Saturday clash with Arsenal saw Mourinho side drop two points in the Premier League as Giroud powered home a head to deny Man United all three points after Juan Mata had put the Red Devils ahead earlier on.
Mourinho had a good start to life at Old Trafford but the club has been struggling to record back to back wins in recent times and Ray Wilkins a former player with 160 appearances for the Red Devils has doubts about Mourinho chances of winning the Premier League with United this term.
The pundit had this to say on Sky Sports: “I don’t think they’re capable of winning the title this season,”
“But they certainly have to finish in the top four. They have to”
“The Champions League without Manchester United is a bit like China without rice.
“It needs United and they are desperate to be back in it.”
Mourinho has been looking for the perfect system to suit his team and has seen club captain reduced to a bench role, he has seen some actions in recent games though. New signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan bench role is one of the subjects of speculation in a team going through transition of the post Ferguson Era.
Manchester United is 9points behind league leaders Chelsea and will be playing host to Feyenoord in the Europa League on Thursday.
