Spurs rocket past Utd
The bank holiday will be remembered for 3 things, Notting Hill Carnival (yes indeed), Spurs and Jose Mourinho. Tottenham made the trip up to Old Trafford chasing a 3rd consecutive win for the season thus far. After the defeat to Brighton there was a lot of anticipation from United fans as they cheered their team on in the theatre of dreams in hopes of victory against Spurs.
Although United dominated play in the early stages of the game and quite possibly had the better half. It was Spurs who netted early in the second half through a Kane header as the England marksman expertly directed his header into the roof of the net from a Trippier corner. This was shortly followed by a Lucas Moura goal who later added a third after giving Smalling the runaround ending any hope of a United revival. Spurs walked away with a 3-0 win at Old Trafford (now this doesn’t happen often, please pinch me).
Man Utd were a shadow of what English Football had become accustomed to and you can’t help but ask, where did it all go wrong? Fingers are being pointed at the Manager and whilst his team looked in need of impetus Mourinho was in great form. He clapped the fans at the end of the match (looked like he was saying goodbye) before reminding journalists at the post match press conference of his 3 Premier League titles. Love him or loath him……..you will put some respect on his name (hahaha!!). It is very early to talk of Mourinho getting the sack after just 3 games but the special one may not be special anymore.
Elsewhere, Man City were held to a 1-1 draw against Wolves which Liverpool capitalised on by earning a hard fought 3 points in the 1-0 win against Brighton. Arsenal are finally off the mark thanks to goals from Monreal and Danny Welbeck in their 2-1 victory against London rivals West Ham. The Hammers are rooted at the bottom of the table and still yet to register any points this season.
Watford maintain their 100% record in their 2-1 win against Crystal Palace whilst Chelsea won away at Newcastle 2-1 as the magical Hazard inspired them to their third win of the season. The early pacesetters seem to be in fine form and Liverpool are looking stronger than their rivals.Can Man Utd and Mourinho bounce back? Will City recover from their blip? and What surprises can Watford provide? It’s a long season and we are loving the entertainment.
The “Special One” reminds us of the 3 championships!!
