Manchester United’s difficult start to their Premier League season went from bad to worse tonight as they slipped to an embarrassing 3-0 defeat to Spurs at Old Trafford.
England captain Harry Kane headed Mauricio Pochettino’s side into the lead just after half-time, before Brazilian attacker Lucas Moura’s well taken brace sealed the win for the North London club.
Speaking after the game former Chelsea and Celtic striker Chris Sutton slammed Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, claiming that the Portuguese coach has lost the plot and stated that he does not think the Red Devils players are playing for their manager.
“Jose Mourinho sounds like he has lost the plot with his post-match comments because we all watched this game, and they were outclassed.” Sutton said on BBC Radio.
“I don’t think Spurs applied themselves very well early on, but when they put their foot down, they exploited a team that has no leaders. There is a blame game going on here and the players do not look like they want to play for him.”
