Chris Sutton believes Jose Mourinho has “lost the plot” after Manchester United’s 3-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur on Monday night.

The Red Devils have made a difficult start to the Premier League season following a 3-2 defeat by Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium earlier this month.

Manchester United looked to bounce back at Old Trafford on Monday night but Spurs eased to a commanding 3-0 victory thanks to second-half goals from Harry Kane and Lucas Moura.

Mourinho was quick to remind the media assembled at his post-match media conference that he has won more Premier League titles than the other 19 managers in the English top flight.

The Portuguese head coach is coming under pressure following a run of poor results having appeared to criticise the board for their disappointing summer transfer window.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live about Manchester United’s boss Mourinho, ex-Chelsea FC striker Sutton:

“Jose Mourinho sounds like he has lost the plot with his post-match comments. We all watched this game, and they were outclassed.

I don’t think Spurs applied themselves very well early on, but when they put their foot down, they exploited a team that has no leaders.

“There is a blame game going on here and the players do not look like they want to play for him.”

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last term but ended up 19 points adrift of champions Manchester City to highlight the gap between the two clubs.

The Red Devils signed Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred, FC Porto defender Diogo Dalot and Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant in the 2018 summer transfer window.
