Manchester United fell to their second defeat of the season as Tottenham Hotspur came out 3-0 winners at Old Trafford.
A Lucas Moura brace was preceded by a Harry Kane header in the second half to leave us six points behind Spurs at this early stage.
The scoreline was a bit harsh as we were the better team in the first half. Romelu Lukaku missed a golden opportunity to break the deadlock when he rounded the Spurs keeper but shot wide of an open goal.
There were a number of chances for us to score but our poor finishing came back to haunt us as Kane scored the first goal of the game via a header.
One quickly became two as Moura beat a couple of defenders and produced a deft finish. The Brazilian rounded off the scoring as he wrestled past Chris Smalling and smashed in his second of the game.
Some United fans were unhappy with the result and called for the manager to be sacked while a few voiced their support for Mourinho.

Whether Mourinho breaks his “3 year curse” shall be known soon but I’ll fully support him. Mourinho is the majority fan’s choice, we should take responsibility for any outcome.#MourinhoIn

Manchester United rebuilt itself after one of the biggest human tragedies to ever befall a club. Please don’t act like we are living our worst moment as a football club because we aren’t. Not even close. Losing games is part of football. Our job is to simply get behind the team.

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

It’s plainly obvious mourinho is not the manager we want or need. I’ve supported united for over 40 years and the style of football we play is criminal and totally against the soul of Manchester United. Mufc forever.

The only #MUFC player who can hold their head high this season is Luke Shaw

We dont need to sack Mourinho we already changed 3 managers and the results are same we need to look deeper in club philosophy because we buy players that play for the money not for the passion #GGMU #InMourinhoWeTrust
