Manchester United fans were left flabbergasted on Monday, as their side suffered a 3-0 loss to Tottenham, bringing their total tally to three points in three games this campaign.
This is particularly worrisome, as the Red Devils played really well in the first half and almost had a chance to go one up, and were expected to be the better side in the second half.
However, a quick goal from Harry Kane and a decisive brace from Lucas Moura sealed the three points in favor of Spurs. Clearly, United supporters weren’t the only ones surprised by the results.
Paul Pogba revealed the following after the match (RMC Sport): “‘Even we don’t understand. We started the game really well, and we concede two goals in the second half. That was tough to take.”
He went on to add: “The first goal, we did not understand, because we had the match in our hands. One goal, two goals… we continued to push, we had chances, and then we concede the third. Our fans were still pushing us. We are really sorry for them, and really disappointed, we wanted to do better.”
A sentiment that is bound to be felt by most Red Devils was echoed by the French midfielder, as he concluded: “I think that this is a defeat that we did not deserve. When you want something… football can be cruel.
“We just have to bounce back. It will not be easy but it is only the beginning of the season. We are going to continue, you should not be worried. We are Manchester United and we will never give up.”
United next face Burnley on Sunday, which will be an away game that fans, players, and Jose Mourinho alike will be desperate to win, and in resounding fashion.
