Manchester United manager, Mourinho has admitted that he feels let down by United’s performance in the opening 45 minutes – but insists they could have left with a point.
“I think the first half they were much better,” he told Sky Sports. We started to win back. We started the game with players below the normal level.
“We need to be sharp in the way we think, the way we play. “We had a few players below that level and we were made to pay.
“The second half was completely different. We were in control, much more dangerous. We had chances to equalise.”
Asked if he picked the wrong team, he said: “Look, I have two or three players in the first half who if I know what was going to happen I would not play them. Sometimes players disappoint managers.
“They didn’t give me what I want. It’s their fault, it’s my fault.”
