  • Mauricio Pochettinos Tottenham will look very similar to the side he favoured last season given the lack of summer signings

After losing 3-0 to Tottenham in the English Premier League at Old Trafford on Monday (NZT Tuesday), the Portuguese manager defiantly held up three fingers at his news conference as he took aim at the media.

"Respect!" a fiery Mourinho raged at reporters on exiting his post-match press conference.

Yet his third season´s second time round at Chelsea and Madrid ended acrimoniously and a third campaign at United already looks like heading the same way.

Mourinho himself said of the heavy defeat: "We worked all week and from the tactical point of view we didn't lose, but we lost the game".

He is at odds with executive vice chairman Ed Woodward, who fears Martial leaving and developing along similar lines to Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah, two other players Mourinho discarded. "I am a manager who always assumes the responsibility and always my thought is, 'You can do better.'. They were better in the first half but we dominated from then on and the clean sheet was a bonus", said the Argentine. "Three for me and two for them", he said. They care that he has contributed to a characterless shambles of a defensive unit on the field and has openly criticised directors and players alike in public over the last couple of months.

The North Londoners are now on three wins from three, while they've just inflicted United's second defeat of the season following last week's horror show at Brighton.

After scoring his first goal at Old Trafford, Kane told Sky Sports: "That's massive, to come here and win the way we did is a big statement". Normally when you play well you win it, and that's what I try not to let go away with the score. Yes, the first-half display was full of objective, energy and intensity in a way that the 3-2 loss to Brighton had not been.

Mourinho is far from the only issue at Manchester United, but the more he behaves like this, the more he becomes the biggest problem that needs solving.

It is hard to see this United team challenging for the title but there is a real danger that their poor start could turn into a much a deeper slump. The most important thing is to keep calm.
