JOSE Mourinho’s Chelsea defeat on Sunday was his heaviest ever Premier League defeat, and his worst result at Stamford Bridge in any competition. N’GOLO Kante rounded off an emphatic 4-0 victory for Chelsea against Manchester United.
Manchester United now sit seventh in the Premier League, winning just four of their nine games so far, causing pressure to build on Mourinho.
Chelsea have completely destroyed us today. The players should be ashamed of themselves for this awful performance. Not acceptable.

However, some fans were as vocal in favour of Mourinho, believing that it’s just a matter of time before United find their rhythm.
Anyway, I'm sure Man United will eventually be fine. They'll spend too much to be. But they might not be title-winning fine.

Anyone calling for Jose Mourinho to go is Absolutely Rubbish. It's a rebuilding job lads.

Post-match, Mourinho allegedly criticised Chelsea manager Antonio Conte for attempting to humiliate the Manchester United players and staff by geeing up the Chelsea fans whilst the score was 4-0.
Conte has defended his actions stating, “I always show great respect for everyone, including Manchester United.” And that “The players, after a 4-0 win, deserved a great clap. It’s very normal.”
Conte's cheerleading didn't seem to be an attempt to humiliate Mourinho but a demand for Chelsea fans to match United's, who outsang them.
