EPL: Mourinho blames Pogba for Man United's 1-1 with Wolves

EPL: Mourinho blames Pogba for Man United's 1-1 with Wolves

United were held to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford by Wolves on Saturday on the back of a 3-0 defeat by Tottenham in their previous home game. United, for his liking, simply do not play on the front foot almost as much as they should at home. When we're at home we should attack, attack, attack. It's not me. I'm not the manager, I can not, like, say that, but obviously we should show more options of playing.

A goal from Fred in the 18th minute put United in the lead but they could not add up to their tally as the Manchester side could not create concise chances.

The Manchester United star is adamant hard-working Alexis Sanchez will overcome his woes at Old Trafford.

"It's true that maybe we should have showed more hunger in some parts".

When asked if his players need to learn such an attitude, Mourinho said, "Come on, this is something you learn when you are a kid in the academy, you don't need experiences at the highest level to learn that".

United have won their last three games on the road, seeing off Burnley, Watford and Young Boys with seven goals scored and only one conceded, but have seen their Premier League prospects dented on home turf.

Neves, a 21-year-old who has reportedly turned heads at Manchester City, was admirably unfazed about the challenge of taking on United in front of 80,000 supporters.


"When we play like this it's easier for us".

"That's my way of thinking - we should move better, yeah".

The France World Cup victor added: "We didn't lose, but for me we should have won".

"Maybe he (Mourinho) is right, I don't know".

"We've played six games in the Premier League, it's not that we should get anxious, but we should obviously get closer".

Mourinho's men now trail Premier League leaders Liverpool by eight points and still have to face their bitter rivals twice.

"We've played six games in the Premier League, it's not that we should get anxious, but we should obviously get closer - get closer and closer".
