Comments:

League position: 13th This was Manchester United's 50th home defeat in the Premier League (played 502, won 364). This 3-0 defeat became José Mourinho's heaviest-ever home defeat in all competitions in his managerial career. The inaugural season of 1992-93 was the only previous season that United had lost more than one of their opening three games of a Premier League season. The Red Devils had now conceded one goal in the first-half of their ten home games in the Premier League so far in 2018. Only the bottom two in the table, Huddersfield Town and West Ham United (nine each), had now conceded more goals than Manchester United (seven) after three games of this Premier League season.

Comments:

League position: 2nd Tottenham Hotspur had now won their opening three games of a Premier League season for a fifth time and for the first time since 2009-10. Harry Kane had scored one goal in nine previous league and cup appearances against Manchester United. He scored his first goal at Old Trafford in this game. After going over seven hours without scoring a goal at Old Trafford in the Premier League (433 minutes), Tottenham Hotspur scored two goals in less than three minutes (133 seconds). Lucas Moura became the first visiting player to score two goals in a Premier League game at Old Trafford since Sergio Agüero in Manchester City’s 4-2 loss in April 2015. This was Mauricio Pochettino's 200th win in all competitions in his managerial career (124 with Tottenham Hotspur). Érik Lamela was originally named amongst the substitutes before suffering an injury in the pre-match warm-up. Luke Amos took his place on the bench.
