Jose Mourinho was not going down without putting up a fight in the post-match press conference even after his team suffered the heaviest defeat under his tenure.

Manchester United was defeated by a rampant Tottenham Hotspurs 3-0 and Mourinho wore a desolate look at the end of the match but remained defiant in the presser. 

"Do you know what this means? 3-0. That also means three Premiership (titles) and I won more Premiership alone than the other 19 managers together. Three for me and two for them," Mourinho said as he pointed three fingers to the media.

On the other hand, it was complete domination by the visitors, as Harry Kane and Lucas Moura struck twice within a span of three-minute early in the second half. Moura then sealed the deal with a decisive goal with six minutes left in the match.

United had beaten Spurs 1-0, 1-0, 1-0 and 3-0 in their last four league meetings at Old Trafford, but this reversal in many ways has put Mourinho's position in jeopardy.

Tottenham fans chanted "You're getting sacked (fired) in the morning" right through the match even as the Portuguese waved to the fans after the match was over.

It should be noted that this was only the second time in Premier League history that Manchester United had lost more than one of its opening three matches. They had started brilliantly against Leicester but then dropped points against Brighton and now against Spurs. 

Despite the loss, the manager praised the fans for their attitude and continuous support.

"All our fans don't read papers, all our fans don't watch television, all our fans are more intelligent than that and answered in an amazing way. I don't think it's normal for a team to lose at home and (the fans) react like that," Mourinho said.
