Jose Mourinho ‘one loss from the sack’ at Man Utd

Liverpool legend Steve Nicol reckons Jose Mourinho's time as Manchester United manager will be over by the end of this week.

The latest, a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of Tottenham, was a disappointing and worrisome answer to a shock 3-2 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion the week before.

But the pressure has seemingly gotten to Mourinho already as he demonstratively mocked the media that asked him questions after Monday's match.

The Wales manager was a 19-year-old who had just been crowned PFA Young Player of the Year before Sheffield United and Everton gave Ferguson's side a rude awakening at the start of the 1992-93 season.

"I think physically, I've said before, you've got to stay fit all-year round nowadays just because of the standard of the Premier League and the Champions League", said Kane.

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique believes Manchester City will retain their Premier League title and has backed his former manager Pep Guardiola to get the job done. "Three for me. Two for them".

The Citizens were stopped in their tracks over the weekend after failing to beat newly-promoted Wolves, though Nuno Espirito Santo's men were rather fortuitous to come away with a point after Willy Boly appeared to score with his arm. He also added an FA Cup, Community Shield and three League Cups during his tenure in West London.

United fans - and the players, apparently - feel it's only a matter of time before Mourinho faces the chop should he fail to turn things around.

A reportedly strained relationship with his manager has seen plenty of speculation suggesting Martial's future may lie away from United.

Per the Daily Mail, Mourinho's odds to be sacked before Christmas have been slashed from 7/4 to 8/13.
