The Spurs boss insisted he hadn’t, but he felt that United were fortunate to have only Martial leave the field.
“For sure, Man United could have ended the match with eight players because a few other actions could have ended that way,” Mourinho said.
“But I agree with Anthony Taylor not to because it could have been disastrous for them, Luke Shaw for example.
“We were confident and we were winning, but of course it made it easier, but the game was in our pocket.”
For Tottenham, it’s a third win in the space of six days with things looking up for Mourinho.
