Jose Mourinho: I have never seen my players have such a poor attitude - they should all explain themselves

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho launched a withering attack on his players after they were out-run and out-fought in a historic 2-1 defeat at Huddersfield Town. Mourinho said he cannot even remember a friendly match when his side’s attitude was so poor, adding that his entire squad should come forward and explain themselves. “I heard that Ander Herrera is in interviews and he is saying that the attitude and the desire was poor,” Mourinho said. “My God. When a player says that and feels that, I think they should all go to the press conference and explain why, because I can’t explain that.” Mourinho initially said that United had been affected by having to travel to play Benfica in the Champions League in midweek, while Huddersfield had a whole week to prepare for the game. But he then praised the attitude of Huddersfield, whose victory was their first over United for 65 years. “They played like I like, they played with everything they have, like it has to be,” Mourinho said. “They played with everything: aggression, desire, motivation, sacrifice. The team that deserved to win, won. Simple. Victor Lindelof had a terrible afternoon and was at fault for both of Huddersfield's goals Credit: REUTERS “The defeat was on attitude. When I lose matches I like to lose because the opponent was better than us, had more quality than us. When you lose matches because of attitude, that’s really bad.” Asked how concerned he was by his side’s performance, Mourinho said: “Of course it concerns me. It happened today, why can it not happen tomorrow?” Aaron Mooy gave Huddersfield the lead after a defensive mix-up involving Juan Mata and Victor Lindelof, before Laurent Depoitre scored a second shortly afterwards following another Lindelof mistake. Mourinho however refused to blame Lindelof for the result. “The mistakes are mistakes that belong to the context,” he said. “If you play an amazing game and then you lose because of the individual mistake, yes, you point the finger and say we lost because of a mistake. That was not the case.” United’s defeat, combined with Manchester City’s 3-0 win at home to Burnley, means Mourinho’s side have now fallen five points before the league leaders after nine games. Huddersfield players celebrated in style after the final whistle Credit: reuters For Huddersfield, this was a result that arrested a poor run of form in which they had scored only once in their last six matches. “This is a very, very proud moment,” said David Wagner, their manager. “We altogether know how huge this win is for Huddersfield Town. “I have not only enjoyed the result but I have also enjoyed the performances the players have shown. Not only today but especially today. “I said I cannot expect a result. I hope and I believed in a result but I did not expect it. What I expected was togetherness, spirit, attitude and that we make it uncomfortable for them. We created some good moments, we scored goals.” He added that it was an “extraordinary” performance. “It was a deserved result which we have seen today, even if they were probably not at their best,” Wagner said. “I am totally aware that this is a very special moment, and a huge result for small Huddersfield Town which is in the Premier League for the first time. I am aware of it, happy about it and proud of it. But, like always, we will celebrate this result then put it in the past.”

How Fabian Delph became Pep Guardiola's born-again full-back

Fabian Delph had sunk to sixth place in Pep Guardiola's midfield  pecking order and was seemingly on his way out of the Etihad, but he still believed chances to embed himself in the Manchester City team would come his way.  Into the third month of the season and thoughts of a summer move to Stoke, or indeed, anywhere else are long forgotten. Seven consecutive starts and a string of rave reviews show he has gained Guardiola's  trust in one of City's key positions.  It is not midfield, but left-back where the 27-year-old has become a regular fixture. The loss of new signing Benjamin Mendy, out until  spring with a knee injury, is not being felt as keenly as originally feared around east Manchester.  Delph was a bit-part player last season, making just seven appearances  in midfield, usually whenever Fernandinho or Yaya Toure were in need  of a rest. But having played full-back at previous clubs Leeds and  Aston Villa, the left-footer had another important string to his bow.  Delph had deputised ably for the injured Benjamin Mendy Credit: REUTERS City spent heavily on a new pair of full-backs in the summer to  improve an area of the team crucial to the Pep Guardiola game-plan.  Mendy and Kyle Walker brought immediate pace, physicality and  attacking threat and, since the former Monaco defender's incapacity,  Delph has maintained the impetus down City's left flank.  The big test was at Chelsea recently where Delph caught the eye with an outstanding display in City's notable 1-0 success.  This was all on show against a lively Burnley side, who showed plenty  of combative instinct and attacking intent at the Etihad. It was  Delph's crisp tackling deep in his own half that enabled City to  launch several counter-attacks, one of which, seconds before the  interval, almost led to Bernardo Silva doubling the home lead.  Guardiola also wants his full-backs tucking in, augmenting midfield,  which comes naturally to Delph, who has also developed an  understanding with his attacking team-mates. This weekend it was Leroy  Sane, who often found Delph popping up on his outside to lend an  option.  This is all good news for England, looking for defensive alternatives  and midfield anchormen for next year's World Cup. The fact that Delph  can do both to great effect means the chances of him adding  significantly to his nine caps is rising by the week.  The Verdict   Moment which changed the match Burnley provided stout opposition, in  stark contrast to several recent visitors to the Etihad, and it was  not until the 73rd minute, when Nicolas Otamendi powered home a  header, that City fans began to breathe easy.  Most influential player There is brilliance all around him but David  Silva remains at the hub of City's whirlwind of creativity.  Crowd rating A far closer contest than recent league  matches at the Etihad, at least until the closing stages, reflected in  good noise from the Burnley contingent. 6/10  Referee rating Burnley felt aggrieved that Roger East  awarded Bernardo Silva a penalty for what appeared to be the merest  touch by goalkeeper Nick Pope. 5/10 Match rating Decent contest with Burnley showing many  good things but City were once again devastatingly effective. 6/10
