Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho reacts angrily to questions after Tottenham defeat

Jose Mourinho will hope to put an end to the difficult spell that Manchester United find themselves in this season as they make the short trip to Burnley in this afternoon’s Premier League encounter.

United come into the tie off the back of consecutive defeats against Brighton and Tottenham, which leaves Mourinho’s side nine points off the pace ahead of this encounter. There also remains discontent between the United manager and the club’s executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, with a planned flyover organised by fans set to appear this afternoon protesting against the latter.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, United have lost Phil Jones to injury and are not yet able to select Marcos Rojo, leaving Mourinho short on defensive options, while Burnley are likely to be without Johann Berg Gudmundsson due to a hamstring injury, with teenager Dwight McNeil likely to deputise in his place.

United fans weren't a happy bunch during the transfer window and that has continued on into their difficult start in the Premier League. 

This has now just flown over Turf Moor pre-kick off.

Meanwhile, at Vicarage Road where there's a lot more positivity Watford have a great chance to create more history...

United are on the front foot early on and good work from Lukaku sets up Lingard who's shot looks like it's gone in but it hits the stantion and ripples the net from behind.

4 mins: Positive start at Vicarage Road from both sides too with Tottenham doing most of the running. 

Sun kissed pitch and two teams with full confidence. Should be a good game.

United are donning their brand new pink away kit and the fans are making themselves heard loud and clear in their support for Mourinho. 

It's been a really bright start, not just from the kits.
