Mourinho Blames Man United's Players For West Brom Defeat

Only 11 can start – Mourinho bristles at Rashford Martial questioning
After being asked why Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford are not starting games for Manchester United Jose Mourinho hit out at the

Jose Mourinho admits Paul Pogba needs to show much more consistency in his performances and has challenged the midfielder to maintain the form that saw him nearly single-handedly dismantle Manchester City last week.

The Portuguese was unimpressed with his players' efforts and attacked their lack of fluidity and desire to take too much touches.

Mourinho had only revealed what he said to Pogba after the derby in an interview on Saturday night and it seems the 25-year-old has already fallen short of expectations.

United have scored a full 30 goals fewer than City this season and Mourinho has not managed to get his side to click, despite being able to bring on further talent such as Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial.

It is hard to speak about Manchester City for me, but what Pep Guardiola has done is fantastic; to win the title with the football he plays is great.

"Manchester City, we've won you the league", chanted the travelling Albion fans as time ran out but, in truth, United, ridiculously, had done the damage themselves.

With football being football, Jose Mourinho's men instead lost to bottom of the table West Brom at Old Trafford to lose the one-sided league race, to a team who were without a win since January.

"We did not deserve to lose, we gave them opportunity to win the match".

"It's a big disappointment". You don't win titles with inconsistency.

"After beating Manchester City we wanted a winning spirit until the end of the season but today was one of those days". "Everyone is disappointed. We didn't play well at all and it's a bad afternoon for us".

Although the West Brom board are believed to want somebody with more experience, Moore certainly did his chances of becoming the next full-time boss no harm, even if avoiding relegation looks a lost cause. It is not ours yet and we need to be very clear about that.

It's not just two games, it's about the course of the season and the quality football that City have played game after game. "Sometimes, these things happen".
