Mourinho blames Man United's lack of heart for Palace draw

Posted November 27, 2018

Mourinho's comments about his players have come back under scrutiny ahead of Tuesday's Champions League tie against Young Boys after he questioned their "heart" following the goalless draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday. It proved a profitable formula when Young Boys travelled to Valencia and with neither team impressing at the back, attacking opportunities are expected to be plentiful. "Everyone in the changing room is a fighter and we want the best for the team and the club". I don't feel pressure to play at home.

Mourinho also confirmed defender Victor Lindelof is set for an extended spell on the sidelines with what he described as "a proper injury". "I want my players to be proactive not reactive", said Mourinho.

As he plans to crank up the pressure on his players to secure a victory against Young Boys, Mourinho was asked if his players prefer to play away rather than at home due to the expectations of United's 75,000-plus supporters at Old Trafford.

"It anxious me today to watch Palace stride up and down the pitch effortlessly and watching our players huffing and puffing a little bit".

"What I want is a team to start strong, not waiting", Mourinho added.

"We had more men, we were more mature, we were more prepared for life, we were less protected". I don't want to take their credit away.

"I think Jose gave the right message before the game saying they will end up in the top four".

"If we have him for the Christmas period, when we need as many as possible, it will be good".

Manchester United fans will be hoping Cole and many of Mourinho's former players are correct as they've continued to publicly defend him.

Mourinho's woes were further compounded when he confirmed that his much improved and increasingly influential Sweden defender Victor Lindelöf will be absent because of a muscle injury - nearly certainly his thigh - and could also be sidelined over the impending festive period. I think it is only a matter of time until they go in.
