Old Trafford witnessed a dramatic second half break down against Spurs, to see the Red Devils suffer back to back defeats in their first three games this season.
Having won the opening match against Leicester City. Jose Mourinho’s men have conceded six goals in two matches and, look like a team that that is suffering from a fairly non existent pre-season – which seen many a first team player on holiday after this years World Cup.
There is a lot of talk among the United faithful of why it seems to be all going wrong at United. Ed Woodward, the players and Mourinho himself are the subject of many conversations over recent weeks.
The Twitter reactions paint a picture of the general feel surrounding tonight’s 3-0 defeat…
I don’t get how people are blaming Mourinho for this loss, He did what you wanted. He tried to play high pressing attacking football, and it worked for the first half. But we don’t have solid defenders at the back and we got punished because of it. #MUNTOT

You cant solely blame Jose Mourinho for today’s defeat
Lukaku doesnt want to score 1 on 1
No leaders on the pitch
Entire defense is shambles
& Why the fcuk you get Fellaini on the pitch when Rashford is on the bench #MUNTOT

First time MUFC have conceded seven or more goals in the opening three league games for 49 years.

First thing José Mourinho did after the final whistle was consoling Luke Shaw, our best player who gave everything. Great touch that.

This has been coming to be honest. If this isn’t a reality check for both the board and management then I don’t really know anymore to be honest. Fundamental changes needed at the club. Having said that, I will back Jose until the very end. He is not solely to blame. #mufc

He has been let down massively by his players tonight, yet the press will do their usual witch hunt against him. I believe #mourinho is the right man, let down by the hierarchy in the summer and now us as fans have to watch what he told them, the players aren’t good enough #MUFC
