Jose Mourinho’s third-season meltdown appears to be well and truly underway.

After a toxic pre-season, Manchester United have suffered their worst start to a league campaign for 25 years.

Could Pochettino replace Mourinho at United?

The Red Devils were left staring at back-to-back Premier League losses after Tottenham inflicted Mourinho’s heaviest-ever home defeat with a 3-0 hammering at Old Trafford.

And bookmakers have responded to the apparent crisis by slashing their odds on the Special One departing before Christmas.

Gareth Southgate – 20/1

Didier Deschamps – 16/1

Massimiliano Allegri – 14/1

Leonardo Jardim – 10/1

Mauricio Pochettino – 10/1

Laurent Blanc – 8/1

Antonio Conte – 5/1

Zinedine Zidane – 5/2
