Manchester United simply have to get back on track when they face Tottenham on Saturday.

Given that Mauricio Pochettino's side have won every single one of their away games in the Premier League this season, that won't be an easy task.

The Red Devils cannot afford to drop any more points, though, after drawing at Liverpool and slipping to a shock defeat at the hands of Huddersfield.

During those two fixtures, the first cracks started to show in Jose Mourinho's master plan.

The United boss was criticised for being too defensive at Anfield and he then had to endure his first loss of the season against the newly-promoted Terriers.

It's been well-documented that he lost it in the dressing room at the John Smith's stadium and some of that ill feeling continued on into training on Monday morning, such was his anger with the players.

The Daily Mail have shed some light on what was said at Carrington, with Mourinho reportedly tearing into his squad for their poor attitude and lack of hunger.

Mourinho was fuming 

"He shouted at the players that it wasn’t good enough, and told them there’s an expectation to win at United," a source told the newspaper.

The Portuguese then challenged them to beat Spurs, with whom they sit joint-second in the table, already five points off pacesetters Manchester City.

The major positive is that they should have a number of key players returning for the visit of the Lilywhites.

Marcus Rashford, Ander Herrera, Eric Bailly, and Phil Jones have all returned to training as they recover from minor knocks.

Herrera has been a little more philosophical about the Huddersfield game, explaining:

"Sometimes, during the season, you have one or two really bad games and Huddersfield was one of them.

"We want to forget, we want to look forward, we want to get good feelings and now we are playing against a top team like Tottenham."

Meanwhile, United have returned to winning ways, if the Carabao Cup really counts anymore.

A Jesse Lingard brace saw them beat Swansea City 2-0 at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday and while that won't have appeased Mourinho entirely, he certianly wouldn't have been happy if they had been on the wrong end of another upset.
