Mourinho shrugs off Man City players’ ‘park the bus’ jibe

Jose Mourinho vowed Manchester United will fight for the title until the final game after their 2-1 win at West Brom.

Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard netted first-half goals to give United a deserved, if lacklustre, victory at The Hawthorns.

They closed the gap to Premier League leaders Manchester City to 11 points after securing back-to-back wins.

City beat Tottenham 4-1 on Saturday to record a 16th straight league win but United boss Mourinho refused to let them go.

He said: “I know that the questions are always coming in the same direction and I keep saying the same. Last match in the Premier League, Watford at Old Trafford, mid-May, and until then every match we go.

“Every match we try to win. If you do that question to us and then you do it to the third and the fourth and to the fifth and to the sixth, probably they disappear. Probably they want to go on holidays.

“We don’t want to go on holidays. We want to play until the last match.”

Mourinho, who confirmed Antonio Valencia suffered a hamstring injury, also dismissed a video of Manchester City’s players chanting – following their win over Spurs – about his side ‘parking the bus’ in a direct jibe to their rivals.

He added: “I didn’t see, I didn’t watch. I am not interested in doing that. You are the ones to make your evaluations, your comments. For me nothing.”
