  • Burnley have had a tricky start to the season

Manchester United have endured a hard start to the new season as Jose Mourinho's men have been defeated twice in the first three matches including a 0-3 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.

About the banner, flown over the ground 20 minutes before kick-off, Mourinho said: "I did not see it".

"I think it was a very, very good performance with a result which was short".

"I think Gareth Southgate wants him to play, he wants him to play somewhere", Wright added.

While United profess they haven't discussed replacing Mourinho, the notion of dumping the Portuguese and bringing in Zidane to replace him has been in the water for several weeks now.

Joe Hart saved Paul Pogba's penalty and Marcus Rashford's red card were the only negatives for the visitors and their manager, who has plenty of reasons to be cheerful after a line was drawn under his wretched start to his third season at Old Trafford. "It left the club without a certain type of experience that the biggest club in the world needs", Schmeichel said on Monday.

Mourinho has "lost the confidence of a clique of United players": ReportAclique of Manchester United players have fallen out of favour with Jose Mourinho, according to the Daily Mail.

"I don't know, I didn't watch", Mourinho said.

The chairman of Pakistan's senate foreign relations committee, Mushahid Hussain, said the proposed cuts were "a sop to India". On announcing the initial suspension, Trump accused Islambad of "nothing but lies & deceit" in a widely cited tweet.

Mourinho claimed that Pogba will remain United's penalty taker, despite his miss, should he wish to remain on duty.

It's no great surprise that United rebuffed a direct top four rival for two of their stars, and whilst Martial is seemingly impossible to prise away from Old Trafford, that may not be the case with Mata.

"He is one of those players who love to remain involved in the game".

"We won 2-0 but we also had many chances to score, but I am happy with 2-0".

There was no failings in United's start to the game, though, with Romelu Lukaku continuing his rich vein of form from last season with a brace this weekend.

United held firm for their second win of the season, though, allowing Mourinho to head into the two-week worldwide break in a happier mood. It's good for us.

"There were lots of good performances but Fellaini was fundamental, together with Smalling and Lindelof".

"Many of the problems stem from Ed Woodward's continuous undermining of Manchester United managers in the transfer market, in matters of the playing squad, and in his inconsistent approach to recruitment and retention of managers and players".
