The Theatre of Dreams was turned to one of nightmares on Monday night as Tottenham Hotspur made nonsense of the Red Devils; beating them flat in their own backyard.

One of the arguments that has been put forward is that Jose Mourinho has shot himself on the foot by solely building his team around one-time world’s most expensive player, Paul Pogba.

Though Pogba is not shouldering the blame for the Spurs defeat, he confesses that he and his teammates didn’t even know what came upon them last night when they were beaten 3-0 by Spurs.

"Even we don't understand what happened. We started the game really well, we conceded two goals in the second-half," he told reporters post-match.

"The first goal was a real blow, we didn't understand why, because we had the game in hand. One goal, two…we kept pushing, we had chances, and we conceded the third. The fans kept pushing us, they were really behind us. We feel really sorry for them, very disappointed, we wanted to do better.

"I think it was an undeserved defeat for us. In our desire, in everything we put into it. But football can be cruel. We just have to bounce back. It won't be easy, but it's just the start of the season. I prefer to start badly and end well than start well and finish badly.

"It's bizarre. Today, we were determined, we started well, and in the end we lost 3-0. It's a shock. We have to keep going, we mustn't worry. We must work. We are still Manchester United and we won't give up on anything."

United have now made their worst start to a league season in 26 years but Pogba has called for calm ahead of Sunday's trip to Burnley.
