Jamie Redknapp believes Jose Mourinho is facing the biggest game of his managerial career ahead if Manchester United’s home clash against Tottenham Hotspur next Monday.

The Red Devils suffered a 3-2 loss to Brighton and Hove Albion to suffer their first defeat of the new Premier League campaign in their second fixture of the campaign.

Manchester United are three points adrift of all-conquering Manchester City to leave the Red Devils with ground to make up on Pep Guardiola’s men.

The Citizens finished 19 points ahead of runners up Manchester United last term to highlight the widening gap between the derby rivals.

Tottenham were 3-1 winners against Fulham at Wembley at the weekend as Harry Kane opened his account for the new season.

Former Liverpool FC captain Redknapp believes Mourinho is facing a vital game in his career ahead of the visit of Spurs at Old Trafford next week.

“Tottenham next Monday is now one of the biggest games of his United career. Spurs have started strongly but are yet to score at Old Trafford under Mauricio Pochettino,” Redknapp told the Daily Mail.

“A morale-boosting win could be just what Mourinho needs to keep the wolf from the door.”

Manchester United signed Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred, Portuguese defender Diogo Dalot and Stoke City shot stopper Lee Grant in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013 and Manchester United don’t appear any closer to ending their drought under Mourinho.

Manchester United lost 1-0 to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final last term.
