Man Utd 0-0 West Brom: Five things we learned

Share

Speaking after the game, Mourinho nailed his analysis by saying that United's six defensive players were "phenomenal with their attitude", while their four attacking players "could not score a goal".

He's started just 27 Premier League games for United over the last three seasons after he endured a double leg break in September 2015 just as he was displaying his best performances in a United shirt.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis hailed his side's Premier League draw away to Manchester United on Saturday as a "magnificent" point. There are lovely places to live and to play. "We pay with two more points [dropped] for that".

He added: "Many people, especially in some positions, can not play and I would prefer to give a little rest to courageous guys like Antonio [Valencia] and Eric [Bailly], who were playing for the national teams and travelling here to play again". As long as Jose Mourinho can keep his team focused, though, this is going to be a very hard match for West Bromwich to get an upset.

They will be looking to make gains on teams around them with a win.

Still, even coach Frank Martin seemed befuddled at what was going on with the Southeastern Conference player of the year. FIRST TO 80: The North Carolina-Oregon game should be one where both teams try and get out and run, a lot.

United's first half domination was near total although, for all their possession, the home side failed to force goalkeeper Ben Foster into a noteworthy save.

"If the first thing you think is where you're going to live, well, think Los Angeles". Before, we play Anderlecht and after, we play Anderlecht.

"I can smile if I lose, if I win, if I draw".

"If you compare our situation with our opponents, West Bromwich Albion, only one player on global duty".

"You can deal with it but too many draws at home".

The S&P 500 index showed seven 52-week highs and six lows, while the Nasdaq recorded 28 new highs and 43 new lows. For the day, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 20659.32 for a loss of -42.18 points or -0.20%.

"Today we didn't do that".

"And you see always the same people, always the same guys - always the same guys in front of the train pulling the train, so it's disappointing because it's one more draw".

The result is a blow for United's chances of finishing in the top four, as the team has a tricky fixture list to end the season, with UEFA Europa League fixtures also taking place. They've been a very inconsistent team this season, but when they're motivated and playing well, they have the ability to beat any team in the league.

The Baggies are enjoying one of their best Premier League seasons and now sit eighth in the table, having surpassed the 40-point mark that is typically seen as the benchmark to secure survival.

But his side are still four points short of the fourth Champions League spot, having won only four and drawn eight of their last 12 league games at Old Trafford.
