It's all fun and games when Mourinho is taking a swipe at Guardiola, Conte or Wenger, a little less droll when your own manager is having a go at you.

This is the hard lesson that United fans have had to learn this weekend as Mourinho aims his jibes at them for a change, accusing them not supporting Romelu Lukaku.

In conversation with MUTV following his side's 1-0 win over Spurs, Mourinho lambasted fair-weather fans.

"I would like the supporters to explain to me why they don't support Romelu Lukaku so much," he said, defending the Belgian national who has failed to score in his last five appearances for United.

"He gives everything and I think it is not fair when scoring the goal or not scoring the goal makes the whole difference," he added. "I don't think it is fair at all. So I'm a bit disappointed [in the fans]. But not with him. With him I am very pleased."

The Special One had earlier commented on his annoyance at hearing boos at Old Trafford when Martial replaced Rashford, "I really don't understand some reactions why. Are they Red Devils? Sometimes I don't know because [the players] work amazingly well."

"Today there were two strikers playing together against three top central defenders – the best we have in Europe – and they had to do the defensive job of pressing them when they were coming out with the ball which they do very well because they have big routines of playing with three in the back."
