Under-pressure Man United prepares for must-win clash against Burnley - Amoré

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, is under vast pressure to return to winning ways following his side's disappointing defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Monday, August 27.

He added that last season was "one of his greatest achievements" after leading his side to second place finish on the table.

Or was Mourinho just deflecting from the fact that he lacks any answer to the most obvious question facing him - how to sort out a defence that has leaked six goals in two games and was opened up easily by Spurs after the break?

"We've got a really good group, a good group of hard workers and incredible talents everywhere you look on the field".

Dyche said: "My respect for people like Jose is because I am a young manager, learning the game, and these people have done enormous amounts in the game, for the game".

"The first corner they had comes the goal", Shaw told MUTV.

Publicly, United continued to back Mourinho on Tuesday and there is little chance of him walking away from a £15million-a-year contract.Woodward does not want to make a third change in less than four-and-a-half years but will come under enormous pressure if United suffer a third straight defeat on Sunday.

"Another silly, stupid goal".

"We're just in August".

"At the final whistle as well, the way they were clapping the team was I think really respectful and really nice for us as players to receive after a disappointing result".

"Mentally, physically he is stronger; tactically he has a better understanding and we are very happy for him".

Mourinho splashed out £89m to bring him back two years ago but he is yet to justify the massive price tag, which was a world record at the time.

With all the whispers of discontent coming out of Old Trafford, reported unrest between Jose Mourinho and a vintage collection of his squad, and successive defeats in the Premier League, the England global believes this fixture couldn't have come at a better time. "Not for me, for the team which is the only thing that matters".

"We need to pick up points, especially with two losses now".

"We did a good 60 or 70 minutes (against Spurs) and should have been winning 2-0 at halftime, but we didn't".

The latest report suggests that the Portuguese may well have lost the dressing room, with the players starting to talk about his potential replacement and believing that the end of his tenure may be near.
