Jose throws in title towel

Jose Mourinho offered up few excuses after his side's Wembley beating

The Red Devils trail neighbours City by 15 points in the title race after the midweek defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, with manager Jose Mourinho admitting his club is now playing for second place.

Christian Eriksen fired Spurs into the lead after just 11 seconds before an own goal from United defender Phil Jones secured victory for the home side before the break.

"The first goal was a fantastic goal".

"I think it should affect [the players] in a positive way", he told MUTV. "It was just a really good game for us and that has to be our focus for the rest of the season - to try to match that".

"After the kick-off, it is ridiculous". What makes it especially ridiculous is that we analysed Tottenham before. They've got some fast players and previous year we didn't cope with that very well and we were poor throughout the whole team.

"Try to finish second". Third mistake, and we don't cover inside the full-back where Eriksen comes.

"Four mistakes after 15 seconds and you are losing 1-0 against a good team". We played an unbelievable game and fully deserved that result.

Tom Brady vs. LeBron James: Who Is the GOAT?
Reimer was not presenting the "Kirk & Callahan Show" on Monday when Brady called in for his weekly interview. New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is no stranger to Super Bowl appearances.

"I changed a few players and the intention was not to punish anyone", Mourinho said when asked to explain his decision.

The France worldwide, who cost the Red Devils a whopping £89million last season, was hooked after 63 minutes and replaced by Juan Mata.

The Belgian has recently returned from a spell on the sidelines due to a knee injury suffered back in October on global duty after suffering third degree damage to the medial collateral ligament. It's great to have him here and we're looking forward to getting to know him and seeing what he can do in training and games.

"In the second half, I tried to give him a position where he could be closer to (Romelu) Lukaku but then he felt the need to drop too much to organise".

Mourinho anticipates the occasion will elevate the players' performance as they attempt to win the game in a bid to bring happiness to all of those who lost someone in the crash.

Mourinho went on to finish by reiterating United's aim for this season in the league is to now finish as high as possible.

Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner insists that his team can overcome Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
