Jose Mourinho says he knew his Manchester United side were not world beaters and admits it's his job to repair the damage of three successive defeats following his side's latest loss - at Watford - yesterday.

United's 3-1 defeat leaves them six points behind leaders City and comes on the back of the derby loss and the Europa League setback in Rotterdam against Feyenoord.

"I was completely aware we were not the perfect team that we had lots of players who were not the end product and could make mistakes," said Mourinho.

"My only doubt was the way they could cope with the negative moments because they would arrive sooner or later. Some individual feel the pressure too much.

"But from a collective point of view I only have good things to say about them. Sometimes things go against you. The improvement of the team and being able to stop the mistakes. I knew I had a task."
