Jose Mourinho: Manchester United were 'defensively awful' against Bournemouth

04 November 2018

The second half saw United force Bournemouth onto the back foot, but they missed chance after chance, including a stunning miss from substitute Marcus Rashford, which left Mourinho wringing his hands in disbelief.

No Premier League side has claimed more points (seven) from losing positions so far this season but, win or no win, Mourinho can not afford for his side to keep turning in performances like this, not least because Martial won't be able to bail them out every time.

The striker has scored three goals in four games for England this season but his club form has been questioned after finding the net just once in 10 appearances.

"Doesn't matter how many minutes until the end of the game, we have the feeling of anything can happen and, even missing chances as we did in the second-half, chance after chance after chance, they keep going until the end". "It's one of the best since we have been promoted and can't fault anyone with effort".

United finally clicked in the 35th minute when Sanchez showed his worth. Mourinho's side were fortunate to be level at half-time but after the restart, they improved the longer the game went on and should have claimed a decisive second goal after Young struck the bar with a free-kick.
