  • Jose Mourinho clutches a Manchester United scarf as he stands before the home fans at Old Trafford

United legend Wayne Rooney, who played under Mourinho when he won the Europa League and League Cup in 2017, recently came to his former manager's defense.

"It's alright saying it's a disaster - yes it is, it's 3-0, but if you're a manager you'd say to your players at the end of the day 'look cut the silly mistakes out, keep getting this possession rating, keep getting this shot rating and we'll win far more games than we'll lose".

After Manchester United were hammered 3-0 at Old Trafford by Mauricio Pochettino's blistering Tottenham side, the 55-year-old "Special One" finds himself as the bookies' favorite to be the first manager sacked this season.

Speaking at his post-match news conference on Monday night, Mourinho said: "I don't know what Phil Jones has - maybe a hamstring but I did not speak yet to know what it is - but we have Smalling, Lindelof and Eric Bailly".

United held Tottenham goalless in the first half and the player admitted they didn't play well.

United return to action on Sunday when they travel to Turf Moor to face Burnley, one of seven teams now below them at this early stage of the Premier League season. We were so on top and it's just disappointing, really disappointing.

"Everyone in the dressing room is really sad, especially after the first half we had and especially a big thank you to the fans for the way they supported us, even when we were down 3-0, was incredible".

"We lost last season here against Sevilla and were booed because we deserved it, because we were not good", he said, referring to last season's Champions League round of 16 exit. We wanted to put a statement out there.We need to kill teams off, especially away from home.

Whilst Pochettino seemingly told the agent that Moura's best work would be done out wide, that's now two games in a row in which Moura has virtually been used in attack alongside Kane - and with three goals in that role, Moura may just be showing why his agent made such complaints in the first place.
