Right on schedule, Jose Mourinho is having a meltdown at Manchester United

At the final whistle, the way they were clapping was really nice for the players after a disappointing result.

Mourinho then left his seat repeating "respect, respect, respect" as he walked out.

"I care more about the result and the team".

According to the Guardian's Jamie Jackson, Manchester United officials plan to stick with Mourinho despite his team's struggles and the common knowledge that things tend to go sideways in the third year of his tenure.

Although a series of reports have suggested the United board have given the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss their backing to continue, the Daily Mail now claims the club's players and staff believe defeat to Burnley in their next game could see Mourinho sacked.

A Harry Kane header and a Lucas Moura brace helped Mauricio Pochettino's side to an emphatic win at Old Trafford, preserving their 100% start to the season and piling further pressure on a beleaguered Jose Mourinho.

"After two losses, we've got to start winning and win in a good way".

In Malcolm Turnbull's cabinet, Fletcher was the Urban Infrastructure Minister. He said Angus Taylor, a Dutton supporter, would be the new energy minister.

Mourinho summoned a positive response to the team's defeat at Brighton during a dominant first-half display against Spurs that saw Romelu Lukaku miss a gilt-edged chance before the visitors took control after the break.

"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.

Mourinho admitted after the Spurs game that he does not know his best back four, while there's also a lack of clarity in the forward department. His dark mood has continued into the season. Then came his "respect, respect, respect" rant on Monday when he railed against the media's treatment of him. Obviously, Mourinho has made a number of mistakes in his time in charge, but his players have let him down an terrible lot.

Is Mourinho even sure anymore?

De Gea, however, appeared to address those rumours by tweeting that the players have never been more "United".

Sanchez, who didn't start against Spurs, played with freedom at Arsenal but seems to be restricted at United, where he is tasked with more defensive duties, while after an impressive display in the opening-day 2-1 win over Leicester, Pogba has been a shadow of the player who starred at the World Cup for France.
