Mourinho Calls Pogba A 'Virus' As Feud Continues

Playing out a 2-2 draw, after being two goals down to Southampton, a single point leaves the 13-time Premier League champions slinking further away from the leading pack and there is now a very real concern that a top four position - and subsequent European qualification - may in fact evade them this season.

"We lost so many balls in midfield, so many balls in our transition to the last third that it was hard to have that continuity", he told BT Sport.

Mourinho will be without captain Ashley Young who picked up his fifth yellow card against Southampton. It was a ideal chance for making certain improvements from the match against Palace, but the Devils instead opted for all of the same mistakes they were making against Newcastle, Bournemouth and other teams.

"We don't have many mad dogs, the ones who bite all the ball all the team and press all the time, we don't have many with that spirit", he said. Some player with that kind of injury they don't play for two weeks, but Marcus I'm pretty sure he will be fine for the next one.

Mourinho used the rise of Tottenham as an example to explain why United can no longer raid their rivals as they did in the past for players like Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Carrick.

Mourinho's side were 2-0 down at St. Mary's within 20 minutes, although they did rescue the situation to go into halftime at 2-2.

"I thought he's been outstanding today", Owen told BT Sport.

"I don't see us going more than that".

"I would like to have Nemanja Vidic, but no Nemanja Vidic only Nemanja Matic - he's a midfield player".

Since Victor Lindelof is injured, Jones is the most likely to partner Smalling at centre-back, with Dalot finally making his league debut at right-back.

"It doesn't matter the system we play, it has to do with the characteristics of the players".

Two goals within 8 minutes from Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera, United pulled the scoreline level before the break.

A third consecutive Premier League game without a win leaves United trailing in City's wake.
