Jose Mourinho SLAMS Manchester United

Jose Mourinho SLAMS Manchester United front four after goalless draw against West Brom

Mourinho refused to criticise West Brom's tactics, instead criticising his forward line for failing to find the back of the net


Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho took aim at his forward line after they were blunted by West Brom at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils could only register a goalless draw against Tony Pulis' Baggies, leaving them four points behind Manchester City in the race for the top four.

Mourinho refused to criticise West Brom's tactics, instead criticising his front four for failing to find the back of the net.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford were tasked with scoring the goals for United, but fired blanks as they dropped two crucial points.


"I don’t criticise the other team," said Mourinho. "The other team came here to get a point, they came to defend and try win some times. They did that. I have nothing to say in relation to that.

"What I can say is we tried. We had six players absolutely phenomenal in their attitude, mentality and consistency. Valencia, Bailly, Rojo, Young, Carrick and Fellaini.

And then we have four creative players that we need to score a goal and they didn’t.

"They had flashes, moments, they didn’t have consistency and we dropped two points for that.”
