An under-pressure Jose Mourinho came out fighting after Manchester United’s 3-0 defeat to Tottenham on Monday night.

Having just suffered his worst ever home defeat as a manager, Mourinho took it upon himself to remind everyone how many times he has won the Premier League, asking for “respect, respect, respect”.

In a tetchy press conference, he said with three fingers held up: “Three-nil but it also means three Premierships and I won more alone than the other 19 managers together. Three for me and two for them.”

Here Press Association Sport looks at his previous title wins and the “two for them”.
