Jose Mourinho has taken aim at former side Chelsea in wake of his side’s 2-0 victory over Watford this afternoon, report 101greatgoals.
Man United took all three points from their clash with midtablers Watford thanks to goals from Juan Mata and Anthony Martial. It was a victory that moved them up to fifth place, but they remain 11 points behind leaders Chelsea, who face Burnley on Sunday.
Despite the considerable deficit, Mourinho has still taken every opportunity to criticise his former employers. Today he took aim at the Blues once more.
Mourinho? Bitter? Surely not? 101greatgoals quote Mourinho, who is uncharacteristically hostile when discussing Antonio Conte’s side: “Chelsea are very good defensive team. They defend very well and with lots of players and I think in this situation a very defensive team wins the title with counterattack goals and set pieces goals so I don’t think they will let it slip but football is football.”
The Special One is spot on when branding Chelsea a defensive side. It’s not as though they have scored 13 more Premier League goals Man United this season, or have only scored three less than the league’s top scorers Arsenal. Unquestionable intelligence fro Mourinho, as always.
