The Red Devils are now unbeaten in nine
Premier League games but the Portuguese
blames their early home form for their lowly
position of sixth
Jose Mourinho has offered poor home form as a reason
why his Manchester United team are not at the top of
the Premier League table.
Mourinho plays down Rooney spat
The Red Devils have won just three league games from
their eight Old Trafford fixtures, last weekend's 1-0 win
over Tottenham ending a run of four consecutive draws
against Stoke, Burnley, Arsenal and West Ham.
Mourinho's men have picked up four wins and two
draws away from home this season, the latest a victory
at Crystal Palace on Wednesday evening, leaving the
Portuguese ruing the opportunities his team missed on
home soil.
"We are doing enough for that [to be in the top six],"
said Mourinho after the 2-1 victory at Selhurst Park. "If
we had the points we lost at home with draws in
matches that we did more than enough to win we would
be close to the top of the league.
"But we lost these points and in this moment we are just
closing the gap to the top four positions, so let's try.
"There are three more matches until the end of the year
and let's see how it ends on December 31 and we can
feel then and smell what is possible to do in the second
part of the season."
United travel to in-form West Brom on Saturday before
ending the year with two home ties, first against David
Moyes' Sunderland and then Middlesbrough.
Mourinho's former club Chelsea sit top of the Premier
League, 13 points above United, having won their last
10 games, and end the season with a trip to Crystal
Palace, before two home fixtures against Bournemouth
and Stoke.
