"But I did at half-time, we changed the direction of the game but we didn't get the compensation I think we deserved in the second half".
"He [Rashford] is going to play is the only thing I can say", Mourinho told United's official website. "He gave us in the second half what we needed but didn't get from Miki or Jesse in the first half".

But they could not find a leveller, while the excellent De Bruyne - whom Guardiola said "played an unbelievable, fantastic game" - hit a post again with around 15 minutes to go.
"Sometimes (mistakes) happen and the player thinks it's my fault", Guardiola said.
"It is my fault because I am the manager and it was my choice".
'It was a penalty and a red card for (Claudio) Bravo.
Mourinho also said referee Mark Clattenburg should have awarded penalties for an incident in which Bravo took down Rooney and an alleged handball by City centre-back Nicolas Otamendi.
