This debut season of Jose Mourinho as the head coach of Manchester United is certainly not going how the Portuguese manager wanted it to, as the Red Devils are not going to become the new champions of England and will not be securing the 2nd spot either as the table toppers Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are just too far ahead.
Manchester United was also knocked out of the FA Cup competition after losing against Chelsea in the quarter-finals as they faced off on March 13.
Even though Jose Mourinho has lifted the FA Community Shield and the EFL Cup in his 1st season in charge of Manchester United, this season is still widely considered to be an underwhelming one as the bigger competitions such as the Premier League and the FA Cup has been a completely different story.
Paul Pogba has been a huge disappointment as the French youngster has only scored 4 league goals in 29 Premier League appearances which is extremely unsatisfying for a player that cost Manchester United £89.3 million and ZlatanIbrahimovic picked up an injury that will be leaving him out of the pitch for 8 months.
The absence of Ibrahimovic is being felt by Manchester United as they have struggled trying to score goals on a consistent basis ever since the Swedish attacker sustained his injury on April 20.
On May 7, Arsenal hosted Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium and the host won 2-0. This was the 1st victory that Arsene Wenger has managed to secure in 14 previous competitive fixtures and Jose Mourinho had a few things to say following this defeat to Arsenal.
‘’The Arsenal fans they are happy, I’m happy for them. It’s the first time I leave Highbury or the Emirates and they are happy. It’s the first time. I left Highbury they were crying, I left Emirates they were crying.They were walking in the street with their heads low. So finally today they sing, it’s nice for them’’ Jose Mourinho said.
