Luke Shaw apologises to Manchester United fans after Tottenham humiliation

Jose Mourinho raged at reporters following Manchester United's latest Premier League defeat, demanding respect for his past achievements.

Mourinho reminded the players they were on top at half time before their disastrous second half. "Three for me and two for them", he said.

"You have the siege mentality and you get everybody behind you, you're playing for Manchester United you give 100 per cent".

The match was also Spurs's biggest top-flight win at Old Trafford since a 4-1 victory in 1972.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Gary Neville described him as "emotional" and said United's game-plan descended from "intensity to chaos". Three, nil. But also means three premierships, and I won more premierships alone than the other 19 [current English Premier League] managers together.

Pochettino's half-time words of wisdom made a huge difference as Spurs came out a different side after the break.

Or was Mourinho just deflecting from the fact that he lacks any answer to the most obvious question facing him - how to sort out a defence that has leaked six goals in two games and was opened up easily by Spurs after the break?

"And obviously to the fans that came out tonight, we're sorry, we'll be better next week". Two minutes later Lucas Moura doubled the visitors' advantage with a clinical finish from Christian Eriksen's pass, and the Brazilian got his second of the night six minutes from time.

Meanwhile, Harry Kane says Tottenham's win is a big statement to their title rivals. After beating Leicester in its opener, United lost to Brighton 3-2 and now has three points after three rounds.

He added: "To be honest, I'd rather have had the game on Saturday because you just want to bounce back after a defeat".

Tottenham fans had chanted "You're getting sacked (fired) in the morning". They saw good things in the first half of Monday's game, when Man U kept Spurs off the board in a scoreless draw.

Perhaps. Mourinho is the gift that keeps on giving for the back pages, and they'll miss him if he goes, but you can not help but feel he has been the master of his own destruction.

Mourinho added: "I don't think it's normal for a team to lose at home and (the fans) react like that".

The pressure on Jose Mourinho is growing and he appears to be struggling to deal with it.
