Europa League: Mourinho slams Mkhitaryan after Manchester United defeat

Man United star Wayne Rooney

United resume domestic action on Sunday away at Swansea City, by which time they could be 11 points behind English Premier League leader and bitter rivals Manchester City.

But despite the fact United were two goals down by the time Mkhitaryan made his entrance, Mourinho singled out his performance for criticism and demanded better if he is ever going to become a regular, even though he does not now plan to sell the 27-year-old.

With pressure growing on the Portuguese tactician, Fellaini said United's players were still confident in Mourinho's methods. They're struggling to score goals and to win games of football, with (Daley) Blind and (Marcus) Rojo at centre-half, they nearly need to score three goals, because they look like they're going to give goals away all the time. We are fragile, I know we are.

"We started really well, but after we lost against Manchester City it's been up and down".

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was fortunate that his altercation with Simon Kjaer was missed by officials as tempers frayed, with Jeremain Lens, on loan from Sunderland, adding to United's problems with a superb second-half free-kick.

I think we did not deserve (to win) as for me football is from the first second.

United now face a tense three-way battle for qualification from Group A with Fenerbahce and Feyenoord who they now trail by one point after four games played. "They go immediately in there, we are sleeping, we don't react and then the game is a different story". "We had great positions to score, headers not going in direction of the ball, bad passes in the final third, shots that could hit the target and didn't".

United also suffered a major blow with Paul Pogba limping off injured in the first half and Mourinho lamented that no yellow card had been given for the challenge on him. The England worldwide seemed to get a new lease of life with the goal, and almost scored another goal in the dying minutes, but his header was cleared off the line by the Fenerbahce player. United slipped to third, one point off the pace. "We depend only on us". I think we have the right manager and we have to give him the confidence and the time he needs. "No, it's too early for him", he said.
