"This role, further inside, allows me to be closer to the striker, to get in the box, create more things and obviously have more shots at goal". However, despite that Mourinho pointed out at rivals Manchester City spending and buying full-backs for the value of goal-scoring strikers.
Mourinho was reminded that United have invested around 300 million pounds ($401 million) on players since he took charge of the club and leapt upon the comment. "The big historical clubs they are normally punished in the market for their history", he said. You think Inter Milan is not as big as we are?
Mourinho maintained that he does not have an actual football team that is commensurate with the "big club" reputation of Old Trafford.
Last Saturday's 2-2 draw at Leicester was the first of four top-flight games in 10 days for United.
Manchester City have the chance to go 15 points clear at the Premier League summit when they face Newcastle United at St James' Park tonight. "So when you speak about responsibilities to win the Premier League, Tottenham does not have that responsibility?"
The victory ensured Liverpool remain in the thick of the battle for the Champions League places in fourth spot - five points behind secondplaced United.
"[It was a] similar goal that we conceded in other matches and then they defend for 95 minutes, second shot they score again". When you speak about big football clubs, you are speaking about the history of the club. United welcome Burnley to Old Trafford in the league on Tuesday with a busy festive schedule kicking in - the flawless time for Lukaku to have found a new facet to his game when not scoring. You think Real Madrid is not as big as we are?
"Some players have childish decisions and time helps them to have maturity and to decide better", he said.
Mourinho has often thrown his players under the bus after poor results but fans will surely be pointing fingers at him just as much as anyone else. For us to score two goals we need to play in their half for 45 minutes, with only one defender.
The table tells us they're a different side altogether when Pogba is on the pitch.
