Paul Pogba fails to pick up where he left off against Leicester

Paul Pogba fails to pick up where he left off against Leicester

United's manager refused to share any thoughts about his players, claiming he has been criticised by the media for speaking too openly in the past about individuals who have displeased him.

"Well if he only wanted one then I would say that (the board let Mourinho down)", he said.

"The week leading up was good and I expected the team collectively to be better".

"The confidence of the players, I think you are right", replied Mourinho, when asked if it would be hard to raise the spirits of his team. My job is players performing, playing for the team and playing for the fans and that's what Paul did against Leicester.

"The press, the pundits are usually very critical of me when I go in that direction".

Man United and Pogba are due to face Tottenham in their next Premier League outing on Monday August 27. Maybe we didn't have attitude to break them, to kill them when we had to kill them, to go through the lines, and that's a lesson we have to keep in mind and play much better next game. "The attitude has to be right and I think maybe we missed that".

"I think we lived an incredible season with cameras".

"If we think it's going to the same or easier than last season, it's not going to be". Different teams, different tactics. Obviously it is still early in the season, but it does look unlikely that Manchester United are anywhere near good enough, as we sit here today.

United contributed to their own downfall, making mistakes that allowed Glenn Murray, Shane Duffy and Pascal Gross from the penalty spot to give Brighton a 3-1 lead at half-time. "We didn't deserve to win", he told BBC Sport.

"I am very proud with the performance", Hughton said. "Of course it was a good result and some very positive signs in the performance too". He had little impact on the game and his attempts to galvanise his team-mates during a torrid first half in which they conceded three times appeared half-hearted.

Will Jose Mourinho be the first Premier League manager sacked this season?

Aguero, who turned 30 in the close-season, has now scored 14 times in his last eight Premier League games at City's Etihad Stadium. "I agree with him, with José, you can not buy class".

Mourinho suggested he had taken reaction to his comments last season to heart, telling the BBC: "I have to learn from my reality".

Ben Kingsley, the documentary's narrator, also unfavourably compares Mourinho's reactive, "park the bus" football to Guardiola's high-pressing, possession-based style. I do think they will finish in the top four, but the top four historically has never been the benchmark of what Manchester United are.
