Mour to say on the Reds

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho claims Manchester United have enjoyed more than their fair share of luck this season.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho claims Manchester United have enjoyed more than their fair share of luck this season.

The Red Devils are nine points clear of the champions in the Premiership after their last-gasp 2-1 win at Fulham on Saturday, although Mourinho's side have a game in hand.

"This is a season in which Manchester United have had no injuries," said the Blues boss, who also referred to Ryan Giggs' winner at Lille in the Champions League last week.

"They have a disallowed goal for their opponent and their goal is given as a goal.

"They go to Fulham and it looks like they deserve to lose and they win. They play at Tottenham, it is 0-0 and Cristiano Ronaldo dives, they get a penalty and win 4-0. It looks like everything is on their side, but that is football."

Mourinho also claimed Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who has won just the 2005 FA Cup since Mourinho came to England, was under less pressure to win trophies.

He said: "Arsenal have great boys, but I would be sad if a club gives me three, four, five years and tells me `You don't need to win. You can lose Premiership after Premiership, and you have three, four, five seasons to build.'

"I do not think Arsenal are winning a lot."
