Jose Mourinho insists his Manchester United side need to build stability this season.
The Portuguese boss started the campaign in spectacular fashion, but Man United currently sit sixth in the Premier League, nine points off league leaders Chelsea.
After a brilliant team showing against Arsenal, Man United deserved to walk away from Old Trafford with nothing less than all three points.
Speaking about the situation, Mourinho claims Man United need some stability moving forward.
“I have got to the clubs and have always won right away,” he said.
“And this is a more difficult reality [this season], because it is an extremely difficult competition, with teams being prepared for a lot longer, with excellent players, with excellent coaches.
“Manchester [United] really live in a period that needs stability — a stability that the club wants to give me, a stability that the club gives me, a stability that the fans give me, but that the press does not accept very well.”
The pressure will continue to mount on Mourinho’s men and as the Portuguese boss claimed, following his success at his previous clubs, there are high expectations at Man United.
It’s only normal for team’s to hit a rough patch but United need to start picking up points rather than letting the gap between themselves and the top four teams get even bigger.
