EPL aftermath: 'Childish' Manchester United slammed by Jose Mourinho
Dec 27, 2017, 01:04
First-half goals from Ashley Barnes and Steven Defour had put Burnley on course for their first victory at Old Trafford in over 55 years.
Mourinho responded with a double substitution at the break, bringing on Lingard and Henrikh Mkhitaryan for Ibrahimovic and Rojo, and the move nearly paid instant dividends.
Meanwhile, second-half goals from Alvaro Morata and Spanish compatriot Marcos Alonso earned Chelsea a 2-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion, moving the Premier League champions to within a point of second-placed Manchester United.
"One thing is a big club and another thing is a big football team that you know is not one of the best teams in the world, so when you speak about responsibilities to win the Premier League, Tottenham does not have that responsibility". Mourinho's side were seconds away from a win that would have kept them in touch with Premier League leaders Manchester City.
"We were punished by our mistakes", Mourinho told. "It was an easy match to win, we did everything to win but when you lose big chances".
Wilfred Ndidi sprayed a 60-yard pass to Riyad Mahrez, who only had Smalling and De Gea for company.
United dominated in the second half and the result should never have been in question with 19 attempts on goal in the match.
The Belgian put through first Martial, who fired wildly over the bar, and then Lingard, also clean through, who could only hit a post.
United failed to capitalise on Amartey's 73rd-minute sending off and Mourinho looked to shore up the lead instead of extending it, bringing on Ander Herrera for Lingard with 15 minutes left in the match.
And the latter would be United's saviour, reducing the deficit with a deft flick in the 53rd minute, just moments after missing a gilt-edged chance.
"The players immediately have to adapt and read the game and they didn't".
Leicester had also suffered EFL Cup defeat in midweek, losing on penalties to Manchester City.
After United took the lead they were fortunate not to fall further behind, but showed character to come back and equalise. I thought we could nick it towards the end but obviously time ran out and now we look forward to the next game [against Southampton]. Although the Red Devils are touted as favourites going into the game, let us not forget that Jose Mourinho's side are now facing a slump of sorts. It's fantastic for the future.
