Manchester United stand by José Mourinho and see cause for hope

Instead, United's inability to capitalise on a bright start saw Spurs exploit their defensive frailties in a whirlwind second half.

After a promising first-half display at Old Trafford, the Red Devils conceded three times in the second half as Harry Kane and Lucas Moura ripped through the hosts' defence.

The heavy defeat has put Mourinho under even more pressure so early on in the season ahead of their tough trip to Burnley on Sunday.

Whatever it is, it was said the Portuguese boss is no longer supported by his players with the loss against Tottenham labelled as evidence.

But this United team, which he has now been in charge of for more than two years, looks nowhere near the quality of Mourinho's title-winning Chelsea teams, so why is Mourinho telling us all to show him respect for the three titles he won at Stamford Bridge? "We're not getting carried away of course". "But we lost the game".

Shaw believes it should have been "game over" by half-time as United impressed against a frustrated Spurs side. On minute 50 they have one corner and score a goal and with that goal you want to transform the story of the game.

But after a promising first-half they imploded in the second 45 minutes.

Ali Abbas Zafar: Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif's chemistry is unmissable
Lately, Salman's sister Arpita Khan Sharma shared a attractive picture of Katrina hugging the actor's mother, Salma Khan. Salman has been surprisingly active on social media and has constantly been sharing several photos from the sets.

"A big thank you to the fans for the way they supporting us", Shaw told MUTV. His companion at the game appears to not so subtly say in his ear: "sack him", which receives no visible response from Woodward.

"We've done well in the last few years but not quite got there - but we have the drive to take the club to the next level".

"Another silly, stupid goal". We were so on top and it's just disappointing, really disappointing.

"The facts are, United did create more than Tottenham, they did outplay Tottenham, but unfortunately they missed their chances and their slack defending and some brilliant finishing from Tottenham was the difference".

"I think they're a club in crisis".

"To the fans that came out tonight, we are sorry and we will be better next week, we will improve, we will keep working hard". We had Valencia and Luke Shaw arriving in unsafe positions, we miss goals with an open goal, we miss chances, we were unlucky in rebounds in both goals, we lost a game by conceding at the first corner of the match against us in minute 50.
