Jose Mourinho explains the chances of Man United finishing in the top four

Jose Mourinho is concerned Manchester United’s results at Old Trafford will cost them a Premier League top four place.

Man United were handed with the perfect opportunity to move out of sixth place against Bournemouth, but failed to claim all three points in the 1-1 draw.

They are three points off fourth place with 12 games to play, but the result was the club’s seventh home draw in the league this season.

Asked if he was worried after the draw, Mourinho replied with concerns.

“Of course, of course,” he said.

“If you look at the points we lost at home – I don’t speak about the Man City match – all the other matches we drew.

“If you accumulate these points, you are talking about 10 or 12 and with these points we are not just speaking about the top four, we would be speaking about the top two or top one.

“We lost too many points at home and obviously cost us our position.

“Are we dead in relation to the top four? No, we are not dead. We are not dead.

“There are matches to play, points to win, points to lose, points to fight for. We are not dead.

“But the reality is that we are losing too many points at home.”

Man United may be on an unbeaten run, but they need to close the gap on the top four with consistency, as the momentum from winning silverware at this stage in the season should have pushed the players harder.

The squad face a busy set of fixtures this month and hopes are Mourinho can continue to rotate his players as he looks to keep them fit.
