Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho criticises "ridiculous" start in Spurs defeat

Already trailing after Christian Eriksen struck 11 seconds in at Wembley on Wednesday, United's task got more hard when Jones turned a Kieran Trippier cross into his own net.

It was a damaging defeat for Jose Mourinho's team, with Manchester City allowed to surge 15 points clear of its second-place neighbour by beating West Bromwich Albion 3-0. Chelsea is champions again, (had a) fantastic (transfer) market, Liverpool is a great team, Arsenal improved a lot in the market, Tottenham is a fantastic team and they are five points behind us. "I don't want to give you news on an initial approach but I don't think the news is very good", Mourinho said.

"We made a good performance against them in the Premier League and the FA Cup but it is completely different to play them at the Etihad Stadium", he said.

"The players knew the long ball, they knew Harry Kane normally he is already inside, before the kickoff, he is already inside the opponent".

"Then we don't press the ball; one mistake".

"From the start, we were winning first and second balls and when we got it down, we kept it. It is open for second, third, fourth but practically closed for the first", Mourinho said.

Dunphy backed United to secure a top four finish in the Premier League despite their lamentable performance against Spurs, as he suggested circumstances conspired against Mourinho at Wembley.

'I think he's an unbelievable player.

Tottenham had to settle for a 2-0 win even though they dominated for much of the contest, Hugo Lloris only once forced into serious action to keep out Romelu Lukaku.

And Mourinho challenged his players to shrug off the after effects of defeat at Spurs to continue their upward curve in the league this season compared his debut campaign at United a year ago.

"Christian is such an important player for us. Two, three, four or five, I can not say at the moment". Manchester United went on to win eight of their next 10 matches after the Huddersfield defeat, but this time United will have to bounce back after a loss to Tottenham.
