Spurs End Dreadful Run At Old Trafford

What this means? (Holds three fingers up) 3-0 but also means three Premier Leagues and I won more Premier League alone than the other 19 managers together.

Mourinho's audience was only thinking of the here and now, but the United manager was harking back to the past.

"The message that the supporters gave to the players was my message", Mourinho said of the United supporters, who had not streamed out of the stadium when the third goal went in, applauding at the end.

Spurs, who didn't sign a single player in the summer, have so far bagged back-to-back wins over Newcastle and Fulham, and should they topple the Red Devils, they'll accumulate three top-flight wins out of three at the start of a campaign for the first time in nine years. They pressed, they played quickly, they created chances.

A second-half opener from Harry Kane and a brace from Lucas Moura put United to the sword, and sent them tumbling down into the bottom half of the table after three games.

Marcelo called Ronaldo, 'the best in the world, ' demonstrating just how much they miss the Portuguese global . Real Madrid had preferred to use their goalkeeper, Keylor Navas than using the Belgium global .

The problem? Those three titles were won at Chelsea. We played very well. But the words and messages coming from Mourinho do not suggest he knows which direction he and his team are heading.

In the aftermath of Manchester United's loss to Tottenham, Craig Burley says it's time for Jose Mourinho, Ed Woodward or both to leave Old Trafford. The United manager dropped Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof, who were poor against Brighton in their previous defeat, and introduced a back three of Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and midfielder Ander Herrera.

Woodward believes Martial will become a vital component at Old Trafford in the future, but Mourinho was ready to cash in on a player he does not believe wants to be at Old Trafford. "Because we were not good, we were not unsafe enough, because Sevilla deserved to win the match", said Mourinho. "I would do the same, losing 3-0, taking two hours from here to the centre of Manchester, because it's where I live and I know that after matches it takes two hours, so I would do the same, so keep trying, keep trying, keep trying", he said. Let's keep calm and working hard is the most important thing.

Mourinho is at the front of the firing line with odds on him being the first Premier League manager of the season to lose his job already being slashed after two consecutive defeats. He needs to find a way to get himself and his team out of their downward spiral, but talking about the past isn't the way do it.
