Head coach of Manchester United Jose Mourinho is yet to get over his team scandalous 4-0 loss to his former side Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Mourinho who felt incredible defensive mistakes were to blame for his team thrashing faulted teen striker Marcus Rashford for not tracking back enough, leaving space for Victor Moses to run at the defence of the Red Devils.

Rashford was played from the left, same flank as Moses, who was thrice sent out on loan by Mourinho during his stay as manager of Chelsea, but has reinvented himself under new manager Antonio Conte as a wing back.

” After the first goal by Chelsea, we lost out tactical discipline. The goal came very early into the game. On the right Lingaard did enough to cover up for Valencia, but Rashford allowed Moses and Pedro to much space to put pressure on our defence” He said after the game.

” Rashford adjusted as the game went on but to be 2-0 up after 20-25 minutes, Chelsea were in control. It’s unfortunate we conceded two more in the second half”.
