Tottenham Hotspur inflicted a second Premier League defeat of the season on Manchester United on Monday night when they relieved to a 0-0 Victory at Old Trafford
Two goals in the second half were enough for the Spurs to take command after a goalless first half, in which the hosts had decided the match.
Harry Kane went home Kieran Trippier corner after 50 minutes to bring the Spurs into the lead. Lucas Moura quickly doubled his lead as he passed Christian Eriksen's pass to goalkeeper David De Gea.
The Brazilian finished the game with six minutes of playtime. He took a pass from Kane and sped past Smalling before confidently passing De Gea.
Mourinho's Lack of Ideas Suspended
Jose Mourinho caused a stir with his team selection as he joined Phil Jones and Chris Smalling recalled in the backcourt three alongside midfielder Ander Herrera. Eric Bailly was eliminated altogether from the squad, while Victor Lindelof remained on the bench.
BBC Sport Simon Stein offered an explanation for the lineup:
Simon Stone @ sistoney67
Martial, Mata, Bailly and Pereira not even on the bench. Debt split for the last week?
Mourinho's team selection was a real game of chance and one that backfired spectacularly. United was defensively shaky, with Herrera heavily in charge of the second goal:
Former footballer Danny Higginbotham highlighted her defense issues:
Danny Higginbotham @ Higginbotham05  Offside 3 and a middle middle are about problems. Too easy for Spurs second
Also Mourinho had few ideas how United could come back into the game after the 0: 2-deficit. Alexis Sanchez arrived for Herrera, but made little impression.
Marouane Fellaini was also predictable as Mourinho sought a more direct approach. Adam Crafton on Daily Mail criticized his approach:
Adam Crafton @ AdamCrafton_  Man United needed three goals and Mourinho called to Fellaini while Rashford was sitting on the bench and Mata and Martial were not in the squad. Seems to be a fitting epitaph.
There is a growing sense of uneasiness about Alt Trafford with Mourinho failing to get the best out of a troop full of attacking talents like Sanchez,  Romelu Lukaku Marcus Rashford Juan Mata and Anthony Martial  It is also known that Mourinho entered his third season in Alt  Trafford arrives and at this time has the reputation of self-destruction in his term of office:

Per  Opta This result was Mourinho's biggest home defeat as a manager in a contest. Two defeats from the first three Premier League games have also shown a worrying lack of ideas Mourinho.
Shaw earns England spot before Rose
One of the few bright spots for Manchester United on Monday night was the performance of left-back Luke Shaw, who slightly outshined his opponent Danny Rose.
The 23-year-old has made it back to the team this season and impressed in the opening games.
He was one of United's better players at Old Trafford in a performance full of energy, drive and willingness to join the attack
Football writer Andy Mitten shared his thoughts:
19659019] @ AndyMitten 19659013] Had not predicted this past month when he was skinned by a San Jose reserve and it's v early, but Luke Shaw MU's best player in 18-19.
His performance also contrasted starkly with Rose, who was He made his first appearance of the new campaign for Spurs.
Rose flirted with Dis Aster in the first half on a careless resort to Hugo Lloris was intercepted by Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian would have had to open the scoring, but he shot far off.
Football Correspondent Kieran Canning said Shaw earned a place in Gareth Southgates England squad:
19659012] @ KieranCanning
Based on the first 50 minutes would be Amazing Shaw shows the kind of form that moved Manchester United to invest heavily in him back in 2014. The challenge for the defender will now be level and his place in Mourinho
Lucas earns his place
Lucas was Tottenham's best player on Monday night, earning his two goals. He took both confident and now has three for the season after he also found the grid behind Fulham.
The Brazilian struggled to take effect when he arrived from Paris Saint-Germain in January. Now, however, he sees calm and hungry to be successful in the Premier League.
Ligue 1s Matt Spiro feels he will thrive at Spurs:
Matt Spiro @ matspiro
] Lucas Moura was reluctant to quit #PSG, but he was right to take a step down. He will get the playing time he needs at #THFC and looks like he could play a key role in front of Kane
Lucas got a real chance to get a place in the starting eleven with Heung-Min Son away at the Asian Games. His pace, ability to play the final, and his willingness to run with the defenders cause all sorts of problems and gives the Spurs an additional attack advantage.
Son had a strong offensive last season, scoring 12 goals in the Premier League. In this form, he will have difficulty getting back into the team before Lucas.
How's it going on?
Manchester United travels to Turf Moor to play at Burnley on Sunday in the Premier League. Spurs are also away from home on Sundays as they make the short trip to Watford.
