Jose Mourinho has warned his Manchester United players to cut out the mistakes when they host Tottenham Hotspur in the top flight on Monday night.

The Red Devils head into the clash with the Lilywhites looking to get back to winning ways in the top flight after they suffered a surprise defeat by Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend.

Manchester United are aiming to be one of the main challengers for the Premier League title this season after they ended up in second place in the table last term and without a trophy.

Mourinho’s men are now preparing to host Spurs at Old Trafford as they look to get their campaign back on track and be one of the main challengers for the title.

However, Mourinho has conceded that the Red Devils will have to step their game up from their last performance if they want to be able to challenge for the title this season.

Speaking in an interview with MUTV, Mourinho said: “Just looking at Leicester and Brighton – against Leicester we didn’t make mistakes and we played well, we won.

“Against Brighton, we made mistakes and we paid for the mistakes and we lost.

“I think you look at football in a pragmatic way – normally you get what you deserve, so if you want to win against a big team, you cannot make mistakes.”

Manchester United have not won the Premier League title since their famous final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.
