Sunday’s defeat against Chelsea has dented Manchester United’s six match unbeaten streak in all competitions. The match was a nightmare for Mourinho and the team as they get trashed away by 4-0 against Mourinho’s former club to which he hold unrelenting grudge.
In recent news published by skysports it was told that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has challenged his players to show they are “men” by recovering from the 4-0 humiliation at Chelsea when they will going to face Manchester City in the EFL Cup on Wednesday.
This is going to be second clash between the two teams in less than two months. The last premier league clash on September 10 between them was in the favour of City where Pep Guardiola’s army crushed the Red devil by 2-1.
“I would prefer to play in the Premier League. It’s a bad feeling in the Premier League. With the combination of results, the gap to the top is six points,” Mourinho said in an interview with MUTV.
“We have had a very difficult period of matches. We lost points this week and, even in the match when we played phenomenal against Stoke (1-1 draw), we lost points then. Now we need to win matches.
“I am not saying they are easy ones, but we have Burnley, we have Swansea, West Ham, Sunderland, Middlesbrough – matches that we need to win.
“The top four, top five, they have to play between themselves like we did this week against Chelsea and Liverpool.
“They are going to lose points too, so we are in the run, but there is no way to hide.
“We are really, really sad, but again this is not for kids, this is for men and…we have to be men and work for the next one,” he added.
