Mourinho calls Man Utd ‘the unluckiest’

first_img“We were the best team by far,” Mourinho told Sky Sports. “I don’t want to say they didn’t want to win, I prefer to say they had no chances to win.“They could not be Arsenal the way they normally play. We were phenomenal from a defensive point of view.“The way we pressed, the way we were very strong, the way we controlled their counter attacks, the way we controlled their best players. We were phenomenal.“I am really happy with the team, but at the moment I consider us the unluckiest team in the Premier League because it is the reality.“If you analyse the last three matches. Against Stoke we have to win 5-0 or 6-0 and we draw. Against Burnley we have to win 5-0 or 6-0 and we draw and today we have to win 2-0 or 3-0 and we draw.“We are the unluckiest team but the team is playing well, the players are working really well.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000A fretful looking Mourinho acknowledged the support after the final whistle was blown on an entertaining contest.PHOTO/Getty ImagesMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Nov 19 – Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has called his team the unluckiest in the Premier League after Olivier Giroud denied him three points in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford.Juan Mata had put the Red Devils ahead in the 68th minute, and looked to be headed to a narrow win before the French striker produced a towering header in the 89th minute to frustrate the former Chelsea boss.last_img read more

Injury BLOW for Man United! Juan Mata could miss rest of season after surgery

first_img1 The 28-year-old’s groin problem is another setback for the Red Devils Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata is in danger of missing the rest of the season after undergoing groin surgery.The 28-year-old’s injury will prove a sizeable setback to boss Jose Mourinho, with United still chasing the Europa League title and battling for a top-four Premier League berth.Mata’s blow is the latest concern for United, following quickly on from Mourinho confirming “long-term injuries” to defenders Chris Smalling and Phil Jones.United confirmed Mata’s injury in a short statement on Friday night, saying: “Juan has had surgery for a groin injury. Further updates on his recovery will follow in due course.”Allied to the new injuries for Smalling and Jones, United must also do without Paul Pogba, Ander Herrera and Zlatan Ibrahimovic for Saturday’s Premier League clash against West Brom at Old Trafford.Herrera and Ibrahimovic will miss the West Brom encounter through suspension, with Pogba sidelined due to hamstring trouble.Defender Jones withdrew from England’s squad last week owing to a toe complaint that appeared to have been sustained in a training ground clash with United team-mate Smalling.Smalling also withdrew from England’s squad days later, and has been spotted with his right leg in a brace.So just when Mourinho would be aiming to kick United’s season into top gear, now the Portuguese boss must juggle his resources to offset the loss of a clutch of influential regulars.When confirming the injury lay-offs for Smalling and Jones on Friday, Mourinho insisted United must not dwell on their mounting problems.“We cannot be here crying or speaking about the players who are not available to play,” said Mourinho.“You know Zlatan and Herrera are suspended, you know that Herrera is two matches banned for that episode against Chelsea.“You know what happened in the English national team with Smalling and Jones.“You know that we have also Pogba injured, but I repeat they’re not important.“The important players are the ones that are ready to play and the ones I trust and the ones who are going to give us everything tomorrow to try to keep us in the fight for the top four.”last_img read more

Study: Latinos paying the price

first_img• LinkFile download After a wave of pro-immigrant street marches this spring – and with the debate over immigration policy still roiling the nation – a study released Thursday found that Latinos report they are facing more discrimination. More than half of the 2,000 Latino respondents to the survey – 54 percent – said they have seen an increase in discrimination as a result of the policy debate. They largely blame Republicans for stirring up an anti-immigrant backlash. But there’s also a greater sense of political unity among Latinos, the study by the Pew Hispanic Center found. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2A majority – 58 percent – of those polled by the center last month believe the marches ushered in a new social movement, one that they expect will last for years to come, the surveyshowed. About three-quarters of those surveyed – regardless of their birth place – said the marches would prompt more Latinos to vote in the November elections. “Clearly both the marches and the immigration debate have made deep impressions on Latino public opinion,” said Robert Suro, director of the Pew Hispanic Center and co-author of the study on Latino attitudes toward immigration. But Gabriel Escobar, co-author of the report, said it’s unclear whether the momentum will translate into votes for either party come November. The survey showed that a majority of Latinos believe the Republican Party is on the wrong side of the immigration debate. But those feelings did not translate into more Latinos registering as Democrats. The number of Latinos who believe the Republican Party has the best position on immigration dropped from 25 percent before the immigration debate began late last year to 16 percent last month. But the study also showed that the Democratic Party has not registered any significant gains in membership during that time. According to the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, 36 percent of Latinos are registered Democrats, compared to 22 percent registered as Republicans. That is down from the 41 percent of Latinos who listed their party affiliation as Democratic prior to 9/11. Jimmy Plancarta, a 17-year-old Whittier resident and high school student whose parents are from Mexico and Ecuador, said he has seen both increased discrimination since the marches and more unity among different Latino groups. “We are more united,” he said. “Before it was Mexicans with Mexicans and Salvadorans with Salvadorans. Now, we’re like this,” he said, crossing his fingers. But Plancarta said he has also encountered racially insensitive remarks. “Can you mow my lawn?” is a typical taunt, he said. El Monte resident Manuel Aquino, 73, a former “brasero” who came to America in 1948 as a legal migrant worker, then became a U.S. citizen in 1999, said Latinos who can vote should to help those here illegally – but through the ballot box. “People who can become citizens should help gain amnesty for others through their votes,” said Aquino, a registered Democrat. “This way, the government can investigate the background of applicants and make sure they are honest, law-abiding citizens.” Rashid Flores, 27, of Whittier believes the spring marches fostered a sense of hope among all Latinos. But Raul Ramirez, 25, of Pico Rivera thinks the protests had only a limited impact. “To be honest with you, protests can only do so much. It’s not up to protests to change something; it’s up to the legislators,” Ramirez said. “It’s probably brought people together, but will they stay together?”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Local trail system may be added to map

first_imgSANTA CLARITA – About 80 miles of new hiking and horseback riding trails may be added to maps of Los Angeles County. Trails under consideration stretch across northern Los Angeles County, reaching from Val Verde to Acton and sweep across Palmdale, in largely undeveloped and vacant land. Rapid growth in northern Los Angeles County prompted concerns from local groups to have these trails deemed preserved, a legal status that prevents developers from building on them. The map includes historic trails. After receiving approval from the county Regional Planning Commission on Wednesday, the issue now heads to a public hearing before the Board of Supervisors, which will vote on the revised trail maps.

Vimeo Releases New Player with Improved Accessibility
