Manchester United's Jose Mourinho 'inspirational' to other managers - Mauricio Pochettino

  • Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester United – Premier League – AMEX Stadium

Harry Kane broke the deadlock just five minutes after the restart, before a brace from Lucas Moura gave the north London outfit a comfortable 3-0 victory.

Manchester United were absolutely embarrassed on Monday, falling 3-0 to Tottenham at Old Trafford for a second straight loss.

Mourinho made six changes from the side beaten 3-2 at Brighton and Hove Albion last week and dropped both central defenders, Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof.

And it could be very soon.

The Belgian striker had another chance a couple of minutes later when he scuffed Luke Shaw's cutback from 18 yards out.

To play offensively or for a certain result.

Carragher and Neville hailed Mauricio Pochettino's side after what could prove a significant breakthrough in their quest to become genuine title contenders, but the duo were less effusive of United after a "chaotic" display that will heap more pressure on Mourinho.

"We knew it was going to be tough and it was, especially in the first half, it was a battle out there".

Spurs now had a ideal record after three rounds helped when Harry Kane and Lucas Moura struck twice in a three-minute span early in the second half to get them ahead at Old Trafford.

A minute later, they doubled their advantage when Christian Eriksen's cross was swept home by Lucas.

Former Liverpool midfielder Graeme Souness believes that Jose Mourinho could be heading in the same direction with Manchester United this season as Antonio Conte did with Chelsea last season.

The Belgian's most crucial contribution was a last-ditch tackle to take a volley off the toe of Lingard 10 yards from goal.

Maybe he felt that a display of passion would go down well with the supporters at Old Trafford, who, it should be noted, showed no sign of turning against him.

Spurs had two chances at a third go begging after the hour mark, when Alli failed to beat De Gea after picking up a awful Victor Lindelof back pass and Kane heading wide at the far post from another Trippier corner.

Fit-again forward Alexis Sanchez also came off the bench and had one half-chance to pull one back for the Red Devils when he drifted in from the left flank to shoot through the legs of Kieran Trippier, but off target. David De Gea has the ball and chips it to Phil Jones at the corner of the 18 yard box.

United face a tough trip to Burnley this weekend before the global break, when a third defeat on the spin would be unthinkable.
