Jose Mourinho ripped into his Manchester United flops on Sunday as they slumped to their third defeat in just eight days.
The United manager accused his players of failing to learn the lessons of the Manchester derby defeat and singled out left back Luke Shaw for particular criticism over his role in Camilo Zuniga’s crucial second goal.
‘I knew I had a task,’ said Mourinho, who has not suffered three successive competitive defeats since his days as Porto manager in 2002, ‘But the first Man City goal and this second goal, you can find incredible similarity.

‘Kolarov has the ball in a difficult situation in the corner and my player instead of going up and pressing decides to give him space.

‘This is a tactical but also a mental attitude. In a couple of weeks, everything like this becomes perfect. That’s my job.’
Mourinho was also critical of his side’s first half performance, admitting that he expected a better response after back to back defeats by Manchester City and Feyenoord in the Europa League last Thursday.
