2:05 John Cross says why he thinks Jose Mourinho has lost his 'special' status

Their latest defeat was a 2-0 loss at home to Manchester United on Sunday but they now have two weeks to recharge their energy levels during the worldwide break.

Paul Pogba had the opportunity to put the match out of sight but had his penalty saved by Joe Hart and Marcus Rashford's red card left a sour taste in the mouth.

After appearing in court in 2017, the Manchester United manager said "I did not answer, I did not argue".

"He played very well for us, scored two important goals", said Mourinho.

Mourinho is well aware that there are only so many column inches to fill and the more the press focus on his interviews, the less they will scrutinise his players and their performances.

Executive vice-chairman Woodward has been the focus of many supporters" ire and a fan-funded plane flew over Turf Moor describing him as "a specialist in failure'.

Given the noisy protest flying overhead before kick-off, United showed impressive focus from the off to secure their second win of the season and alleviate some pressure on Mourinho.

"Bardsley's been in the game for 20 years and Marcus is a naive boy".

"I know what I have to do. They still had some breakaway chances even when they went down to ten men, and in the end I've got no complaints", Dyche conceded. "The result shouldn't have been open until the last minute".

Speaking to ManUtd.com, Mourinho said: "The pace with the ball and the organisation without the ball [was very good]".

Mourinho's job isn't thought to be under threat despite the poor start to the campaign, with United hoping to build on Sunday's victory over the Clarets after the worldwide break.

"For sure, I'm going to become a better player here".

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.

The Portuguese said the right attitude for the Burnley match had its roots in the positive way the Old Trafford crowd had responded to the loss to Spurs.

But Schmeichel, who won five Premier League titles during the Scot's time in charge at Old Trafford, believes there is still enough for the fans to be excited by. United ran out 2-0 winners with a confident and professional performance which saw them created chance after chance after chance against a poor looking Burnley team.

"He could have scored more but maybe he was a bit exhausted, playing with 10 men".
