Mourinho applauds fans, praises players after Spurs loss

Zinedine Zidane is said to want to replace Jose Mourinho should he leave United

Tottenham grew into the game and then exploded into life in the second half with three goals, the first coming on 50 minutes from the head of Harry Kane.

And his team starting well, enjoying the better of the first half and nearly going ahead, only for the positive response to turn into a nightmare as Harry Kane and Lucas Moura netted twice in as many minutes, with the latter adding a third later on.

Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville urges the club to keep faith with under-fire manager Jose Mourinho following the 3-0 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur. The more matches he wins, the more it will boost his confidence and allow him to hit a little reset button after this poor start to the season.

The second half was less impressive, as Spurs stepped up a level and put two quick goals past United, all but ending the game.

"We lost last season here against Sevilla and were booed because we deserved it, because we were not good", he said, referring to last season's Champions League round of 16 exit. In his third, Mourinho clashed with almost everyone - his players, other coaches, referees, journalists - and would eventually step down, calling the season "the worst of my career".

Even so, Rooney believes that the United squad is strong enough to mount an effective challenge to Liverpool and Manchester City, who won the title last season by a record 19-point margin, becoming the first team in English top-flight history to reach 100 points. Two minutes later Lucas Moura doubled the visitors' advantage with a clinical finish from Christian Eriksen's pass, and the Brazilian got his second of the night six minutes from time. "It is only the start of the season and we need to be consistent".

Ronaldo makes winning home debut as Juventus beat Lazio
Allegri made his first change, bringing on Douglas Costa for Bernardeschi on 60 minutes, with Juve in firm control. In their opening match last week, Lazio lost to Napoli 2-1.

"And obviously to the fans that came out tonight, we're sorry, we'll be better next week".

"We worked all week and from the tactical point of view we didn't lose, but we lost the game".

"I am sorry. You have to tell me what is the most important thing because I don't know". The first goal was a real blow, we didn't understand why, because we had the game in hand.

"I think for every single manager that is younger than him, he was the inspirational manager", Pochettino said.

It ratchets up the pressure on the United boss and his team ahead of Sunday's trip to Burnley, where left-back Shaw knows a response is needed.
