The pressure on Mourinho is mounting fast, with United having slumped to 13th place in the table.

Jose Mourinho's side would have been encouraged by their first-half performance but were hit by a double sucker-punch early in the second period as Spurs struck twice in two minutes after the restart.

Spurs blew Manchester United away in the second half on Monday night, Harry Kane's masterful header followed two minutes later by a Lucas Moura strike. Bastian Schweinsteiger was a World Cup victor when he arrived at United from Bayern Munich, but Mourinho has moved them all on because their future was nowhere near as bright as their past.

"We have a really good group and yeah of course we'll reflect on our day off (on Tuesday) and we'll come back in on Wednesday". Everyone could feel that one goal could change the direction of the game. But with United already facing an uphill battle just to make the top four nevermind challenge for the title, time is running out for Mourinho to get the 20-time champions of England back on track.

"The first goal was a real blow, we didn't understand why, because we had the game in hand".

Man Utd news Graeme Souness says criticism of Jose Mourinho has been stupid

United face a tough trip to Burnley this weekend before the worldwide break, when a third defeat on the spin would be unthinkable. It was Kane's first goal in five appearances at Old Trafford. The midfielder added: "The fans kept pushing us, they were really behind us".

'We work very, very well during the week, we prepared the game very well, we played very well, the players had a fantastic attitude.

"And I think what's happening nearer home, Man City. A lot of our players have only had three weeks training but we want to build something special".

"But football can be cruel. It wasn't good enough tonight but we will bounce back against Burnley". After the goal we had the high press, we were playing it quicker, moving in behind and punished them when we needed to. I prefer to start badly and end well than start well and finish badly.
