José Mourinho: we shot ourselves by gifting Arsenal easy goals

Syndicate Post image

Mourinho's side put in a much improved performance to earn a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford on Wednesday night but the Portuguese coach insisted his team are not making things easy for themselves after conceding their 24th and 25th goals of the season thanks to mistakes from David De Gea and Marcos Rojo.

Both second-half goals came in a insane minute as firstly Rojo turned the ball off Alexandre Lacazette and into the United net in his attempts to make a last-ditch tackle.

Jose Mourinho's team have now gone four games without a win and remain in eighth place in the standings, while Arsenal are down to fifth despite having extended their unbeaten run in the top flight to 13 matches.

Amid an underperforming side this season, goalkeeper David de Gea has remained in nearly impeccable form, but the Spaniard spilled Shkodran Mustafi's header over the line to hand Arsenal the lead 26 minutes in.

Martial levelled four minutes later, sweeping home after Marcos Rojo's free kick was well-saved by keeper Bernd Leno but Herrera, who had looked offside, kept the ball alive and squared for the Frenchman.

Arsenal nearly added a third goal in a matter of minutes, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang being superbly denied by De Gea from close range before Mkhitaryan somehow fired over from no more than three yards out.

After a reporter suggested United looked "happier" without Pogba and Lukaku in the line-up, Mourinho said: "I don't understand where you want me to go. No". Rob Holding we are going to wait for the doctors, but it is a big injury. "We could have won this match in certain moments, but they equalised very quickly after both our goals".

"I shouted a lot in the first half but I wasn't angry".

Tottenham Hotspur shook off their north London derby defeat by Arsenal with Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Son Heung-min all on target for Mauricio Pochettino's side at Wembley where new Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl watched from the stands. Even in matches like today where we play well we always shoot ourselves [in the foot].

Arsenal were barely done celebrating when the ball was in the net at the other end as a misunderstanding between Sead Kolasinac and Leno allowed Jesse Lingard to nip in and equalise.

Southampton, Burnley and Fulham occupy the three relegation spots with nine points each.
