The Tigers goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic was outstanding in the encounter as he brilliantly denied Zlatan Ibrahimovic's long-range strike and Paul Pogba's driving effort in the first half and spectacular saves in the second. It ended Man Utd 0 - 0 Hull City.
Mourhinho’s men failed to close the gap on the top four teams on the log and the frustrated manager admitted that his side was far from impressive in the fixture
"We didn't score. You don't score, it is not possible to win. Their goalkeeper was good.
"We needed to score, we needed more time to play. If you played 35-40 minutes in both halves, it is a lot. I think Hull City tried to see where they could go, the way they could behave and tried to see what the referee would allow them to do.
"They had the feedback and were comfortable to do what they did. I am not critical of that. They are fighting against relegation and every point is gold.
The Red Devils remain sixth on the Premier League standings with 42 points after 23 matches. Chelsea remain on top of the log with 56 points, with Tottenham and Arsenal both on 47 points second and third respectively.
