Jose Mourinho watched his Man Utd side crash to the worst home defeat of his managerial career on Monday

Manchester United have endured a hard start to the new season as Jose Mourinho's men have been defeated twice in the first three matches including a 0-3 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.

After appearing in court in 2017, the Manchester United manager said "I did not answer, I did not argue".

"I think he is dealing very well with the pressure", he said.

"I'm very patient, I know it is going to take time for Manchester United to get back to the level we used to be at, but I'm absolutely convinced that we will get there".

A banner was unfurled from a plane above Turf Moor before kick-off that read, "Ed Woodward: A Specialist In Failure".


To recap, Manchester United made a rather light splash in the transfer window, despite Mourinho expressing a need to improve his squad and keep up with the other top teams in England and the rest of Europe.

It means the 21-year-old will miss three games after the global break and comes at a time when he is struggling to break into United's line-up.

Diogo Dalot says the chance to play for Jose Mourinho at Manchester United was a "dream come true" and hailed his new boss as one of the "greatest ever".

The Uruguay worldwide believes that Pogba could be swayed into leaving the Premier League in the near future as a way of joining a more competitive team both domestically and in Europe.

There's plenty of reason to suggest the situation at Old Trafford has been blown out of proportion and Mourinho has plenty of time to turns things around.


"You can't tell me that Gareth wouldn't wouldn't want someone like Marcus Rashford playing regularly". I'm one more step closer to where I want to be because I want to play. "The result shouldn't have been open until the last minute".

Two goals from Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku gave United the win on the day and the number of chances created will have been hugely encouraging.

Starting the season with two defeats in their first three games for the first time since 1992 raised questions about Mourinho's position and the atmosphere in the dressing room, but Fellaini believes the players answered any lingering questions at Burnley ahead of six games in 18 days after the worldwide break.

In what might be seen as a clever propaganda move Mourinho had as much praise for the fans as his players. It's good for us also. It was a very good week of work and we started the week as you saw.

United for the first time this season looked solid and comfortable at the back, with good performances from each member of the back four.
