José Mourinho believes that the goals are coming for Manchester United.
While he won’t be at the Premier League clash at Swansea on Sunday due to suspension, the Portuguese is confident his team’s “amazing” football will end their goal drought.
The Reds were left frustrated last weekend after 37 efforts at goal — a record since stats began – ended in a 0-0 draw with Burnley at Old Trafford.
It was the third league game in a row in which Mourinho’s men had failed to score, following a 1-1 draw with Stoke City before that run.
But Jose is adamant that the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney will get on the scoresheet soon.
He says: “Sometimes you are in a period when one chance is enough to win the match.
“Sometimes people in the stadium are very disappointed and they are not even emotionally in the game but you score a goal and you win.
“Other times people are excited and players are excited and players play incredible football and the emotion is there until the last second and the players don’t stop.
“The number of chances was amazing [against Burnley], the quality of football the same. Stoke was more of the same, not with so many shots on target, but it was also a game where probably the quality of our attacking football was even higher.
“So one day we really have to score a lot of goals but the good thing is we have found a way to play.”
Mourinho has been banned from the touchline for one match and fined a total of £58 000 pounds two separate incidents of misconduct.
The Portuguese admitted to using abusive and/or insulting language towards referee Mark
Clattenburg during last weekend’s match against Burnley and was also fined £8000 pounds for the incident.
Mourinho was also charged for comments he made about referee Anthony Taylor ahead of the
Premier League game against Liverpool, and was fined a further £50000.
