Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was caught on camera reacting to Romelu Lukaku’s miss vs Manchester City in the Premier League.
The Red Devils took on the Sky Blues at Old Trafford in a huge clash of the titans game and it was Pep Guardiola’s men who ultimately came out on top.
A 2-1 result opens up the gap between the league leaders and their rivals to eleven points, leaving most fans to claim the title chase is all but over.
With busy winter period coming up, England’s top division heats up and former champions previously make their intentions clear during these times.
With City leading at the time, Lukaku missed a chance from point blank range, directing his shot straight at the opposition keeper, leaving Mourinho in writhing in agony.

A draw would’ve been a more acceptable result, leaving the door open for the Citizens to slip up at a later point.
The two Manchester clubs will also meet each other again once more later this season and so a single point might’ve meant taking apart City at a time the club may have been better prepared in.
Paul Pogba’s absence was ultimately felt to say the least despite Ander Herrera‘s excellent performance in midfield.
The Frenchman would’ve surely been the glue that held the team together if it weren’t for his suspension and instead United were left pumping balls forwards aimlessly.
Pogba’s composure and skill in the middle of the park would of led to a less anxious performance from the Red Devils and perhaps the story may have been a little different.
