Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has risked a new run-in with the English football authorities by claiming he is judged by a different set of rules to rival managers, AFP reports.He hit out at perceived inconsistencies in a cryptic post-match press conference after seeing his side held to a goalless draw by Hull City at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Wednesday.Mourinho seemed angry at referee Mike Jones’s failure to clamp down on what he saw as Hull’s time-wasting or show visiting striker Oumar Niasse a second yellow card for a high challenge on Marcos Rojo.But when asked for his views on the officiating, Mourinho said, “Don’t ask me questions that I cannot answer.”He went on to allude to his own stadium ban last season, during his time as Chelsea manager, and the recent behaviour of his Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger and Liverpool rival Jurgen Klopp.Wenger was hit with a four-game touchline ban for pushing the fourth official, while Klopp revealed he had apologised after screaming in the fourth official’s face during his side’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea.“You know clearly that I am different,” Mourinho went on. “I am different. The rules for me are different.“I am different in everything. I watched my team play in a hotel (when banned), I was forbidden to go to the stadium, my assistant had a six-match stadium ban and he didn’t touch anyone.
A pair of struggling teams, the Raiders and 49ers, are both in dire need of a victory and will meet on “Thursday Night Football” in Week 9.It’s been tough sledding for Oakland (1-6) so far this season. Thursday will mark its second game without wide receiver Amari Cooper, who was dealt to Dallas. The Raiders fell to the Colts last week, 42-28, but they got a strong performance from quarterback Derek Carr, who threw three touchdowns. Running back Doug Martin also put together his best game of the season, averaging 5.5 yards per carry in relief of Marshawn Lynch, who is on injured reserve.

TV: Fox, NFL NetworkStreaming: Amazon, fuboTV (7-day free trial) San Francisco (1-7) has not been the same since QB Jimmy Garoppolo went down with a season-ending knee injury in Week 3. Backup C.J. Beathard has been serviceable at times, but he is coming off of his worst performance of the year in an 18-15 loss to the Cardinals. Beathard completed only half of his passes, and 12 of his 14 completions went to just two different receivers. The 49ers are riding a six-game losing streak, but they will return home to the site of their one win.Both the Raiders and 49ers sit in last place in their respective divisions and are well out of playoff spots, so Thursday represents an opportunity to get their seasons back on the right foot.
