Relief for Mourinho as United win; Liverpool, Chelsea and Watford maintain Top three spots

There was relief for Jose Mourinho after Mancheter United's 2-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday. The 53-year old beleaguered Portuguese coach came under intense pressure from all quarters after succumbing to humiliating defeats to Brighton and Totenham Hotspur over a fortnight.

Ace striker Romelu Lukaku's brace against Brighton has raised hopes among fans of a better performance going ahead. But the Belgian striker was still well below his best, squandering at least a couple of easy chances to score.

Paul Pogba had a dismal game, his miseries compounded further by a missed penalty. Davis de Gea broke his run of poor shows between the posts and maintained his first clean sheet post his Golden Glove award last season.

Marcus Rashford as usual was introduced late (in the 61st minute), but spent just 10 minutes on the pitch, red-carded for leaning into Burnley defender Phil Bardsley with his head. But despite the Pogba and Rashford blemishes, United looked a much-improved side. Alexis Sanchez seemed to put his poor form aside and assist in the Lukaku opener. For a change the United back four of Valencia, Smalling, Lindelof and Luke Shaw looked solid and Burnley were able to find a way through even when putting pressure in the closing stages of the game.

Meanwhile Liverpool, Chelsea and Watford maintained their perfects starts to the season winning all their four Premier League games so far, accruing 12 points each in the process. Watford queered the pitch for Tottenham Hotspurs, who seemed to be going so strong after three back-to-back wins. The Hornets came back from being a goal down at Vicarage Road to win 2-1 with second-half strikes from Troy Deeney and Craig Cathcart.

Liverpool brushed aside an Alisson howler to prevail over Leicester City 1-2 away at the King Power Stadium on Saturday. The £67 million Alisson's blemish was the Brazilian goal-keeper's first from four games. Jurgen Klopp's men will face the toughest test of the season so far when they visit Wembley to play Tottenham on the 15th.

Chelsea made light work of Bournemouth with a 2-0 win at the Stamford Bridge giving new manager Maurizio Sarri the kind the start he dreamt of. With their next two fixtures against Premier League debutants Cardiff City and a tottering West Ham, the Blues look to be on their way up the table to the top spot very soon. Manchester United, though, are in the 10th spot with just 6 points even after their Burnley win.
