Jose Mourinho salutes ‘amazing’ Man United star after Southampton draw

May JohnsonDec 03, 2018

Mourinho forced into changes and deployed makeshift XI with key players injured.

The draw leaves the Manchester side seventh in the league, six points off the top four and a massive 16 points behind their city rivals, despite Mourinho saying his team could top-four by the end of the year.

Face crucial crunch clash against Arsenal next. It was hard to have any continuity throughout the match. I would say the only problem that we had was that the two attacking players didn't have enough continuity because in midfield we lost too many balls.

"Manchester United feels like a football club which is having to overpay to keep players because they are not in a position of strength, they are running their contracts down basically", Neville said. It was a ideal chance for making certain improvements from the match against Palace, but the Devils instead opted for all of the same mistakes they were making against Newcastle, Bournemouth and other teams.

The 55-year-old used the example of Tottenham to highlight his point, explaining that the days of plundering the north London side for their best players - as Sir Alex Ferguson was able to do a few times - are over.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has said that his team are missing "mad dogs" who "bite the ball all the time".

World waits to see if Trump, Xi reach 'ceasefire'
Trump himself has cast the meeting as a do-or-die encounter that will either result in a deal or an escalation in the trade war. One French source said European leaders were trying to forge a separate statement on climate change excluding the US.

Mourinho's side were 2-0 down at St. Mary's within 20 minutes, although they did rescue the situation to go into halftime at 2-2. I would say the positive examples were Marcus Rashford and Phil Jones.

"By losing so many balls in midfield, we broke that dynamic that normally leads to goals".

Pogba had a rather disappointing performance at the heart of the midfield in the South of the Coast and he appeared disinterested for the vast periods of the opening period of the game.

Mourinho was forced to field a back three which included midfielders Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay after injury ruled out Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling and Eric Bailly.

"I thought he's been outstanding today", Owen told BT Sport.
