Mourinho: We have to focus
Jose Mourinho has stressed that his team have to look forward and redouble their focus as they look to counter the disappointment of last weekend’s 3-2 reverse at Brighton.
“Nobody has been happy, obviously,”admitted the boss.
“They have enough experience to know that, in football, you cannot look back on good or bad results – you always have to look to the next one. That’s our life. I’m really happy with the work we’ve done in the week and the players’ commitment, and I look forward to the [Tottenham] game.
“It’s always difficult after a match you lose. Especially for people who really care about the job and being football professionals.
“But after that, you think about the next match – you do the same when you win. When you win, you have to move on and you have to focus on what’s next. Imagine when you lose? You have to do even more.”
“You have to play against 19 opponents at Old Trafford and 19 opponents away. You have to play against everyone. I don’t know when is the right time. The time is now, the fixtures were decided this way and we have to play Tottenham Hotspur in the second match at Old Trafford before we go away twice in a row against Burnley and Watford. This is what it is and, of course, it’s a difficult match against a team that last season finished in the top four, so [it’s a] difficult match.”

“It’s to play well and win and not make mistakes,”said the boss.
“Play well and win - that’s what we want.”
