Not the special one anymore? Time for Mourinho to go? See the players rating in yesterday #MUNTOT
Manchester United and their relationship with worry continues as they were thrashed 3-0 by the visitors Tottenham Hotspurs.
United came out with a three man defence and with as much as six changes from their previous team which played at Brighton. With the defence completely changed and the entry of Jose’s fav Matic. But the real surprise was playing Ander Herrera as a centre back (RCB).
It could so easily have been Toby Alderweireld playing up their along with Smalling and Phil Jones.The scenario would easily have been so different if his transfer to Manchester United would have completed in the transfer season.
The trick seemed to work in the first half when United looked solid and the chances were being created. The half ended with either side not being able to score,but as soon as the second half started The Spurs looked a new leaf. Spurs exploited the the space left between luke shaw and Phil jones with Eriksen running in to the gap and providing the much needed deliveries into the box. Phil jones looked troubled with an injury as Harry Kane scored with an easy header. The second goal coming minutes after when Lucas Moura killed the game with a goal from the same angle created by Eriksen and his cross.
With Ed woodward being present at the Theatre of Dreams the rift between the Manager and him doesnt seem to be reducing. With United already in the chase to catch up their key opponents Jose or the management will have to take some key decisions.
The stretford end in the first half did their best to support the team and manager with chants of ‘Jose Mourinho, Jose Mourinho’ and The manager looked energetic standing at the sideline ,cheering his players. The spurs fans response to this was seen in the second half with their chants of ‘You are not the special one anymore’.Surely the words would be ringing in the ears of Jose and Woodward.
