Manchester United 0-3 Tottenham Hotspur: Quickfire goals pile pressure on Jose Mourinho

27 Aug

Tottenham finally broke their Old Trafford voodoo as two quickfire goals from Harry Kane and Lucas Moura piled the pressure on Jose Mourinho.

The game was decided in three dramatic minutes. Kane’s perfectly-header in the 50th minute came just 132 seconds before Moura doubled the Spurs lead.

Kane and Moura were the match-winners

And despite plenty of United pressure, Moura added a brilliant third for Spurs late-on, beating Chris Smalling before firing a powerful strike past David De Gea.

It brings an emphatic end to five-straight defeats at Old Trafford for the north Londoners, who continued their perfect start to the Premier League season with their biggest away win against United for 46 years.

Mourinho is under pressure

Mourinho’s camp looks considerably gloomier after a second defeat in as many games, both in which they have conceded three goals through sloppy defending.

The unrelenting noise surrounding his negative impact at the club will only grow louder.

Star man

Lucas Moura

In the absence of Heung-Min Son, Moura has proved his worth with three goals in two games.

Not only that, he was the game’s most dangerous and influential player in the goalless first-half, too.

Moment of the match

Romelu Lukaku chance

Romelu Lukaku somehow found the time to spurn a glorious chance in between the two Tottenham goals.

It could’ve been so different if that found the bottom corner.
