EPL aftermath: 'Childish' Manchester United slammed by Jose Mourinho

  • Burnley denied famous Man Utd victory by stoppage-time equaliser

It was the second time in a week that United have conceded a goal in injury time, losing 2-1 to Championship side Bristol City in the EFL Cup quarter-finals.

"It's the first Christmas without my father and I think that's the most hard one", he said.

United are now 13 points adrift of City and Mourinho was furious with his team's late defensive blunder and a series of woeful finishes when chances arose to kill the game.

"You have to keep going".

"You have to keep going and especially in Christmas time", Mata said.

"For us to score two goals we need to play in their half for 45 minutes, with only one defender".

"If we instead of drawing win at the end, we would have been saying that it was a fantastic game, that we came back and we did the most hard thing which is to score twice after they went ahead".

Mata put United 2-1 ahead with a superbly-taken free-kick and revealed afterwards that his goal celebration was a dedication to Indian children with whom his charitable foundation Common Goal works.

"We were punished by our mistakes", Mourinho told.

With the early goal in the second-half, United had their tails up and buoyed by the home support, bombarded the Burnley box with a deluge of crosses.

Eric Bailly is a long-term absentee while Michael Carrick, Antonio Valencia and Marouane Fellaini have been ruled out of the holiday games.

Eric Bailly is sidelined after ankle surgery and an unspecified injury meant versatile full-back Matteo Darmian missed the draw at Leicester, where Chris Smalling received a knock late in proceedings.

Premier League giants Manchester United were given an almighty scare by Burnley on Tuesday night as the Red Devils were forced to dig deep to secure a 2-2 draw with the Clarets at Old Trafford.

"Mourinho is a victor and he hates the fact he's not top of the league, hates the fact he's not in the league cup, hates the fact he doesn't believe he's really got a squad capable of winning the Champions League or Premier League and he believes at Manchester United that should be a given, that Manchester United should always be competing".

And now, they face Burnley who were thrashed 0-3 by Tottenham Hotspur also in the weekend. "Whichever team we put out there, we've always been competitive".

"We're happy with the performance".
