Lucas Moura’s man of the match performance on a night to forget for Jose Mourinho and Manchester United fans earned Mauricio Pochettino his first goals and first points as Tottenham Hotspur manager at Old Trafford.

Incidentally, the win ensured United have lost two of their opening three Premier League games for the first time since 1992, while Spurs are on their best start since 2009/10.

Goals from Harry Kane and a double from Lucas Moura ensured Tottenham climbed to 2nd position on the log behind Liverpool and Manchester United condemned to 13th position after just 3 games.

The Red Devils made six changes from the side that lost 3-2 at Brighton. Lindelof and Bailly were replaced by Jones and Smalling; Valencia, Matic and Herrera came in while Ashley Young was also replaced by Lingard. For all the tweaks, the performance was still lacklustre and the defence in most cases was shambolic.

The 3-0 home loss leaves the self acclaimed ‘Special One’ with plenty to think about while Ed Woodward will perhaps be looking to call a crisis meeting having seen the Red Devils on the field performances plummet over recent times.

Amid rumours of erstwhile Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane been muted as a successor to the Portuguese in the event that he gets fired, Tottenham fans on the night taunted Mourinho with chants of ‘you’re getting sacked in the morning.’ It remains to be seen if this message struck the right cords in the minds of Ed Woodward and the Glazer family.

Any doubts as to the looming plan by Man United supporters to fly a banner calling for the ouster of Ed Woodward when Burnley plays host to Man United will be erased by the disbelief on the faces of home fans as a rampant Tottenham side tore their team to shreds at Old Trafford.
