Man United tasted their first defeat of the season at Brighton & Hove Albion before being hammered by Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs.

The FC panel are cautiously optimistic of Manchester United's chances of advancing from Group H, indicating Jose Mourinho must fix their current problems fast.

"When Guardiola was asked if he was surprised about the amount of pressure Mourinho had come under so early in the season, he said: "(It's) our job unfortunately.

That was the start of another edgy exchange between Mourinho and journalists in which he was asked whether he could still claim to be one of the greatest managers in the world should he fail to win a league title with United.

"I had great success last season and that's probably what you (the media) don't want to admit", he insisted. "Did you read any philosopher?"

"Hopefully it will be a good atmosphere and we can get our first win against a team like that, which would be great". "We're just in August", Guardiola said.

"I have won eight titles".

Last season's second-place finish was United's highest league position in the past five years and numerous club's fans have laid the blame for the relative under-achievement at the door of executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

"We didn't make bad results two or three in a row a that is one of the reasons why we got what we got last season". "If you have titles you can work, we have work", he told a news conference.

It was a reference to his overall record as a manager, having won the Champions League twice - with Porto and Inter Milan - and eight domestic league titles in his time in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain.

"When we win we are good, when we don't we are not good - it is simple like that".
