    WARNOCK'S WORDS
    It will come as no surprise to learn Neil Warnock is no stranger to FA charges for criticism of referees. His latest charge comes after the Palace manager suggested referee Craig Pawson may have looking to "even up" his decisions after showing the red card to Chelsea's Cesar Azpilicueta - two minutes later he sent off Damien Delaney. He told reporters after the match at Selhurst Park: 
    They buzzed me down from upstairs saying it'll be evened up if we're not careful. Delaney shouldn't have given him a chance, but it was wrong that four or five Chelsea players surrounded the referee.

    I thought he was influenced by one or two things. John Terry's (non) booking - if that's one of my players, it's a booking. I don't understand why it's not an even platform.

    WARNOCK'S VIEW

    RENE RECKONS
    Former Manchester United assistant and Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen was talking to SSNHQ's Morning View and he tells us to expect the unexpected at Old Trafford for Super Sunday. 
    I think you can't put it beyond Mourinho and coming up and doing something different. Everybody knows about the fantastic performance he produced with Chelsea at Manchester City last season, I can see something similar coming again this Sunday at Old Trafford. He will be very clever about it. He will have a good idea how best to exploit the weaknesses at Manchester United at this moment in time.
    Teams still look at Manchester United (and) they know they will get chances and can score goals against them and that has gone against them up to now.
