Mourinho: We 'controlled' a 'strong' Tottenham side

Mourinho: We 'controlled' a 'strong' Tottenham side”

However, on Saturday afternoon, United were handed a huge positive as they defeated high-flying Tottenham 1-0 at Old Trafford.

Jose Mourinho insists he would have been proud of his team even if they hadn't won against Spurs.

"I would like the supporters to explain to me why they don't support him so much because he gives everything and I think it is not fair when scoring the goal or not scoring the goal [he] makes the whole difference", Mourinho told MUTV.

"I think he's a very good manager, but don't ask me more than that".

"Apart from Dele Alli's chance, we controlled them well".

Mourinho said he was "disappointed" with some supporters' reaction to Lukaku during the win over Tottenham on Saturday after the Belgium global went a fifth game without scoring.

He said: "The fans are the fans and I said that the fans pay for their tickets and are free to express themselves and say what they want to express".

Their poor form comes at a time when the goals have started to dry up for Romelu Lukaku - who has gone 297 minutes without finding the back of the net - and when chief creator Henrikh Mkhitaryan has not set up a goal since the end of August.

If United better CSKA Moscow's result against Basel they will qualify - although they could still need points from their last two games to finish first. He is playing extremely well for us.

"We tried and we deserved the victory".

"Nobody here is thinking of Chelsea- only Benfica and the Champions League", he said.

In the standings, Manchester United remains at the 2nd place (23 pts), but distance his opponent of the day, which was stagnant in the third rank (20 pts).
