Overall, I am pleased with the players all round. "I play [Sergio] Romero, I play Daley Blind, I play [Eric] Bailly, I play Rashford, I play Martial, I play [Juan] Mata, but I have every player apart from [Marouane] Fellaini and [Romelu] Lukaku available and I don't go to the young players". Manchester United are the same.
Indeed, that defeat against West Ham is the only time Man Utd have lost in the last 23 occasions they've finished a top-flight season at home (W17 D5).
Mourinho is concerned with the mentality of the players against the smaller teams.
Sky pundit Jamie Redknapp didn't maintain again when discussing United's type of play: 'When it comes to ending second and have a look at cash they've spent it is exhausting to look at in the meanwhile. We wanted to win and we want to move up the league if we can, but it's a good extra point.
This will be the 500th Premier League game at Old Trafford - the ground has seen more goals than any other in the competition (1406).
Merson believes that a lack of confidence from United's attacking players is to blame, which he puts down to Mourinho.
"I think we do need to spend money in the summer".
"We had to get the players in order a little bit after we came in, and we have done that".
"If you told me that we lost five matches, and one was against Huddersfield, and one was against Manchester City and one was against Leicester City, and you lose in different circumstances, I say that's football, that's human beings playing football". However when the sport goes to 70, 75 minutes, you do not win, you do not lose, you do the job. I think it's normal that during the season, you have your low moments, but in a balanced way.
Jose Mourinho consideration about the player of not having a winning mentality is quite right.
Red Devils boss Mourinho, who praised the fight and determination shown by his players to secure the point needed to seal second place behind runaway champions Manchester City, looked to the post-match niceties between Noble and Pogba to sum up the earlier incident.
