"It's very difficult for us, we dominated the possession and had maybe three or four chances in the match, but that's not enough when you've got that kind of possession. If anything, our play in the last third was a bit scrappy with overhead crosses. We didn't make full use of the crossing positions we were in. But it was a good performance by us and we worked really hard. Our passing was really good at times. We can consider ourselves a bit unlucky."

Mourinho says United deserved a point

"I don't need anybody to tell me that, I think I can make my own judgement and I think we were a bit unlucky and maybe on another day... It was the same last year, we had a lot of possesion last year too and lost from a penalty kick so it's not been a good ground for us in the past two seasons."

Looking good for the future

"We're confident about the ability of the team and we thought that before the game and there's no reason to think any differently after the game."
