'We didn't lose': Man United manager in denial after Tottenham humiliation

Toby Alderweireld will likely start in central defence for Tottenham against Manchester United in Mauricio Pochettino's preferred back-line Former Tottenham Hotspur Midfielder Makes Bold Claim About Mauricio Pochettino's Side

Spurs blew Manchester United away in the second half on Monday night, Harry Kane's masterful header followed two minutes later by a Lucas Moura strike.

"[Whilst holding three fingers up] Do you know what this means?" 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.

Jamie Redknapp has warned Jose Mourinho that the "writing is on the wall" at Manchester United.

"We work all week, and by the strategic point of view we didn't lose, by the tactical point of view we didn't lose, but we lost the game".

The Portuguese tactician is yet to start the same defence in any two games this campaign, with only left-back Luke Shaw starting all three matches and midfielder Ander Herrera used at centre-back against Spurs.

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.

That didn't look too good to me.


Jose Mourinho's side was under pressure to get a win following last Sunday's 3-2 loss to Brighton and Fred almost gave them a dream start when he chested down a loose ball in Spurs' penalty area and fired a low volley into the side netting.

It looks like come January, Mourinho will be looking for new players.

The problem? Those three titles were won at Chelsea. The same could be said of the United manager, who needs to focus on making the present and future as good as the past he is so determined to remind us about.

Mourinho said his team was superior strategically and tactically.

Despite the emphatic loss at home, Mourinho was pleased with his side's effort both before and during the match. I don't consider it a hard time. "I already knew then that they are great players, but since then they have made great progress and now are in the top 5 in the world", said Van Der Vaart.

Mourinho knows the answer to that question well enough. He needs to find a way to get himself and his team out of their downward spiral, but talking about the past isn't the way do it.
