Gary Neville: This is what Jose Mourinho will be pondering about Man United
The Manchester United legend says Jose Mourinho is struggling to get the Red Devils over the line in Premier League games
Gary Neville says Jose Mourinho will be wondering how to get Manchester United over the line in tight Premier League games.
The Red Devils appeared to be heading for successive Premier League victories on Saturday afternoon thanks to Juan Mata’s 69th-minute opener.
However, Arsenal substitute Olivier Giroud levelled in the 90th minute to secure a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford for Arsene Wenger’s side.
Mourinho’s men are in sixth place in the Premier League table and nine points adrift of leaders Chelsea after 12 top-flight games.
The Red Devils have drawn with Stoke City, promoted side Burnley and title rivals Arsenal in their last three Premier League fixtures at Old Trafford.
Former Manchester United defender Neville believes Mourinho will be frustrated with his players’ failure to see out a 1-0 win against the north London club.
Neville told the Gary Neville podcast: “Manchester United will be happy with their performance but they just can’t get over the line.
“It is something that Jose Mourinho will be pondering. He will be wondering how he corrects it.”
Manchester United finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last season under Louis van Gaal.
Mourinho’s side will host struggling West Ham United in their next top-flight fixture on Sunday evening.
