Graeme Souness believes Manchester United’s problems are self inflicted ahead of their home clash against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Monday night.

The Red Devils were 2-1 winners against Leicester City in their Premier League opener at Old Trafford earlier this month following goals from Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw.

Manchester United suffered a setback in their bid to win the Premier League title last weekend following a 3-2 defeat by Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium.

Jose Mourinho is coming under pressure following a disappointing summer transfer window where the Manchester United boss reportedly clashed with chief executive Ed Woodward.

Manchester United club record signing Paul Pogba is rumoured to have fallen out with Mourinho amid talk of a potential move to FC Barcelona in the summer transfer window.

Former Liverpool FC star Souness believes Manchester United’s problems are self made ahead of their home clash against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Monday night.

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last term to secure their best finish since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.

The Red Devils lost 1-0 to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley last season.
