- Three straight defeats for Man United
- Mourinho has struggled since August 2015
- 24 points from last 22 league games as a manager
After three losses in a week, Mourinho's previously undefeated start to his managerial career at Manchester United has unraveled.
Following a disastrous end to his time at Chelsea that culminated in his sacking in December 2015, questions are being asked about the Portuguese's ability to restore United to its former glories.
Having spent £145 million ($190 million) on new signings during the recent transfer window, many believed Mourinho had assembled a team capable of winning the Premier League after the club's disappointing fifth-place finish in the 2015-16 season.
Confirmed as the replacement for departing United manager Louis van Gaal in May, Mourinho's Old Trafford tenure began in encouraging fashion.
United claimed the Community Shield with victory over Leicester City and recorded league wins over Bournemouth, Southampton and Hull City. Four wins from four -- with new striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic adapting well to the demands of English football -- and things were looking rosy.
