I knew we'd be in trouble with Jones on penalties – Mourinho

"I repeated what I said in the last match, that their [the opponent's] dressing room was one with belief, because it [the match] was open and they played quite well," Mourinho told Sky Sports.
"We needed to go and kill the game, which we didn't. We couldn't be dominant at the beginning of the second half and only after the equaliser, we had that reaction, which I don't like.
"I prefer to be proactive, but then we go for it only after the 1-1 and after the red card, we are in a little difficulty.
"With one less [player] there was a reaction of pride, of a group that didn't want to lose and tried until the last second.
"Then penalties come and someone has to miss. When I saw [the penalties] going after the sixth, seventh [takers], I knew that we were going to be in trouble with Jones, with Eric. I knew we'd be in trouble again."
A prickly Mourinho then took offence to his interviewer suggesting he had been critical of United.
"You think I criticise? I don't think so," Mourinho said. "That's not criticising the team, I belong to the team.
"I don't think you are correct when you say I'm criticising. Do you want me to analyse or go away?
"You want me to say we play a phenomenal match? The truth is the opponent in the second half started better than us and we weren't able to match that intensity."
