José Mourinho has pointedly highlighted the fact that Manchester United have been awarded 13 Premier League penalties this season as he sidestepped a question about why Bruno Fernandes won a spot-kick on Thursday and Harry Kane did not.

“Ask the referees, not me,” the Tottenham manager said, as he continued to lament the non-award for Kane in his team’s 0-0 draw at Bournemouthfollowing a push by Joshua King.

José Mourinho has pointedly highlighted the fact that Manchester United have been awarded 13 Premier League penalties this season as he sidestepped a question about why Bruno Fernandes won a spot-kick on Thursday and Harry Kane did not.

The Spurs manager is frustrated at the relatively poor goals return from his attacking players particularly, as it was put to him, as they have the ability to rival those at United, his previous club, and Liverpool.

“United’s 13 penalties is a help,” Mourinho added. United have scored nine of them while Spurs have converted three of their four penalties in the league this season.
