Mourinho Avoids FA Punishment For Comments After United - Newcastle Clash

Chelsea second assistant coach Marco Ianni with Maurizio Sarri

Marcus Rashford came off the bench to score the late victor but perhaps it was the introduction of Ander Herrera that could provide Jose Mourinho with the balance this team needs, writes Adam Bate.

Mourinho was unhappy with how the first half went, branding it a "disaster", although he praised his side's spirit to make a comeback in the second 45 minutes.

"When the team is really defensive and you have a more defensive mind-set and base it on that, then the team doesn't develop enough in other areas", he explained.

Fraser was responsible for creating the first clear chance in the second half when he attacked from the left and cut-back to David Brooks, who flicked towards goal with his heel to force De Gea into a reaction save. "He understands what I want and what the team needed today".

"With the points we have accumulated so far even if we lose to Man United, people might think, "It's OK, they have had a good start to the season", but we don't see it like that". And I do not just look to my defenders, as a team we did not start pressing up, the work we did during the week.

"In this part of the season, we play away against possibly the three biggest candidates for the title, in Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City, so the calendar was not nice to us".

"When we had to fight and give everything to get three points, the players were able to do it". I love the song "Attack, attack, attack" but you need to know that when you lose the ball you have to have stability. It happened again against a good team but we were prepared for everything. Taken off early in the second half.

"We can not give the first 25 minutes away, it makes the game more hard".

Anthony Martial scored his fifth goal in four games to level the score but United were still searching for a victor late into the second half.

Mourinho said: "I don't belong to the discussions of contracts". It was much better. Now it seems that they can't do without the French winger, who scored in his fourth straight Premier League appearance against Bournemouth.

United are languishing in eighth place in the Premier League and have made a slow start to their Champions League campaign.
