Ryan Giggs has challenged Manchester United to beat Burnley on Sunday to “shut up a few people”.

The Red Devils have made a poor start to the season after collecting three points from their opening three Premier League games.

Manchester United were 2-1 winners against Leicester City in their season opener at Old Trafford courtesy of goals from Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw.

The 20-time English champions slumped to 3-2 loss to Brighton and Hove Albion in their second fixture to lose ground on their title rivals.

The Red Devils suffered a 3-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Monday night to fall further behind Premier League leaders Liverpool FC.

Mourinho has been facing speculation linking former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane with his position over the past month or so.

Manchester United are six points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool FC, Chelsea FC and Tottenham Hotspur in the early stages of the title race.

The Red Devils will make the trip to Burnley at Turf Moor in the Premier League on Sunday in search of a much-needed win.

Former Manchester United winger Giggs urged the Red Devils to silence their critics at Burnley this weekend.

“It is a time for the fans to stick together and get behind the club and get behind the team and the manager and coaching staff,” Giggs is quoted as saying.

“It is a huge club with a huge following, talented players. Burnley is a fantastic game to get rid of all that negativity around the club.

“That is what I would be looking forward to, looking forward to Sunday and shutting a few people up.

“Purely speaking as a fan I hope we get through it sooner rather than later and I am sure we will eventually.”
