Man United should have 10 more points - Mourinho laments inconsistency

A testing time

A testing time

Manchester United now sits second in the Premier League table, but they are 16 points behind their rivals Manchester City, who have already won the Premier League title. Anthony Martial, Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind are also set to be offloaded.

JOSE MOURINHO has told his Manchester United players they must buck up their "inconsistent" attitudes if they are to close the gap to Manchester City next season. This is a huge risk though. De Bruyne, Salah, anyone?

Losing at Spurs isn't like being beaten at Huddersfield or Newcastle, as has also happened to Jose Mourinho's men in 2017-18, but United have been battered in their last three Premier League visits to Tottenham. It would take his stay at the Etihad Stadium to 2020, matching the four-year stint he had with Barcelona.

The last couple of weeks pretty much encapsulate the story of Pogba's season so far, and his time at Old Traffrod, pretty well.

Manchester United are now second in the Premier League, four points above third-placed Liverpool with four games to go. Ashley Fletcher had an opportunity to take all three points while Jesse Lingard had a goal disallowed in the 2nd half as Manchester United were unhappy to take a point after this match.

Juan Mata's own goal gave Stoke City the lead in this encounter, and the Potters' fans were thinking their players would win the match before Englishman Wayne Rooney broke their hearts with a superb goal at the death. "If he does not go to Manchester City, he will go to Manchester United." it was stated, making this a clear two-horse race presumably won by whichever party can make the former Internacional charge and his agent the most attractive offer.

DF Luke Shaw, 6 - An uneven performance, where he added a measure of pace and dynamism when going forward but was very fortunate not to concede a penalty.

'I do not know if he will ever be the player Mourinho wants him to be.

In practice, it was probably as much through a desire to rest legs ahead of Saturday's FA Cup semifinal vs. Tottenham as a mass wielding of the axe, but Pogba's name stood out glaringly among those retained.

Boss Eddie Howe said: "I thought we were OK in large spells tonight and I'm pretty pleased with the performance". Everything was complicated. We couldn't play fast, we couldn't think fast.
