José Mourinho says Manchester United semi-final places are up for grabs

Manchester United fans

Kinda, but a full yes wouldn't have been vintage Mourinho. "I knew that sooner or later that would be, and if I was in their position I would be very upset (if) someone said they won the league because Man United lost against West Bromwich Albion".

Jose Mourinho has told his Manchester United players that Wembley places are up for grabs in Wednesday's match at Bournemouth.

"I don't know if I was the first or second or third but I congratulated them face to face when I had the chance", Mourinho said.

"We were the masters of complication".

"We couldn't play fast, we couldn't think fast, everything was complicated". There was no fluidity. "We did not deserve to lose, but we gave them opportunity to win the match".

However the United boss wrote in his programme notes ahead of the 0-1 defeat to West Brom at Old Trafford on Sunday: "Winning a derby is always good".

A week after preventing its neighbors from clinching the title in front of their own fans by rallying from 2-0 down to win 3-2, United delivered a similarly unlikely result as managerless West Brom pulled off one of the shocks of the season. Meanwhile, espite seeing Manchester City emerge champions of the 2017/18 Premier League season, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has insisted that he won't do "anything crazy" in the transfer market this summer in an attempt to catch their cross-town rivals.

'We were deservedly punished, ' Mourinho said.

The former Premier League star took to Twitter and wrote: "How can Pogba do so well 2nd half last week and then be so poor this week? ".

Asked if he would rotate his players for the midweek league game on the south coast, Mourinho indicated that some of those who played against West Brom would feature again at Bournemouth because they had lost their place for the semi-final. Despite Pogba under-performing, he is clearly still a world-class player when on song and Mourinho has a history of letting top talent go, only to see them flourish elsewhere.

"I won too much to be happy with one big victory". You don't win titles with inconsistency.

'Everybody will try to improve - like we did from last season.

The 2012 title win had the infamous last-gasp goal by Sergio Aguero.
