Mourinho defends players, record after Spurs loss

Mourinho defends players, record after Spurs loss

Lucas Moura's second goal of the night ensured a 3-0 win for Tottenham, heaping more pressure on brooding manager Jose Mourinho. A summer of transfer discontent preceded a awful defeat at Brighton in their second Premier League fixture of the season.

Manchester United must stick with manager Jose Mourinho despite the club's dismal start to the Premier League campaign, former defender Gary Neville has said. "Our fans are more intelligent than that".

Maybe it's easy to score but after 1-0 you want to play safe and say, "OK, come on, let's play safe and finish the game 1-0".

After going back and forth with a reporter on the subjects of the result's significance and the home fans, some of whom left early and some of whom stayed after the full-time whistle, Mourinho had heard enough. We've seen this movie before with the Special One, who famously wore out his welcome at Chelsea (twice) and at Real Madrid. We'll be better next week. We had Valencia and Luke Shaw arriving in unsafe positions, we miss goals with an open goal, we miss chances, we were unlucky in rebounds in both goals, we lost a game by conceding at the first corner of the match against us in minute 50. There are lot of positive things but we've got to get points.

Both played against Brighton and had a horror showing against the Seagulls, evidencing United's issues in defence. What he was basically saying is that he's been told to work with the players he's been given.

The team looked fine in the opening half and created chances, but Mourinho brought on central defensive midfielder Marouane Fellaini down 2-0 in the second half and started small midfielder Ander Herrera at center back. "I've said what I need to say, and I won't say another word about that". Three-nil. Do you know what this means (holding up three fingers)? We've got so much belief in each other.

The players have been given Tuesday off and will return to Carrington on Wednesday to prepare for Sunday's trip to Burnley. "In the first half zero corners, zero free-kicks, on minute 50-something they had one corner and scored a goal, and you want, with that goal, you want to transform the story of the game".

"I think it's so important because it puts us in a very important position in the table", he told a news conference.
