Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has admitted that the club’s form isn’t good enough and that they ‘can do better’.
Mourinho declined providing any explanation for United’s poor form after admitting there were “many factors” behind it.
Asked about the importance of picking up all three points in their game against Newcastle on Saturday, the Portuguese said:
“Very important. I know we are in the beginning of October and you look to tables all around Europe and in many of the leagues the tables in September, October. They don’t reflect what is going to happen in a few months later or even in the end of the season.
“We are in a position that we can do much better than that and to do that we need points. Points that we lost especially in the last two Premier League matches with one point out of six.
“We know that to improve that position we need to win these three points. But we know that our opponent for different reasons also need the points.”
“[We have] only one defeat at home all season, only one defeat in the last seven matches. So it is important for us to try and win this match on Saturday.”
