Asked if his players needed to improve their attitude, he replied: "Come on, this is something you learn when you are a kid in the academy, you don't need experiences at the highest level to learn that".

"That's a basic law of football, you have to play with the maximum of your potential, with the maximum of your focus".

That the season follows a World Cup also adds to the challenge, a fact epitomised by Tottenham - the club with the most semi-finalists - losing three successive games since comprehensively winning at Old Trafford. Then we tried to defend a bit more against the counter-attack. They picked up just one point. "But I did not like my team".

"They were in the game from the first minute". Mourinho has preferred Alexis Sanchez over Martial, but Sanchez has only been a pale shadow of the player he was with Arsenal and Mourinho has to make a decision pretty quickly.

"The attitude made the difference". 'I'm not the manager, I can not say that, but obviously we should show more options, ' he added. "It's hard to win matches when you're not there".

"I could say we were exhausted, Champions League, bad pitch [against Young Boys], the body suffers the different impact on an artificial rather than actual grass, not coming home after the match". On the day that the legendary manager returned to Old Trafford for the first time since life-saving brain surgery in May on a wave of emotion, the team once again suffered by comparison with his own. So yes, it's a mental situation.


"One team came as if their lives depended on it and one team was too relaxed", he said at his post-match press conference.

For large swathes of the match on Saturday, Wolves were the better side, and were more than good value for their point, handed to them after Joao Moutinho cancelled out Fred's opener for United.

"I thought it was a point deserved, but we had the chances that showed with better decisions we could have won", he said. "Knowing that when you have the ball you have to produce chances and we did that". Let us know what you think by leaving a comment.

The Spanish youngster has scored one goal in 131 minutes of Premier League football for Wolves so far this season, according to WhoScored.

"I think the happiness, the confidence, the self-esteem was what pushed him to play the first match nearly without training against Leicester and played a very good match".
