Jose Mourinho: I have never seen my players have such a poor attitude - they should all explain themselves

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho launched a withering attack on his players after they were out-run and out-fought in a historic 2-1 defeat at Huddersfield Town. Mourinho said he cannot even remember a friendly match when his side’s attitude was so poor, adding that his entire squad should come forward and explain themselves. “I heard that Ander Herrera is in interviews and he is saying that the attitude and the desire was poor,” Mourinho said. “My God. When a player says that and feels that, I think they should all go to the press conference and explain why, because I can’t explain that.” Mourinho initially said that United had been affected by having to travel to play Benfica in the Champions League in midweek, while Huddersfield had a whole week to prepare for the game. But he then praised the attitude of Huddersfield, whose victory was their first over United for 65 years. “They played like I like, they played with everything they have, like it has to be,” Mourinho said. “They played with everything: aggression, desire, motivation, sacrifice. The team that deserved to win, won. Simple. Victor Lindelof had a terrible afternoon and was at fault for both of Huddersfield's goals Credit: REUTERS “The defeat was on attitude. When I lose matches I like to lose because the opponent was better than us, had more quality than us. When you lose matches because of attitude, that’s really bad.” Asked how concerned he was by his side’s performance, Mourinho said: “Of course it concerns me. It happened today, why can it not happen tomorrow?” Aaron Mooy gave Huddersfield the lead after a defensive mix-up involving Juan Mata and Victor Lindelof, before Laurent Depoitre scored a second shortly afterwards following another Lindelof mistake. Mourinho however refused to blame Lindelof for the result. “The mistakes are mistakes that belong to the context,” he said. “If you play an amazing game and then you lose because of the individual mistake, yes, you point the finger and say we lost because of a mistake. That was not the case.” United’s defeat, combined with Manchester City’s 3-0 win at home to Burnley, means Mourinho’s side have now fallen five points before the league leaders after nine games. Huddersfield players celebrated in style after the final whistle Credit: reuters For Huddersfield, this was a result that arrested a poor run of form in which they had scored only once in their last six matches. “This is a very, very proud moment,” said David Wagner, their manager. “We altogether know how huge this win is for Huddersfield Town. “I have not only enjoyed the result but I have also enjoyed the performances the players have shown. Not only today but especially today. “I said I cannot expect a result. I hope and I believed in a result but I did not expect it. What I expected was togetherness, spirit, attitude and that we make it uncomfortable for them. We created some good moments, we scored goals.” He added that it was an “extraordinary” performance. “It was a deserved result which we have seen today, even if they were probably not at their best,” Wagner said. “I am totally aware that this is a very special moment, and a huge result for small Huddersfield Town which is in the Premier League for the first time. I am aware of it, happy about it and proud of it. But, like always, we will celebrate this result then put it in the past.”

In-form Tyrrell Hatton to make Jonathan Bell his permanent caddie as he eyes Ryder Cup place in 2018

Tyrrell Hatton is set to appoint best friend Jonathan Bell as his caddie on a permanent basis as he fixes his sights on a boyhood dream double in the final four weeks of this season. The 26-year-old initially asked Bell - a fellow pro who he has known since they were seven years old - to fill in until the end of the campaign, after parting ways with Chris Rice. Bell agreed on the understanding that he would return to the game’s mini-leagues next year to try to plot his own way to the top. But the relationship has turned out to be such a staggering success that both have been forced to alter their plans. It is fair to say that both now believe neither could afford to do without the other. Hatton had missed six out of seven cuts when he was joined by Bell at the European Masters six weeks ago. That week in Swiss mountains, Hatton left his form behind with a third place. In his next event, the British Masters, Hatton came eighth and then followed this up with back-to-back wins at the Dunhill Links and last weekend’s Italian Open. In these four tournaments together, Hatton has re-entered the world’s top 20 and collected more than more than £1.6m. Bell’s cut will have topped £150,000 and for a man who was working as a part-time gardener when Hatton called, this obviously constitutes ridiculous money. Understandably, Bell is ready to put his own golf career on hold for another year if and when Hatton makes the partnership official. “If the opportunity arose I would not turn it down,” Bell said. After enjoying a week off, Hatton plays in the HSBC WGC Champions in Shanghai knowing that another win would all but confirm his Ryder Cup debut next year as well as drive him ever deeper into contention for the Race to Dubai order of merit title. Hatton claimed victory at the Italian Open Credit: GETTY IMAGES After China, there are three more weeks to go with Hatton playing in Turkey, Sun City and the finale in Dubai as he attempts to chase down the leader Tommy Fleetwood. Fleetwood started the trend to employ best friends as caddies, linking up with Ian Finnis last year and rising from outside the world’s top 150 into the top 20. Since then, Rory McIlroy turned to his closest compadre Harry Diamond after dismissing JP Fitzgerald, while Jason Day replaced Col Swatton, his long-time coach who also acted as a bagman, with Luke Reardon, his former room-mate at college. “They are all great players and maybe they have realised that if you take care of yourself emotionally and have a good time then the golf can take care of itself,’ Bell told National Club Golfer. “There is nothing worse than not getting on well with someone and spending all day with them. If he caddied for me he would be the same as I am with him. At the end of the day we just want the best for each other.” Hatton is in fifth place on the money list with another Englishman in Ross Fisher in fourth, and Jon Rahm and Sergio Garcia in third and second respectively. Both the Spaniards have been playing in the Andalucia Masters at Valderrama, although mRah missed the cut on Friday. However, going into the final round of the event his charitable foundation promotes, Garcia is one shot ahead and looking to close to within 780,000 points of Fleetwood. Garcia’s three-under 68 to move to eight-under was anything but uneventful, featuring six birdies, three bogeys and nine pars. Daniel Brooks, the 30-year-old Englishman, is the nearest pursuer after a 64 containing nine birdies, while the Dutchman Joost Luiten is one further back in third with Wales’s Jamie Donaldson in a tie fourth with the Scot Jamieson on five-under following a 68 and 71 respectively.

Manchester City 3 Burnley 0: Premier League leaders show patience to break Clarets' resolve

There was more than a whiff of controversy about the penalty that brought up an historic goal for Sergio Aguero but the record books will not list Burnley’s grievances, as legitimate as they may have been. They will only tell the story of how Aguero claimed his 177th goal in Manchester City colours to equal Eric Brook’s all-time scoring record and set his side on course for a hard fought victory that, in itself, was record setting. This was the first time in a single season that City have won 11 consecutive matches, and with rivals Manchester United suffering a shock defeat at Huddersfield, allowed Pep Guardiola’s side to open up a five point gap at the top of the Premier League table. But don’t be fooled too much by the scoreline. This was not another case of Guardiola’s City slickers steam-rollering an opponent. Burnley gave City as tough a time as they have probably had this term up until the moment when Nicolas Otamendi headed home Leroy Sane’s goal 17 minutes from time to give the league leaders the comfort of a two-goal cushion. Burnley had expended so much energy staying firmly in this game that the goal, from a set piece of all things, was a crushing blow and within two minutes, Sean Dyche’s deflated team had conceded again courtesy of a smart finish from Sane. And that’s what City do so well. They take games away from teams in almost the blink of an eye. That the foundations for the win lay in a contentious refereeing decision will have hurt Dyche and his players, though. You need some luck at the Etihad and they did not get it. Man City 2 - 0 Burnley (Nicolás Otamendi, 73 min) It was easy to understand why referee Roger East awarded the penalty. From his view, and at speed, it looks very much like Nick Pope brings down Bernardo Silva. Watch it again, though, and Bernardo plants his foot under the Burnley goalkeeper and then immediately takes his tumble. If it was a dive, it was not of the clear cut variety but the Portugal playmaker went to ground very easily and the anger and frustration felt by Burnley’s players was entirely understandable. Once East had pointed to the spot, James Tarkowski wasted no time rushing over to Bernardo to give his opponent both barrels, the trigger for the ensuing melee. Tarkowski and Leroy Sane were both booked for their shoving match and it was some time before order was restored and Aguero popped up to score his record-breaking penalty. The Argentine had actually missed a penalty against Shakhtar Donetsk last month that would have seen him equal the record before now but he made no mistake this time around. Brook’s record had stood for 78 years and he played 494 games for City. This was only Aguero’s 262nd game for City and you can be pretty sure there will be plenty more goals to come. Still, the goal would have been harsh on Burnley even if they had not equipped themselves so well for that first half hour. Stoke and Napoli had both been pulled apart in that time in City’s last two outings here but Burnley’s game plan was robust and effective. It was not simply a case of defending on the edge of their 18-yard box, either. They were compact, yes, but there was pressure from the front and an eagerness to win the ball back as high up as possible and even play a bit themselves. It was another good day at the office for Pep Guardiola Credit: PA Dyche had clearly resolved that it was imperative his side also asked questions of City’s defence. It was a shame they lost Chris Wood to injury so early on because in the 20 minutes the New Zealand striker was on the field he showed himself to be a handful. When Jack Cork launched a clearance forward, it was Wood’s sheer determination that saw him muscle his way through City’s defence. First he knocked Kyle Walker out of the way, then he bundled his way past Nicolas Otamendi. Ederson was quick off his line, as he often is, but the City goalkeeper spilled the ball was then fortunate to benefit from East’s leniency when Scott Arfield challenged for the loose ball. It looked a 50-50 challenge that Arfield won but East felt the Burnley midfielder had impeded Ederson and awarded a free-kick in City’s favour, much to Dyche’s dismay. In truth, Wood’s replacement, Ashley Barnes, was just as willing to hold the ball up and throw his weight around and, behind him, the midfield five ran themselves into the ground while the defence chucked their bodies – and heads – in the way of just about everything that came their way. No team in Europe has blocked more shots than Burnley and their spirit was embodied late in the first half when the excellent Tarkowski took Bernardo’s shot full in the face.  City are always going to create chances, though, and Burnley were grateful Bernardo directed a first time shot too close to Pope after a delightful shuffle of the feet from Sane took him round Tarkowski before he pulled the ball back for his team-mate. Man City 3 - 0 Burnley (Leroy Sané, 75 min) Something unusual happened soon after. De Bruyne misplaced a pass, and the Belgian almost cost his team later in the half when he was caught trying to overplay on the edge of City’s penalty area from Ederson’s pass. Cork intercepted and Barnes laid the ball off for Arfield but his shot was deflected wide. In the second half, Tarkowski failed to get a clean connection on a header from a corner by Robbie Brady. By contrast, Otamendi did enough with his, rising above Ben Mee to head home Sane’s corner in between the legs of Steven Defour on the goalline. Two quickly became three. Walker’s throw-in was flicked on by Aguero to De Bruyne, who had been quiet by his standards but still had the vision to release Sane with a perfectly weighted pass. The finish was unstoppable. And that is exactly what City are at the moment. 4:56PM Full time: Stoke 1-2 Bournemouth The referee has seen enough at bet365 Stadium and blows the final whistle. 4:55PM Average touch positions (full time) Average touch positions (full time) 4:55PM Full time: Man City 3-0 Burnley The referee has seen enough at Etihad Stadium and blows the final whistle. 4:55PM Average touch positions (full time) Average touch positions (full time) 4:55PM Full time: Newcastle 1-0 Crystal Palace The final whistle blows at St. James' Park. 4:54PM Average touch positions (full time) Average touch positions (full time) 4:54PM One-way traffic at Etihad Stadium It's been all Man City, with the hosts racking up 15 shots so far - Burnley have managed just five in reply.

But the City boss is convinced his side are fully equipped to ensure any downturn can be overcome. City have made an exhilarating start to the season and top the Premier League with 22 points from a possible 24, scoring 29 goals in their eight games. Recent weeks have seen them rack up big wins against Liverpool (5-0), Watford (6-0), Crystal Palace (5-0) and Stoke (7-2). In addition they also beat champions Chelsea last month and have opened their Champions League campaign with three wins from three. The plaudits are pouring in but Guardiola accepts his team will come unstuck at some point. "That's going to happen," he said. "We are in October. We cannot expect to finish the season like we have done in the last month when we won all the games. It's impossible in football in the high level. "But I want to see how we are going to react in that moment when we drop points. "We will see how strong we are because teams always show in the bad moments. "I'm optimistic because the way we reacted at 3-2 against Stoke was so good."
