Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has claimed: Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool not better than us

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has claimed his side would have been in the top three on the Premier League table if they had won the games they drew, as he also claims the teams in the top four are not better than his.

United face a crucial game against Tottenham and look set for another season outside the top four which will be a third in four years since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

They have been in inconsistent form, as they have failed to win four of their last five matches in the league which has seen them cut adrift from the title race. But Mourinho believes their position in sixth place does not represent a true picture of the table, suggesting that several of the five teams above them do not deserve to be there.

“I find it unfair, I find that we should have much more points than we have because you look at the table and it looks like other teams are better than us which, in my opinion, is not true,” he told Sky Sports.

“So many draws that we deserve victories. If you could transform these draws into victories we would be very close to the top of the league, in between the top three or top four so I find more unfair but there is only one way – keep working.”

Mourinho also says he is happy with the way his team are playing, as he claims they are performing above his original expectations. 

“In terms of the quality of our game and the organisation of our football I think we are above what I would expect. The evolution was really good.

“In terms of results I am used to different results. I am used to a different kind of profile as a team, the team that scores one goal and doesn’t concede, the team that is very efficient and not in need of so much ball possession and control to have opportunities to score and score.

“I am just a bit disappointed with that because I see teams in the Premier League – they are not comparable to us in terms of the quality of their game and they have much more points than us.”
