Mourinho makes big statement about Man United's Premier League chances

Juventus Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo shoots and scores a goal during their Italian Serie A match against Empoli

Mourinho admitted his team were "lucky" to go in at half-time at 1-1 after Anthony Martial had cancelled out Callum Wilson's opener after what he described as some "absolutely awful" defending in the first half.

They are now seventh, four points behind fourth-place Tottenham and finally have a positive goal difference.

"I love the song "attack, attack, attack", but when you lose the ball you have to have stability, and we did not have it against a good team".

"The team looked like we don't work tactically during the week which is obviously the worst feeling for me because we work so much and I expect my team to be really good and I feel really frustrated with that", Mourinho said.

But how did United fans think he did playing in place of Lukaku?

Turkey is seeking the extradition of 18 suspects who have been detained in Saudi Arabia , so they can be put on trial in Turkey. Analysts say Saudi authorities appear to be trying to defuse the crisis by shoring up support from within the royal family.


Chris Smalling has acknowledged Manchester United must start making quicker starts to games but the defender believes their latest last-gasp win provides further evidence of a team spirit reminiscent of the Alex Ferguson era. It was one of the best first-half performances we have seen in the Premier League since we have been promoted.

'I think Juventus, we started the game a bit in awe, we were off the pace and they were on the front foot but the second half we showed we could give them a game, ' Smalling said.

Although numerous Red Devils should be praised for showing passion and determination in their desire to turn the game around, not everybody was willing to go the extra mile to ensure that we left the Vitality with all three points on Saturday.

"It was a tough one for us".

"When Ronaldo arrived, I wrote to Pjanic in our chatroom: "Sorry Mire, but I think you won't be taking many free kicks this year". When we are in control we have no problems, but when the opponent is in control we do". It makes our games more hard.

Raheem Sterling to become 'ultimate footballer' at Man City, says Darren Bent
The Saints sit 16th in the table, just two points ahead of Fulham and four ahead of Huddersfield, who play each other tonight. It appeared City were capable of scoring nearly at will and a slick move saw them make it three in the 18th minute.


The mood at United has transformed from a month ago when a poor run of four games without a win left the players short of confidence and Jose Mourinho fighting for his job.

Roberto Gagliardini scored twice and Matteo Politano, Joao Mario, and Radja Nainggolan added the other goals as Inter beat Genoa 5-0 for a seventh successive Serie A win.

"We were ready for everything, I can't understand the mentality that brings me more white hair!"

Pogba had told RMC Sport: "I spoke with my brother last summer, I said: 'Imagine, we're in the same group as Juve'".
