Having last won the title in 2006, Marcel Gayle, head coach of Waterhouse, said that his club is desperate to win this year’s Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) title for the community.Waterhouse will face defending champions Portmore United in Monday’s final, which will be played at the National Stadium, starting at 8:35 p.m. Based in the violence-plagued community of Drewsland in Kingston, according to Gayle, winning this year’s RSPL title will help to foster peace among the community members. “There is no pressure on me, but we want to win this trophy very badly for the community so that we can bring back the community together,” said Gayle. “I want to walk through the community and see blue and yellow on the walls, which I used to see, and so we want to do this for the community”. “Whenever I walk through the community, the people keep telling me ‘Coach, we want this’, and so I understand because we have been out in the woods for a while, and I think this year could be our year,” Gayle added. Gayle, who was an assistant coach at Waterhouse when they last won the title back in 2006, added that his players have worked hard this season and that they are focused on the task that lies ahead of them. “I think we have been working hard from day one, and I think the guys believe in themselves – that they can do it – and we are confident, and we are just ready to go out there now and display our talent on Monday night,” Gayle said. “It is going to be a cagey one, and so we are expecting a tough game from them (Portmore) because we know that they are the most consistent team in the league,” he said. “But nevertheless, it is a one-off game, and everything is on the line now, but my guys are raring and ready to go out there and play some good football,” said Gayle, while noting that he is expecting an exciting final. “I expect end-to-end stuff from both teams because Portmore have some very exciting players. They are the leading scorers in the Premier League, and this is the two teams with the most goals in the league, and so it is going to be a good one, and so let’s hope we can bring our best game,” said Gayle.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho fears the injuries suffered by striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and defender Marcos Rojo are serious and could result in lengthy absences from the team.Both were substituted with knee injuries during United’s Europa League extra-time win over Anderlecht on Thursday.“I want to wait,” Mourinho said when asked about the injury status of the duo.“But my feeling is not good for both. I want to wait and to be optimistic but I am not,” Mourinho told reporters.Ibrahimovic is United’s top scorer this season, with 17 goals in the Premier League, while Rojo has established himself at the heart of United’s defence.Mourinho is currently without two other central defenders, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones, and he urged them to make a special effort to return quickly from injury.“We have Daley Blind who has experience in the position and I think it is time for Jones and Smalling to be brave and to risk because for the team you have to do everything, that is the way I think.“You cannot do miracles, so miracles I don’t expect but you have to do everything to accelerate the process… with a special spirit you can (come back) sooner than expected. So instead of coming mid-May you can come beginning May — this kind of acceleration of the process,” he said.Mourinho also had words of praise for left back Luke Shaw, who he has publicly criticised in the past.“Luke Shaw today did something for me new that means a lot for me. After 90 minutes, before I knew that I have to change Zlatan, I had Ashley Young ready to come on and (Luke) told me, ‘I am going to play this 30 minutes with cramps. No problem if you need to make a change in another position do it because I am ready for it.’“These are the kind of things that make me trust players,” he said.
12 Out: Marko Arnautovic (Stoke) – £6.4m – Click the right arrow for more advice – In contrast, Stoke are a team who are currently on a far less impressive streak.

In: Michail Antonio (West Ham) – £5.3m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Following his sensational volley against Liverpool in the FA Cup this week, nobody can deny that Antonio is currently on very good form.

Out: Bacary Sagna (Manchester City) – £5.7m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Citys first choice right-back Pablo Zabaleta returned from injury and took back his place in the starting XI last week.
