Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has disclosed that his team are in a false position as far as the English Premier League table is concerned.
The Red Devils have hugely underperformed this season under the former Real Madrid, Inter Milan, FC Porto and Chelsea boss. They are presently in 6th spot on 21 points with just 5 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses from the opening 14 games of the season in addition to the fact that it is their worst point tally since the 2000/01 season.
With their present point tally, the Old Trafford club are a massive 13 points adrift of league leaders Chelsea and 9 points off Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the race for UEFA Champions League qualification.
Speaking on his team’s faltering position, before the 1-1 away draw at Everton, Mourinho said: “Yes, I think we are in a false position. We have lost eight points at home that we did not deserve to lose and, if we had won those games, I think we would be third.”
“But the reality of football is the result after 90 minutes and it doesn’t matter if you were unlucky, doesn’t matter if the referee gave a wrong decision against us, doesn’t matter if the keeper made a mistake.
“What does matter is the result that gives us a number of points and where we are in the table.” he concluded.
