United dominated the match from start to finish as the Lilly Whites struggled to penetrate their opponent's defense, not until their first shot on target that resulted in a goal.

“I tried to fight that state of mind, I tried to tell them exactly the way United approach these matches at home - the strong starts, running, pressing, the morale of the supporters.

“When United face the big teams, people think it will be more difficult, as the responsibility changes, but they feel more comfortable.

“We knew what we had to do, but after one minute of the second half, we conceded a goal. United will be happy with the points and overall they deserve it.

"We only have ourselves to blame,” Mourinho said.
