Keown said: ‘(Let’s keep it) in the dressing room. I don’t think my respect is increased towards the manager. Some of them leave will get hurt, maybe my career is over, and I don’t think the players who come on are much better.
‘If you want to talk to me, please talk to my face, no?
‘These are messages and I think keep it indoors. Sometimes it’s chaotic, a little childish. The players have to keep their mouths shut and he is on Instagram.
‘I don’t think that’s healthy. When I see that, I don’t think (closeness) exists.
‘He’s been struggling with the players, you need to keep them with the players in that squad. It should be equal for all players. There should be a path for all players. It’s a message to them, it hurts.

Apparently Mourinho was impatient with some of his players in the match, as he made four person changes in the first half.
Dele Alli was the most notable player sent off as he failed to play in the second half in the starting three games this season, with Giovani Lo Celso, Steven Bergwijn and Carlos Vinicius also on the bench.
Although Mourinho, who is ultimately responsible for making the nine changes, has not entered the name of the 24-year-old, it is hard to believe he was not talking about Alli.
“Look, you know what our best team is,” he said. ‘You also know what I know, that everyone knows. But I always think that the players deserve the opportunity.
‘We have a great squad with many good players. I have a responsibility to give them the chance to play and seize opportunities with both hands and have the condition to ask for more.
‘And tonight, my future selection will be very easy. But again, there was only one person responsible. Not the players. It is my responsibility as it is my decision to play.
‘I don’t want to analyze individuals. I don’t like doing that, especially with you (the media).
‘I think it’s fair to say, the players with bad performances they affect the team, but the team also affects the individual performance.

So I don’t have to personalize and put some names on the table. You prefer to do it, before the games you always ask me why this player is not playing, why this player is not playing, why this player was not selected. Maybe for a few weeks you haven’t asked me that because you already have the answer.
‘I want to make 11 changes (during half-time). I haven’t done the year because I’m afraid 45 minutes long without any changes to make.
‘There’s only one thing to blame, that’s me. I formed a team, I chose starting players and in the first half I tried to improve the situation, but that was not enough.
‘The dynamics of the first half were there and the mentality of the first half was there.’
