Jose Mourinho has spoken out about Manchester United’s form this season, claiming the side have not been good enough in front of goal.
The side managed to extend their unbeaten run to 20 games following the 1-1 draw against Everton earlier in the week, but have now drawn nine times at home in the league and 12 overall.
Man United players have failed to remain clinical in front of goal and have missed plenty of clear-cut opportunities which could have easily left us comfortably inside the Premier League top four.
Speaking about the team in his press conference, Mourinho insists the players have made the wrong decisions this season.
“I still think in spite of the bad results we are strong at home. Why? Because we lost only one game and we know why we lost that, because strange things happened during it. One defeat at home all in competitions and what makes me think we are strong is the way opponents play against us,” he said.
“It’s impossible for us to score on the counterattack. We are not strong enough because we are not winning, we are not good enough to score the goals that we should. We are giving the opponents’ goalkeeper a chance to be so many time the MOM and I repeat the same that I told in the last match, it’s not a critic, but many many decisions that punished us during the whole season.”
Man United are now four points behind fourth-placed Manchester City and with Mourinho leading towards the Europa League, it’ll be interesting to see how he fields his players across both competitions.
The Portuguese boss will not want to give up on a Premier League top four finish until it’s mathematically impossible while still fielding his best players in the Europa League.
