Jose Mourinho has admitted that his side Tottenham did not take the game against Man United too serious after losing 2-1 at Old Trafford. Marcus Rashford double was enough for the Red Devils to shoot themselves above Spurs on the table as Dele Alli scored his side’s only goal. United dominated the match from start to finish as the Lilly Whites struggled to penetrate their opponent’s defense, not until their first shot on target that resulted in a goal.
Mourinho is sad with his team’s performance after failing to rise to the occasion against his former team. “I tried to fight that state of mind, I tried to tell them exactly the way United approach these matches at home – the strong starts, running, pressing, the morale of the supporters.
“When United face the big teams, people think it will be more difficult, as the responsibility changes, but they feel more comfortable.
“We knew what we had to do, but after one minute of the second half, we conceded a goal. United will be happy with the points and overall they deserve it. “We only have ourselves to blame,” Mourinho said.
