Sean Dyche insists Burnley will regroup after Manchester United defeat

Sean Dyche insists Burnley will regroup after Manchester United defeat

Manchester United have endured a hard start to the new season as Jose Mourinho's men have been defeated twice in the first three matches including a 0-3 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.

Rashford had earlier won a penalty that was wasted by United midfielder Paul Pogba, who saw his effort saved by Joe Hart.

"So fast, so creative, even I can say so attractive, but we lost three chances in the first 10 minutes and I think that was the mirror of the game", Mourinho continued.

"And in the last 10/15 minutes even when we played at less speed and at less intensity for the counter-attack I thought the performance was very good".

The manager was quick to heap praise onto Sunday's opposition, recognising the strength they possessed despite the recent troubles, which included a banner being flown over Turf Moor stating some United fans disgust at Executive Vice Chairman Ed Woodward.

Full-back Dalot was one of just three signings made by United during the transfer window, with their lack of investment a source of much frustration for Mourinho.

But what had been an unqualified United success to that point was somewhat diminished when Rashford headbutted Bardsley after being cynically fouled by the 33-year-old former United defender.

"Harsh? I don't know".

You can't exactly blame United for taking that stance either with the Premier League season still young and the Red Devils counting themselves unlucky vs Spurs.

"He is one of those players who love to remain involved in the game".

United will return to action with a trip to Watford after the global break.

There's plenty of reason to suggest the situation at Old Trafford has been blown out of proportion and Mourinho has plenty of time to turns things around. It was puzzling however, that Lukaku didn't step up and take the penalty, that was eventually missed by Paul Pogba, as that would have given him his first United hattrick if he would have managed to put it home.

"We won 2-0 but we also had many chances to score, but I am happy with 2-0". And good since the first ball we touched. We have to stick together and play like we did last week in the first half. Mourinho further said, "It was a kid and a very experienced man. Bardsley's been in the game for 20 years and Marcus is a naive boy".

"They've had a few question marks, but when good players are tested, from the outside looking in, usually they react, and they did".
