Mauricio Pochettino hails 'massive victory' after 3-0 win at Man Utd

28 August 2018

Jose Mourinho showed his appreciation for the Manchester United fans' support after Monday night's bad 3-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.

In any case, Mourinho's accomplishments with Chelsea in two separate stints (2004-07, 2013-15) probably don't mean all that much to whether he'll be able to keep his United job for long or not. "Me three, them two", he said.

The Portuguese manager struck a defiant tone in his post-match interview, highlighting the chants of support from the crowd. "Today the players left the pitch after losing at home and they were applauded because they deserved it, so we keep trying, trying, trying", Mourinho said.

"I don't think it's normal to lose a game at home and the supporters to react the way they did".

As Mourinho walked away from the presser, he called out, "Respect, please".

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.

Instead, it was Smalling who lined up in the center of the back three with Phil Jones and Ander Herrera either side. But United are not clinical, they do not play with a consistent style of play.

Last month, the Pope accepted McCarrick's resignation following the release of evidence that he had abused a child. Despite repeated requests from journalists, the Vatican had not responded to the allegations by midday August 26.

After rounding Hugo Lloris, however, the Belgian striker screwed his shot just wide.

Harry Kane's precise header put Spurs in command at the start of the second half.

For Pochettino, though, this was a statement of intent at a venue where Spurs had lost 21 of their previous 26 games. We played very well.

Woodward believes Martial will become a vital component at Old Trafford in the future, but Mourinho was ready to cash in on a player he does not believe wants to be at Old Trafford.

Exactly why United did not bring in a new player in that department, whether it be Leicester City's Harry Maguire, Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld or Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng who were all linked with the club, remains unclear.

Moura, who has started his second season like a house on fire, bagged his second, and Spurs' third, five minutes from time when he raced through and slotted past David De Gea. "What I had to say I told and I don't need to say one more word about that".
