Manchester United v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League
Floundering defenders

The decline of The Red Devils has seemingly commenced, despite them finishing second last season in the Premier League, United have lost two back to back games this season, and they look pretty much weaker than the season before.

Manchester United encountered a thrashing defeat just last week against Tottenham at Old Trafford, with Jose's men no match for The Lilywhites. A 0-3 defeat at home for the most decorated club in Manchester is an absolute embarrassment.

What went wrong? Who is to be blamed? Is it because of Jose's tactics Manchester United are losing, or is it because of a lack of passion and dedication from his men?

However, The Red Devils still have time to get back on track. It is just the start of the season, and if they do not make effective decisions now, they might not finish in the top 6.

Here are 4 ways Man Utd could turn it around.

Sanchez seems to be nowhere near his best

Clearly, one cannot find flaws in the attacking unit of United. Maybe the tactics executed by Jose Mourinho is not working on the team, but with the attacking options Manchester United have, they should be finishing every game with at least 2 goals scored, if not more.

The likes of Lukaku, Sanchez, Rashford, and Lingard can bring a mid-table team to the top 3 or 4, if not higher. Many claim that Jose's tactics and his defensive formations are evidently impeding his attackers.

However, Mourinho is the reason Manchester United finishing second last season, it would not be completely right to put all the blame on the manager now.

Lukaku has been having troubles with his first touch since his Everton days, and he does not seem to be improving at all. He missed an open goal against Tottenham last week, though it was on his weaker foot. But if you're getting paid thousands of pounds per week, the least you can do is score open goals, irrespective of which foot your shot was on.
