Manchester United supporters were critical of Jose Mourinho on Monday night after the Red Devils succumbed a disappointing 3-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils started the game on a bright note with Romelu Lukaku failing to convert with an empty net and things became even as the teams headed into the half-time break.
However, during the second period, United’s defensive organisation was all over the place and Spurs capitalised with Harry Kane and a Lucas Moura brace completing an embarrassing 3-0 rout.
Following the game, the majority of the United fans were not pleased with the result, which sees the team already six points behind the top-four race after just three games into the campaign.
I can’t believe some people think it’s not Mourinho’s fault.
1. He has the best CM in the world at his disposal and he is making him look like Kouyate
2. He played Herrera in a back 3 when Lindelof’s available as a form of rebellion against Woodward for not signing a defender

Can’t wait till the day Mourinho gets sacked. Too bad it’s not gonna happen till a few months. This isn’t the LVG era, this has the feel of Moyes all over. #mufc

When a José Mourinho team is conceding six goals over two consecutive games, you know things are at rock bottom. No cohesion whatsoever.

Mourinho hasn’t lost the dressing room, with the exception of one or two, those players played for him and that’s the concerning part.

Mourinho was seemingly desperate to pursue a new central defender during the summer and the club’s failure to do appears to have hampered them with seven goals leaked from just three matches.
Against Spurs, Chris Smalling had a fairly decent game with a number of interceptions but he was not complimented by Phil Jones, who struggled to make an impression before going off with an injury.
At present, Mourinho continues to get the support of a section of the supporters despite the result and hopefully, the players are able to react in the forthcoming games or else the worst outcome of a sack could become a reality.
