Mourinho: 'We have to improve'


Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has conceded his side must improve after another poor performance against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Mourinho's team have been regularly criticised this season for thier alleged conservative tactics, and they did little to dispel that at Selhurst Park.

"[It's] a bad point. When the objective is to chase the top four and to close step by step the distance to these teams and you start that period of eight Premier League matches until the end of December, it's obviously a bad start," Mourinho said to 'Sky Sports'.

"I give them credit, obviously. But I don't want to try to show we draw because they were phenomenal. I praise them. They were defensively very well organised.

"The goalkeeper made a couple of fantastic saves, they were always waiting for a little chance to be dangerous in counter-attack. They played their game and they played well.

"We need to improve of course, I am disappointed with the performance. Again, you are right, it is not nice just to blame the team that is favourite in the game for not winning, it is also football to praise the opponent that came here and gave everything for that point. But we obviously have to do better. "
