Jose Mourinho after 'beautiful' Newcastle United defeat

Jose Mourinho after 'beautiful' Newcastle United defeat

A goal from Matt Ritchie gave Newcastle United a 1-0 win over Jose Mourinho's side at St James's Park yesterday.

Jose Mourinho praised the manner of Newcastle's unlikely Premier League victory over Manchester United as "a handsome thing".

Dubravka also made a vital stop in the opening 45 minutes after United hit Newcastle on the break when Nemanja Matic sent Martial clean through on goal. They showed everything a manager likes to see in this game.

"I can imagine that [Rafael] Benitez is more than pleased with the efforts of his players. The way they fought for every last thing is a attractive thing". Were they lucky? Yes, they were but sometimes you make your own luck with your state of mind.

Speaking about the return of Paul Pogba in the United starting eleven, Mourinho said that there were no problems with the former Juventus player's fitness. "I know Benítez loves football and I know he's very, very happy".

"A little bit like the first goal against Tottenham, I could complain that the goal is illegal that [Harry] Kane was already 10 metres inside our half, but I think it's more logical to complain about our mistake in the long ball".

'I was unlucky because they scored in the seconds before that, and then I'm going to face a different Newcastle, a Newcastle that in that moment the only think is to defend'.

One of that pair was Pogba.

He added during his post-match press conference: "I think first of all that the Newcastle United players and obviously staff, they gave what they have and what they don't have and I think that's a handsome thing in football".

Benítez said: "Hopefully I'll have bigger wins than this one with Newcastle".

With City's rampant success followed by United's frustrating away loss to New Castle, Guardiola men only need 6 more wins to secure this season's Premier League title.
