"Manchester City buy the full-backs for the price of the strikers", Mourinho said. They gained 19 points from their first seven games. - PHOTOS: APJose Mourinho has spent £286 million in his two summers in charge at Old Trafford. We are in a moment when we are not scoring the goals we should, and defensively we have some ridiculous goals against. Do you think Jose Mourinho is right with his comments? Mourinho brought in three signings as well - Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic - and was keen on adding a fourth but was priced out of a move for Ivan Perisic by Inter Milan.
Ahead of the game, Mourinho said: "I'm not just saying about the privileged ones with six days to recover and to enjoy and to prepare for the next one, but also the ones with a little bit more (time) than us, for example the ones that play after tomorrow - that extra day means a lot". "When you are talking about the responsibility to win the Premier League, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham don't have it. We always have it because of the history of this club".
Speaking to BBC Radio 5live on the attitude of his players leading to the draw, Mourinho said that the players failed to read the game, labeling their attitude childish and immature. Not even the most passionate of United fans can argue that signing the Belgian was the better deal.
That proved to be the final chance of the half as the home side struggled to carve out chances and went into the break trailing by two goals. "So the boys are doing what they can and they are doing fine".
But they somehow didn't, with Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford and Henrikh Mkhitaryan all spurning glorious opportunities before the sucker-punch from Harry Maguire came seconds from the end.
Jesse Lingard scored an injury-time equaliser and the draw leaves United 12 points behind leaders Manchester City.
"So nothing at all negative to say about my players". We aren't the best team in the world.
