Jose Mourinho was unhappy with his team's attitude, stating that they deserved "the punishment of only one point" after Manchester United drew 1-1 with Wolves.

"I think the result is fair".

"I think Wolves, by the way they faced the game, they deserve [the point] because they play like I like to play, which is like the World Cup final".

"I am not saying we are going to have more points than last season because last season we collected a very acceptable level of points", he said.

Yet, despite United's strong recent run, Wolves looked capable of handing the home manager an unwanted first, with Mourinho seeking to avoid an impressive statistic of never having lost consecutive home league games throughout his managerial career.

After three wins from three away games, United entered the match perhaps confident of a win, but it didn't materialise, something which Mourinho said was hard to understand.

It was once again a Manchester United performance we have been seeing since Jose Mourinho took over.

The Red Devils are looking to win the Champions League for the first time since 2008 when Manchester United beat Chelsea FC on penalties.

"What is most important for me is that we are growing". Also, Nuno Espirito Santo's team drew with both Manchester sides inside of their opening month and a half of the season after winning Championship.

"The first time United made a fantastic combination they score".

"I expect my team to play better than we did", added Mourinho. "They started better were more aggressive, had more intent and I don't know why but they were more motivated", the United manager said. This is something you learn when you're a kid in the academy.

Alexis Sanchez, an unused substitute in Bern, will come in and Mourinho believes the January signing, like the rest of his squad, has another level to go up.

'Unless you are against weak opponents, playing at 30 per cent of your potential is not enough. "We all know that is not the case (in the Premier League)", he said. So yes, it's a mental situation. "And I think we have to do better".
