A Furious Jose Mourinho Calls Out Players Who Didn't Perform vs Wolves

I don't want to say was [Eric] Bailly or [Phil] Jones and is now Smalling or Lindelöf.

Nuno's side are 10th in the Premier League table at the moment with nine points from six matches.

"You see the level of the teams - you see Liverpool's squad, Manchester City's squad, Chelsea's squad, Tottenham's squad, and Arsenal are improving". It's going to be hard.

José Mourinho believes Manchester United are resolving "defensive problems" better because of a concerted team effort rather than Victor Lindelöf and Chris Smalling being selected as the centre-back pairing in their run of three successive victories.

"I could go in this direction but Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard didn't play".

"But I think it's going to be a very hard season, not just for us, also for the others because the others they can say exactly the same as I am saying". They had [it], we didn't.

In the second half, United kept the intensity high and a sustained spell of pressure came to nothing as Pogba lost the ball near the halfway line and Wolves broke on the counter and Moutinho found the top corner.

"I could say we were exhausted, Champions League, bad pitch [against Young Boys], the body suffers the different impact on an artificial rather than actual grass, not coming home after the match".

Mourinho did not call out Sanchez's performance directly but did criticise his attacking players.

A dour, painfully predictable draw at home to Wolves, however, saw Mourinho criticise the attitude of his players in the aftermath.

Dalot joined United from Porto in the summer but, before he could make his debut for the Red Devils, suffered a knee injury in pre-season.

"He's my agent and that's it, but I think the work in Wolves is good because it is not just about the Portuguese influence - Portuguese manager, staff and players - it is also about getting the right ones". "Football is a little bit like this. He's a very good player". "And I think we have to do better".

"Not sharp enough in the last third", was one of the more negative comments made by Jose Mourinho about his team.
