Manchester United's Alexis Sanchez in fitness battle to face Tottenham

Alexis Sanchez

I thought Jose's stuff on city was.that's what I expect from Jose.

A few hours after Manchester City strolled to a 6-1 win over Huddersfield, United showed the gulf that now exists to its fierce rival by succumbing meekly to its first loss of the season on Sunday (NZT). He's a very tough boy and is rarely injured.

"He is in a very hard place, isn't he?" "We don't want to lose two games in a row so we're going to have to get ready (for Spurs) and play much, much better", Pogba insisted.

Brighton will be hoping to get their 2018/2019 season up and running when they welcome Man United to the Amex stadium on Sunday evening.

But with just seven days to prepare for Tottenham's visit to Old Trafford, the 29-year-old - who will undergo further tests this week - has a battle to be fit. I think he'll be gone before Christmas'.

Pogba raised his voice as many times as Mourinho did in front of the microphones to criticise the mistakes of a United side that have started the campaign without a sense of real defensive stability.

United lacked leadership across the pitch with captain Paul Pogba a shadow of the player who had impressed the previous week in the win over Leicester City.

With Alexis Sanchez missing the game through injury, Mourinho introduced Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard at half-time, but there was little improvement to their attacking display and Pogba's finish from the spot came too late to rescue a result. "He's so inconsistent", he said.

Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri: 'Horrible' 15-minute spell shows Blues must improve
I think in this way of football, if you don't cover the distances, you are in trouble. In quality we are going very well, but in quantity we have to improve.

Having been forced to look elsewhere, Real Madrid did end up bolstering the goalkeeping department, as Thibaut Courtois was signed from Chelsea.

After Spurs, United face Burnley, Watford, Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United in September.

Mourinho should be able to welcome back Nemanja Matic and Antonio Valencia against Mauricio Pochettino's side.

Graeme Souness reckons Jose Mourinho is in a precarious situation at Manchester United after his side slipped to an unexpected 3-2 defeat to Brighton.

"When I speak about individual performances and I'm critical about my players, you do not accept it", he said.

"It is a club trying to grow, trying to win titles".

The advert also showed Sanchez's naked torso along with the slogan, "More power, more seduction, more attitude, more success, more JJO".
