Don't write off Manchester United or its manager Jose Mourinho just yet, says Wayne Rooney.

Harry Kane believes Tottenham Hotspur's 3-0 win at Manchester United on Monday has laid down a marker regarding their title challenge.

With pressure reaching a boiling point on Mourinho's job status at Old Trafford, expect his responses to only get better.

Ever since preseason, when the Portuguese coach adopted a pessimistic and irritable tone, neither the fans nor the board have been happy.

"I think if you do what I did before the game, which was looking at the news and looking at Myanmar, I think that's hard times".

"Do you know what this means?" a visibly upset Mourinho, holding up three fingers in a way that can be interpreted as an obscene gesture in England, rhetorically asked one journalist.

Spurs were the only team in the Premier League that did not sign a player ahead of the 2018-19 season, yet the lack of additions has not hindered them so far.

Maung Maung, a military representative in Parliament, said the army doesn't have any comment on the United Nations report. Aung Kyaw Zaw, has already been singled out for USA sanctions as punishment for the attacks on Rohingya.

"We lost last season here against Sevilla (in the Champions League) and were booed because we deserved, because we were not good, because we were not unsafe enough, because Sevilla deserved to win the match, we were booed and deservedly".

"They didn't and then because of the way the game ended with the third goal, it looks worse than it was".

If United is to push for the title and do well in the Champions League - the draw for the group stage is Thursday - then Pogba is going to have replicate the consistency of performance he displayed during France's successful World Cup campaign.

'I hope we come through it sooner rather than later and I'm sure we will in the next game'.

Despite the result, Mourinho said "by strategy we didn't lose, tactically we didn't lose, but we lost the game". And there's also Mourinho's despair about a defence that has already let in seven goals in the first three games - the most United have conceded in 49 years.

"A big thank you to the fans for the way they supporting us", Shaw told MUTV. "It was incredible. At the final whistle, the way they clapped the team was really respectful, and that was nice for us as players to receive after a disappointing result".
