Jose Mourinho hits back with brilliant response after being asked about Manchester United’s title chances

JOSE MOURINHO hit back with a brilliant response after Manchester United’s title chances were questioned.

His side are already 12 points behind leaders Manchester City after just 12 games and a first Premier League title since 2013 looks increasingly unlikely for the Old Trafford club.

City have taken 32 points from a possible 36 this season while Manchester United have 20 points after suffering four defeats already.

It means United are as far away from the reigning champions as they are from relegation-threatened Cardiff who sit in the bottom three on eight points.

Mourinho, 55, was asked if the title was already over for his side with reference made to the Cardiff stat.

But The Special One simply said: “I think we are not going to be relegated.”

The journalist replied: “I agree,” before trying to ask a follow-up question on United’s defence.

Mourinho took objection to this, though, and interrupted: “Two questions for the same one?” before the media officer asked to move on.

United were dominated at the Etihad yesterday as Manchester City won 3-1.

David Silva opened the scoring before Sergio Aguero and Riyad Mahrez combined for the Argentine to smash home a second.

Substitutes Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata were blasted by fans for laughing on the bench while City led.

Anthony Martial pulled one back for the visitors but Ilkay Gundogan sealed the win, capping off a 44-pass move with a neat finish late on.

Kyle Walker mocked United on Twitter soon after the full-time whistle but soon deleted the post.
