Mourinho United's defeat to Newcastle was beautiful

Mourinho United's defeat to Newcastle was beautiful

He insisted that he still needs to prove his quality and worth week-in-week-out for the club.

"I'm fully committed to win the award this season of the best-behaved manager on the touchline", Mourinho said. "I'm not flawless. I'm not going from the Bad One to the ideal One, no way, but I try, I make an effort and I'm happy with the way things are going".

"I'm serious, I prepare myself, I'm really happy".

Mourinho also provided an update on the duo in his pre-match press conference, briefly confirming their unavailability. "But with some comments from important people in football, I got a little bit confused because, for me, box-to-box means box-to-box and means you have to be good in this box, you have to be good in this road and you have to be good in that box". For me, it was preparation of the games.

"I don't like to complain about referees in this situation".

"The culture the refs try to put into practice is also part of our football". Will they turn things around, or will United take advantage of that opportunity? If our players continue the good work at Tyneside, I don't see why we can not return home with all three points.

"Clearly I know we lost the duel in the air and it's hard to accept that".

"It's really far from the goal, clearly the positions were and the players know the positions they have to be, but we missed the challenge in the air". Defenders are not going to let the most skilful players play with freedom, that's the nature of the game.

"I think it's the nature of the game that the more you fear, the more you target, and you fear the most talented players".

"You fear the most talented players so it's normal there will be an approach with those players".

"At 24? Every player is in an evolution until the end of his career", Mourinho said.

Newcastle's goal came from a free-kick that was headed across goal and then laid off by Dwight Gayle for Ritchie to score his first of the season in the Premier League.

Manchester United star Antonio Valencia has refused to give up hope of pipping Manchester City to the Premier League title this season.

Goals from Darren Peacock, David Ginola, Les Ferdinand, Alan Shearer and a wonderful chip from defender Phillipe Albert sealed all three points for Keegan's "Entertainers", serving as the flawless revenge for the Charity Shield defeat by the Red Devils months prior.

For the Champions League, their first hurdle will be Sevilla in the round of 16.

"At Barcelona, he had a few years at a club that felt the responsibility to play to win it".

Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku have all been named in the starting line-up against Newcastle, while Juan Mata is the only recognised attacking player among the substitutes.

"Juan Mata obviously has more because he's a victor of the trophy, but we don't have many players with that know-how". "He's a tough boy, he's a pure guy, he's a guy that copes with that".
