Man United boss Mourinho says they were killed by 'ridiculous goal'

  • Juan Mata and Romelu Lukaku scored goals in Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Huddersfield in the Premier League

Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Marouane Fellaini will miss today's Premier League clash against Huddersfield Town at Old Trafford after the midfielder picked up a knee injury in the midweek 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.

It was a damaging defeat for Mourinho's team, with Manchester City allowed to surge 15 points clear of its second-place neighbor by beating West Bromwich Albion 3-0. It's a backhanded compliment, but as the game went on, the boos diminished as much as the Chilean's role in the match. With the number of points we have in normal conditions that would leave the fight open.

"He has to take one on the chin and I didn't see him have that defensive awareness".

"We made a good performance against them in the Premier League and the FA Cup but it is completely different to play them at the Etihad Stadium", he said.

After the kickoff, Jan Vertonghen's high, long pass from inside his own half reached Harry Kane who headed to Dele Alli and the midfielder flicked the ball across for Eriksen to finish. "We are trying to finish second". We don't win the second ball on the ground; third mistake.

"It was a good reaction for 10 minutes but then the second goal mentally killed us and gave Tottenham the possibility to play the way they like to play". "I guess we had around 85% possession in the first half but it was not enough".

Had United won, the gap would have been five points, and things would have been looking slightly rosier for Jurgen Klopp's men who play Tottenham at Anfield this Sunday.

To make his night worse, United's bitter rivals City stretched their lead at the summit to 15 points, Mourinho's focus now on cementing the runners-up spot. It was certainly a disappointment but the outcome was a result of poor collective performance, to say the least.

"I always think when the leader has a certain distance, I have been there a few times, you are calm, you are relaxed and you don't feel the pressure", he said.

New signing Lucas Moura was paraded around Wembley at half-time as Pochettino's attacking options are bolstered following his deadline day arrival from Paris St Germain.
