I don’t think it’s something new for the club.”Hardly the words United fans would want to hear. Not after those two timid displays in the last 16 against Sevilla.

To be honest, it was never really going to be any other way under Mourinho.But at home? With United’s traditions? With the attacking riches at Mourinho’s disposal? That was never going to wash with United’s supporters.It felt there was anxiety in the air from the start of the 2-1 loss at Old Trafford on Tuesday, which began — somewhat fittingly — with a long ball lumped up toward Marouane Fellaini. By the midway point of the second half, Sevilla had grown into the game — Ever Banega and Steven Nzonzi controlling the midfield — and United’s players knew they were in a precarious situation.Then substitute Wissam Ben Yedder came on, gave Sevilla the cutting edge it was missing, and scored twice in four minutes. United needed a complete change in mentality, and had 12 minutes to score three goals. It was never going to happen.“I don’t have regrets,” Mourinho said.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Manchester United head coach Jose Mourinho walks to the dressing room after his side were defeated by Sevilla during the Champions League round of 16 second leg soccer match at Old Trafford in Manchester, England, Tuesday, March 13, 2018. Sevilla won the game 2-1 and go through to the quarterfinals .(AP Photo/Dave Thompson)MANCHESTER, England — It was almost like Jose Mourinho didn’t care.Manchester United had just exited the Champions League in the meekest fashion and the team’s manager dealt with it with a shrug of the shoulders.ADVERTISEMENT Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina How about giving Fellaini a first start in any competition since Nov. 22, in United’s biggest game of the season? How about sending the team out with a cautious mindset? How about the latest disappointing display by new signing Alexis Sanchez?“I did my best, the players did their best. We tried, we lost,” Mourinho said. “That’s football.”The stark facts are that United had four shots on target across both legs, against a team that conceded more goals (12) than any other side still in the Champions League and five goals on two occasions in its past seven Spanish league games.Sevilla’s 21 shots in the second leg was the most United had given up at home in a competitive match since 2013 — in that loss to Mourinho’s Real Madrid.Nemanja Matic did what Mourinho couldn’t do and accepted that United was eliminated by the better team over the two legs.“There is no excuse,” the Serbia midfielder said. “Sevilla were better than us, so they deserved it.”All the momentum built up from huge wins over Chelsea and Liverpool in the Premier League over the past two weeks has been lost. United fans will just about accept their team having 32 percent possession at home against Liverpool, as long as it results in a victory — like it did on Saturday in what was widely regarded as a “Mourinho masterclass.”But when the team plays so conservatively and doesn’t win, questions will be asked of Mourinho’s methods that have always seemed at odds with United’s heritage of entertaining soccer.The fact that, across Manchester, rival Man City is playing some of the best soccer ever seen in the English game just puts United’s style of play further under scrutiny.

Mexico beats defending champion Germany 1-0 at World Cup

That set the tone for Mexico to torment Germany on the counterattack, with Lozano taking full advantage of right back Joshua Kimmich’s tendency to go forward.In his first competitive start since Sept. 16 because of injury, Neuer was kept busy saving a stinging long shot from Hector Herrera in the 10th, then a header shortly after a free kick.Timo Werner could have scored when he picked up a ball near the penalty spot, but his shot went straight to Ochoa.With key players tiring in the second half, Mexico pulled back and substituted both Lozano and Carlos Vela.
