Mourinho: United form not down to my relationship with players

"Very hard match for us but a very hard match for them in spite of our problems, with players, with selections in spite of that it won't be easy".

The draw at the weekend away to Saints, who then sacked Mark Hughes, coupled with Arsenal's win against Spurs left the Red Devils eight points behind the top four.

"We need a good run of results, not waste points we shouldn't waste". We need to not be so unlucky with problems that we have.

"Last week before Crystal Palace game I told my hopes and targets wereend of December to be in that position". The player's colossal showings at the back have played a key role in the Partenopei's rise in recent seasons, and he is now widely regarded as one of the best defenders in the world.

"I don't think Everton will be in front of Manchester United by the end of the season". In the last decade, only Arsenal have recovered from a worse position to finish in the top four after starting the 2012-13 season with 21 points from 14 games.

"I think at the end of the season the top six will be the teams you think".

Oklahoma, Alabama, Notre Dame, Clemson in

City's neighbours United are also at home to Championship strugglers in the form of Reading. Posh played Middlesbrough in the quarter-finals of the Rumbelows Cup in 1992.

Back in October things were crumbling around Jose Mourinho as his hide failed to win four games in a row, across three competitions, and there were angry words exchanged with Paul Pogba at the training ground.

"We are going to be in difficulty again to build the team".

Speaking to reporters, Mourinho was asked what they are aiming for with the rest of the season.

"It is one thing is to speak about an interview to Brazilian TV, which you can see". Despite that I would still find it hard to back them at the now quoted [2.5] match odds price. "I told after the (Southampton) game the reason why, in the second half especially, we didn't have those consecutive waves of attack", he added.

Now, a cynic may well suggest that Mourinho didn't respond to this question because he doesn't know the answer, but of course we are not going to suggest that.
