Tottenham fell to a 3-1 defeat to Manchester United in their Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon. United thought they had taken the lead in the 33rd minute. However, Edinson Cavani’s goal was ruled out by VAR due to Scott McTominay’s ‘foul’ on Son Heung-min.
Son then scored just before half-time. But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side produced a brilliant fightback in the second 45 minutes. Goals from Fred, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood gave United all three points.
The Portuguese manager was not happy in his post-match interview and he declared that his side were unlucky to have come away with no points.
“My opinion was we didn’t deserve this result at all but we lost against a very good team,” he told Sky Sports.
Mourinho was also unhappy that Paul Pogba was not given a first-half red card. Journalist asked Mourinho whether he thought Tottenham were fortunate that Cavani’s strike was ruled out by VAR.
“I think we were unlucky because Pogba should get a red card for an elbow on Serge Aurier,” he responded. “If you want to speak about VAR, we have to go deeper than that.”
