Jose Mourinho’s time in charge of Manchester United started off pretty well, but it seems as soon as the harder challenges came forward, the house of cards collapsed.
With all due respect to the Hornets, Watford isn’t one of those tougher challenges and yet Manchester United once again played poorly, and can’t have too many complaints about the 3-1 loss… although Mourinho attributed some of the blame to the match officials, as well singling out individual performances.
The poor period is receiving headlines around Europe, and France’s SFR Sport (via L’Equipe) spoke to Marouane Fellaini, who admitted: “We can say it’s a little crisis, because a club like Manchester United cannot lose three games.”
L’Equipe point out that Mourinho hasn’t lost three games in a row since his Porto days. But if a penalties cup defeat to Stoke City can be counted, then Mourinho lost three in a row last October, with West Ham, Stoke and Liverpool all coming away the better.
Manchester United’s next match is against Northampton, so the run surely can’t become four losses in a row… can it?!
