Premier League rumors: Manchester United firing Jose Mourinho?

"It's time for the fans to stick together, to get behind the club, the team and the manager and the coaching staff".

The latest, a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of Tottenham, was a disappointing and worrisome answer to a shock 3-2 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion the week before.

Giggs had four games as United interim manager at the end of the 2013-14 campaign before spending two seasons as Louis van Gaal's assistant at Old Trafford.

But the pressure has seemingly gotten to Mourinho already as he demonstratively mocked the media that asked him questions after Monday's match.

When a journalist tried to interject on Monday, Mourinho said: "Just to finish, do you know what the result was?"

Meanwhile, every paper in existence (probably) reported on his spectacular post-match press conference, in which he called for "respect" while highlighting the three Premier League titles he has won. Three for me and two for them. The only way to do that is to come to places like this and get the three points.

United have offered a new five-year deal to Martial and are hopeful that the Frenchman will sign it even though Mourinho does not want the forward at the club.

The Irish bookmaker tweeted: "Manchester United were a shambles tonight". Past year though saw United go an entire season without silverware, a rare occurrence for such a proud club.

Meanwhile, defender Marcos Rojo is set to return to training on Wednesday after missing the start of the season with an injury picked up playing for Argentina at the World Cup.

Per the Daily Mail, Mourinho's odds to be sacked before Christmas have been slashed from 7/4 to 8/13.
