Mourinho admits blowing fuse after Man Utd conceded 'disgraceful, childish second goal'

Matic nearly equalized with a thunderous strike that Benteke cleared off the line and United's pressure was rewarded in the 76th minute.

Chris Smalling started the revival before Romelu Lukaku levelled the scores.

Earlier this week, Manchester United fielded a strong team that played poorly in the first half.

"The message was: half I can not tell you because you would have lots of (bleeps) on the television, half of it was tactical information".

"If we didn't concede that second goal and we came from the dressing room direct to change the result I would say I did something good at halftime", he said.

"Disgraceful, childish, you can find so many objectives for the second goal, everything changed, but then the players kept an awesome attitude", Mourinho said. He is the best, no doubt, but he had to do better.

"We were losing to Chelsea last week, then we were losing away from home against a Palace team that needs points", he said.

Mourinho kept faith with Pogba, instead sending on Marcus Rashford for Scott McTominay at half-time.

"I always believe we can win". I will be like that until my last day. He's scored a few goals - not many - but he's scored a few goals.

"No, I was not", Matic replied.

With runaway leaders Manchester City closing in on their third league title in seven seasons, attention has shifted to the fight for Champions League qualification and United's battle with Liverpool to finish second behind their neighbours.

"I saw a group of players give their all for the club against a team who on paper are bigger than us". "We took the game to Manchester United".

"After tonight we will focus on that game and will be waiting with a smile on our faces to welcome them at Old Trafford".

"We once again go away with no points and, like the game against Tottenham, I thought we deserved something". At one stage we look like we were going to get all three but you know the quality Manchester United possess and their strength in depth.
