Telling stats behind United's humiliating defeat to Spurs

Souness: Mourinho heading the same way as Conte

Souness: Mourinho heading the same way as Conte

Luke Shaw has apologised to the Manchester United fans after Monday's 3-0 defeat to Tottenham at Old Trafford.

That was the last reporters heard from Mourinho, as he got up from his seat and stormed out of the hall.

He is at odds with executive vice chairman Ed Woodward, who fears Martial leaving and developing along similar lines to Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah, two other players Mourinho discarded.

The Red Devils hadn't lost by a three-goal margin in any competition since their 3-0 defeat to Manchester City in March 2014.

"Keep trying. We lost last season here against Sevilla and were booed because we deserved it, because we were not good", he said. "I already knew then that they are great players, but since then they have made great progress and now are in the top 5 in the world", said Van Der Vaart. He even said he thought his team could have been up 3-0 in the first half, while also applauding the fans. And as impressive as they were on Monday, this Tottenham side is still not playing up to its considerable ability despite starting the 2018-19 campaign with three consecutive wins. Moura grabbed a second with six minutes left.

Taliban has reportedly rejected the call for ceasefire during Eid Al-Adha
Rahimi said that after Afghan security forces freed 149, the insurgents were still holding 21 hostages from the buses. The Taliban didn't immediately react and its spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahed, didn't respond to calls seeking comment.

When asked what it does to natural centre-backs to be overlooked while Ander Herrera is used in the defensive line, he tried a very thinly-veiled diversion tactic.

"They are an emerging team, a team that isn't going to go away for a long time, if you look at the age and the quality they've got in their squad. And you want to try to transform this press conference in the situation of "Let's blame the guy". Yes, the first-half display was full of objective, energy and intensity in a way that the 3-2 loss to Brighton had not been.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has hailed chief scout Steve Hitchin for advising the club to sign Lucas Moura after the Brazilian winger put in a match-winning display against Manchester United.

But the tension was bubbling and by the time he reached his press conference, he was ready to explode.

Spurs hit three unanswered second-half goals to leave Mourinho up against it.
