Manchester United suffered their second defeat in three league games when they lost 3-0 to Tottenham Hotspur on Monday evening.
Harry Kane’s header followed by a brace from Lucas Moura was sufficient for the north London club to walk away from Old Trafford with three points.
Paul Pogba spoke to RMC Sport after the match and the France international stressed the importance of bouncing back against Burnley following an “undeserved defeat” for his side on Monday evening.
“The fans were still pushing us… We’re really sorry for them, really disappointed, we wanted to do better. I think it was an undeserved defeat for us,” Pogba explained.
“… we just have to bounce back, it will not be easy, but it’s the beginning of the season. It’s a shock, we’ll continue, we must not worry. We will not let anything go.”
Unfortunately for the 20-time English champions, they started the first half on a positive note and had a better possession and more shots on goal than their opponents, but weren’t able to make it count. The World Cup winner explained two quick goals in the second half was a “big hit” for his side.
“We were really good in the game, we took two goals in the second half. It was a big hit. I didn’t understand because we had the game in hand. One goal, two goals… we continued to push, we had opportunities, but we conceded the third [goal],” he added.
It’s the first time since 1992 that the Red Devils have lost twice in the opening three games in the Premier League, while the loss was Jose Mourinho’s biggest home defeat in all competitions.
