Bryan Robson is fully expecting to see Manchester United bounce back from their tricky start under Jose Mourinho this season.

The Red Devils slumped to a surprise 3-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Monday night as they suffered a blow to their title hopes.

Manchester United have struggled to find consistent form in the Premier League this season and their loss to Tottenham came after a shock 3-2 defeat by Brighton before that.

The Red Devils are already under intense pressure after having been left six points behind leaders Liverpool FC after just three games so far this season.

Despite their defeat by Spurs on Monday night, Manchester United fans showed their appreciation for their side’s performance against the north London club after the game.

And Robson feels that Manchester United’s fans can play a key role in helping the Red Devils to get their season back on track.

Speaking to MUTV, Robson said: “That is what is great about Man United fans, since I have been at the club, at least.

“When you are having a bad time they are still behind you, and if you are having a good time they don’t get carried away. The fans are always terrific and I thought that was a great response from them.

“When you get beat 3-0 at home, it is good to have the fans staying loyal and true to you because it is a long, hard season. There is a long way to go yet.”

Robson added that he feels that it is only a matter of time under the Red Devils prove their critics wrong.

He continued: “For 30 years, the media has wanted to hammer us because of Sir Alex’s success.

“But then we won the FA Cup and then Jose comes in, and wins three trophies in his first year.

“So to not win anything last season and begin this season with two defeats in the first three games, the media are loving it, because they have been used to seeing Manchester United achieve success so much.”

Manchester United will look to get back to winning ways in the top flight when they take on Burnley on Sunday.
