Manchester United's Jose Mourinho changes course and won't criticise individual players

Chris Hughton goes head to head with Jose Mourinho this Sunday

Mourinho said: "You know, a movie without me doesn't sell much".

"I will be very happy to analyse my players' performances when they were very good. When I can't do that, don't push me to the other side".

"Look, when I speak about individual displays and am critical with my players, you don't accept it", Mourinho told Sky after the game.

Paul Pogba pulls one back from the penalty spot, but it's too late! "The attitude we had was not like we wanted to beat them, they had more hunger than us".

'I was obviously not expecting big mistakes and we were punished by these mistakes and when you lose your confidence there is a tendency to lose a bit of confidence, lose some direction of the game plan. Different teams, different tactics.

Shaw scored Manchester United's second goal in a 2-1 win over Leicester City at Old Trafford to scoop the man of the match award.

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Chris Hughton or José Mourinho?




"They have got to do more".

Sam Allardyce believes that Jose Mourinho is still dealing with the hangover from Louis van Gaal's time at Manchester United.

"That is true, you can not buy class", City's manager said.

Mourinho was displeased with the series, claiming that the Citizens could buy the best players but they couldn't buy class. Sometimes you make mistakes and are punished, sometimes the opponent doesn't take advantage of the gifts, and sometimes they do and this time was nearly three on three so they were critical in the gifts that we gave them and because of that I think they deserve [to win]. We did it for ourselves. I'm not agreeing with Jose in terms of [being] disrespectful.

On United's rivals, though, Mourinho added: "Liverpool are trying to win the title with their unbelievable investment".

"Of course the opponents are there but it's his opinion, it's José's opinion".

By the end the home supporters had changed their tune to: "Can we play you every week?" and "you're going down with the Palace". It's simple like that. He prefers to operate with an experienced group of players, and he has always had central defenders to repel most of what the opposition throw at him.
