- Match Analysis
Under Jose Mourinho, Manchester United have progressed considerably since the past few seasons. They have already exceeded last season’s Premier League points total of 69, having amassed 71 with five games remaining.
But with the disappointing defeat against Sevilla in the Champions League and the points gap between them and leaders Manchester City shows United still have to improve. It is believed that they will spend again in the summer transfer window to add reinforcements.
But Mourinho has dismissed the speculations that they will spend heavily and will be responsible in the transfer market.
We are not going to spend more than we can. We are not going to do anything crazy,” Mourinho said to Sky Sports. “We are just trying to improve a little bit more. That’s what we are going to try.
“Everybody will try to improve – like we did from last season. Last season we finished sixth and this season we are going to finish, hopefully, second.
“Next season, we are going to try to improve, but let’s see what happens. Maybe also City will invest massively and they don’t let the others close the gap to them, I don’t know.
“But it is not about us and them, it is about us and them and Liverpool and Arsenal and Chelsea and Spurs. It is not City and United. It is about the six.”
