  • Brazil superstar Fred scores as Wolves force Manchester United to 1-1 draw

Mourinho said: "If we had played against Wolves like we played against Tottenham, then I think we win".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho questioned his players' attitude after they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

"I think they got good young players and got also good experienced, stable players".

"That is the attitude that I like my team to have". They had [it], we didn't.

It means that United already sit a massive ten points behind leaders Liverpool in the Premier League title race after just six games, something that plenty of fans are understandably frustrated about.

After three wins from three away games, United entered the match perhaps confident of a win, but it didn't materialise, something which Mourinho said was hard to understand.

"I am not saying we are going to have more points than last season because last season we collect a very acceptable level of points", he said. We came back with a good spirit, in peace because we recovered. This is something you learn when you're a kid in the academy. It is a basic law of football, you have to play at the maximum of your potential.

"And I could say [we were] exhausted, Champions League, bad pitch [at Young Boys], the body suffered a different impact than a match in natural grass, not coming home after the match".

"But I think the happiness, the confidence, the self-esteem was what pushed him to play in our first match against Leicester nearly without training and he played a very good match". Jose Mourinho said in the pre-match press conference that he expects this to be a tough season and that's exactly what it's looking like. So yes, it's a mental situation.

"Of course, we had a better result and one point is better than zero. One team was coming to play the game of their lives, and another one was too relaxed".

United looked to have weathered a strong opening by Nuno Espirito Santo's team, most notably when keeper David De Gea made a spectacular save to keep out Willy Boly's goal-bound header from a Joao Moutinho corner.
