London: Manchester United head coach Jose Mourinho highlighted several mistakes by his players and said their opponents Tottenham were better on the day.
Tottenham outclassed Manchester United 2-0 in the English Premier League (EPL) tie here on Wednesday.
The away side looked nowhere in the game, making continous defensive lapses.
“One mistake. We don’t win the ball in the air. Second mistake. We don’t win the second ball on the ground. Third mistake. We don’t cover inside, the full-back inside when Eriksen comes. Four mistakes. Four mistakes after 15 seconds and you are losing 1-0 against a good team,” Mourinho was quoted as saying by the Independent.
“And then a good reaction, we played in their half, we create something, the feeling was we are in the game but the second goal I don’t say ridiculous I say unlucky. It’s a different thing than ridiculous and after that Tottenham has the game in their hands and they are very good in counter attack, they press well,” the Portuguese tactician added.
