Jose Mourinho explained the reasons behind their loss in UEFA

Jose Mourinho said his side loss on UEFA Champions League first leg because they lack attack players as Heung-Min Son had joined Harry Kane on the long-term injury list.

“You have to look at our situation,” he said. “If you want to make an exercise of football you can maybe think, Champions League game, Barcelona without [Lionel] Messi, [Luis] Suarez and [Antoine] Griezmann.

“If you want to look at, let’s say, Liverpool. One Champions League game, no [Mohamed] Salah, no [Sadio] Mane, no [Roberto] Firmino, but they would still have [Divock] Origi.

“We are speaking about a very difficult situation and if I could I would move immediately to the 1st of July, with Harry Kane, with [Mousa] Sissoko, with Son, with [Steven] Bergwijn, with Lucas, with Lamela, I would.

“I would love to be at the 1st of July, but I’m not, I’m on February 19th. So, we have to fight until the end.

“What worries me is that this is going to be the situation until the end of the season. Because if this is the situation for a couple of matches I would say, ‘OK, we are in a difficult situation now but the next game at home in two weeks when we play Wolves is going to be different.’

“The situation is going to be exactly the same. But I’m so proud of the players and, speaking about the Champions League and the next match against Leipzig, one thing I can guarantee – because this is the mentality of my players – is that, even with I don’t know who will be playing in attack, we are going there to fight until our limits.”
