Three things we learned from Hull City v Manchester United

Mourinho’s in denial

The Manchester United manager suggested his side were “still unbeaten” after refusing to recognise Hull’s penalty on the night.

Despite winning the two-legged tie overall, the ‘Special One’ was not impressed with referee Jon Moss’ decision to award The Tigers a first-half penalty for Rojo’s tug on Maguire.

Speaking after the match, Mourinho said, “We didn’t lose. It was 1-1. I only saw two goals.

“I saw a Pogba goal and their goal, a fantastic goal. It was 1-1, we are still unbeaten. I think 18 matches unbeaten is amazing.”

He added, “I didn’t see Hull’s first goal. We celebrate, we are in the final. I don’t want to speak about the penalty or the performance.

“The game was in our pocket, under our control, and something happened to open the game.

“The game was dead. The game was what we wanted it to be. I don’t want to say anything else, it is enough.

“I am calm. I behaved on the bench. No sending off, no punishment, so no more words.”

Okay Jose! Whatever you say.
