Jose Mourinho tries to explain why Newcastle beat Manchester United

Jose Mourinho admitted toothless Manchester United could have played for 10 hours without scoring in their surprise 1-0 defeat at Newcastle on Sunday.

The Red Devils suffered a second away defeat in a row in the Premier League thanks to a 65th-minute strike from Matt Ritchie, which extended Mourinho's miserable run at St James' Park to seven league games without a win.

"No problems", he told Sky Sports when asked about the France worldwide.

The goal certainly instilled a sense of urgency into United, with them dominating possession and Rafa Benitez's side soaking up pressure inside their own half.

"If I were managing him I'd let him off the lead, play him on the left of a midfield three and in areas where he could break forward and do damage, but when Manchester United don't have the ball he doesn't fully understand the game as a midfield player". "We got lucky with some shots, but we showed the character, the commitment and the desire today".

At the very least 18 killed in Hong Kong double-decker bus crash
Last September, three people were killed and 31 injured after a Citybus double-decker mounted a kerb in Sham Shui Po. Passengers said the driver was breaking the speed limit to make up for being behind schedule, according to Now News .

"I'm more happy with the points than which team they came against", he said.

Souness described Pogba as playing " like a schoolboy running after the ball in the playground " in a newspaper column, a week after the France worldwide was dropped to the bench for a 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town.

It had been thought by some that Pogba was suffering from an injury problem.

"There are so many awards - performance of the week, manager of the month and this and that - they should give one (to) the guy that behaves best on the touchline and it should be the fourth official to vote". "I wanted a better way [in midfield] against a side that was defending in a block".

"I was unlucky because they scored a goal in the seconds before that and then I'm going to face a different Newcastle".
