With the pathetic outcome of yesterday match against Tottenham, a match whereby Spurs walloped Man U at Old Trafford by 3:0, the match has now made Manchester United’s start to the season exacerbating.



Though, before the start of the season, the Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was the voice of pessimism coming into the season, complaining his team had not reinforced enough for his liking after a second place finish in 2017-18 which saw them finish 19 points behind their local rivals Manchester City. But the managerial board of the club did not come to propel help till the transfer deadline.

Despite Mourinho complain,  the Red Devils opened their season with three points against Leicester City in a narrow 2-1 victory. Then they lost to Brighton and Tottenham in their last two matches, which makes the club to only garnered 3 points out of 3 matches.

The start is the worst Manchester United have suffered since the 1992-93 season, 26 years ago, when the club also lost two of their first three contests. That season saw the Red Devils lose both of their first two matches of the season, to Sheffield United and Everton, respectively. Things actually did not fare much better in their third game, as a draw to Ipswich Town followed.

Also, yesterday match is the biggest home defeat for Mourinho in his managerial career. Meanwhile, it is expected that the Red Devils will reinforce strongly in their week 4 match against Burnley later in the week.
