Jose Mourinho will have been a relieved man when the final whistle sounded at the Liberty Stadium last night.
Of course, there's only so much the Special One can draw from the Carabao Cup victory but it set Manchester United back on track after a difficult return from the latest international break. Jesse Lingard fired home a brace in south Wales to secure a 2-0 victory.
However, before that encouraging result, the Red Devils were hounded with criticism over their defensive approach at Liverpool and emerged from the trip to Benfica with a rather sheepish 1-0 win.
And the cracks that some pundits and fans had began to notice were truly exposed on Saturday when Huddersfield fought to a historic 2-1 win over England's most decorated club.
The defeat may only have been United's third in the league in 2017 but the aftermath to the capitulation was certainly fiery.
Mourinho was mooted to have gone too far in the dressing room and even - per the Independent - taunted Anthony Martial with this summer's Ivan Perisic rumours.
It makes for uncomfortable and concerning reading for United fans yet it seems the discontent has spilled over from the John Smith's Stadium changing rooms to the training pitches of Carrington.
In fact, as reported by The Sun, a Manchester United insider has revealed some very worrying facts about post-Huddersfield training.
The source explained: "The atmosphere at the training ground is the lowest it has been since Jose joined the club.
"Something isn’t right. We wonder whether his comments about Paris and not staying long term has also had an impact.
"The players have been pretty quiet since the Liverpool game and a lot less banter has been going on.
"It’s dropped off a cliff since Huddersfield. Not having Pogba’s presence is always not going to help, as he is so bubbly.
"The canteen is like a morgue and there is certainly a feeling that the manager is ready to tell a few home truths."
Trouble in paradise, and then some.
It's remarkable that the atmosphere would be considered the lowest since Mourinho's arrival, especially when you consider his mixed start to the job and questions of his commit pose concerns.
The reports don't exactly suggest a winning moral in the United dressing room and unless the problems are amended soon, Manchester City could simply be out of sight.
