Speaking to reporters after the match, Mourinho blamed the linesman and referee for the first goal.

He said:

“I’m always concerned when we don’t get the results we want.

“The first goal…It was an obvious situation like Man City last week but it is something I cannot control.

“The linesman, referee mistake is something I cannot control. In the second-half we were better, we were the team.

“Gomes made a great save and the luck is something we cannot control we can only control our mistakes.

“The second goal was an individual mistake… like the first goal from behind so there is another individual mistake.

“I cannot control, I cannot improve the referee and linesman and I cannot be critic. Luck – she will arrive.”
