Mauricio Pochettino's team were not even at their slick best against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday but came away with a clinical 3-0 victory that maintained their 100 percent start to the season.

No one would have predicted that at the end of last season, although, there is Mourinho's curious history of "third-season syndrome".

"Mourinho knows what he's doing and knows how to win titles", said Rooney, who played under Mourinho for a season when United won the Europa League and the League Cup in 2017. Except, you know, that problematic final score. That also means three Premiership (titles) and I won more Premiership alone than the other 19 managers together.

"When I was assistant at United, Burnley was one of the games where I was setting up the cones and I was thinking 'I wouldn't mind playing today".

In his third, Mourinho clashed with almost everyone - his players, other coaches, referees, journalists - and would eventually step down, calling the season "the worst of my career".

Tottenham fans had chanted "You're getting sacked (fired) in the morning".

It was a match, ' chief prosecutor Jan Eland said last week when Dutch police announced they had identified a suspect. When his family reported him as missing, Dutch and French police searched his cabin in the Vosges region.

If United is to push for the title and do well in the Champions League - the draw for the group stage is Thursday - then Pogba is going to have replicate the consistency of performance he displayed during France's successful World Cup campaign.

Manchester United searches for its second win of the Premier League season when it takes on Burnley on Sunday. If United loses it would trail leader Liverpool by six points. We started the game really well then we conceded two goals in the second half.

Romelu Lukaku had numerous chances to give United what at the time would have been a deserved lead, including dragging across the face of an open goal after rounding Lloris. It is early in the season, we have got a lot of games to come and we have got to get points.

Kane's 50th-minute opener was soon added to as Christian Eriksen ghosted behind to send in a cross directed home by Moura. They weren't too bad in the first half, but collapsed after the break, eventually losing 3-0.

"Like I said, I am sorry for the fans, not just the ones here but the ones at home that have been watching and supporting us".

'I was there on Monday as a United fan, ' said former Red Devils favourite Giggs.
