The Portuguese tactician selected a stronger than expected starting line-up for tonights game with David de Gea, Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford all starting.
However, United put in yet another lacklustre performance and were fortunate not to lose by a greater scoreline.
To make matters worse, record summer signing Paul Pogba was forced off with an injury. The result comes off the back of disappointing results against the likes of Chelsea and Burnley.
Mourinho was the talk of the town on social media and has been heavily criticised for his decisions, here a selection of those tweets.
Jose Mourinho before kick-off and after kick-off.

You can't deny United are progressing under Mourinho. That goal came ages after Pedro's.

Fans were hotly on Mourinho’s case following Sow’s goal after just two minutes and things only got worse when the former Sunderland man Jeremain Lens scored a perfectly struck free-kick to put the Yellow Canaries 2-0 up.

I would watch a TV series that followed Jose Mourinho and everything he has to do to remove the curse on him so his teams can win again.

Honestly can't believe Mourinho, playing Rashford as a left wing back, and benching Martial, all to include 35 year old Ibrahimovic

Mourinho is genuinely destroying United, PROPER CHELS

I know Jose Mourinho was upset when we didn't hire him to take over from Fergie but this is taking holding a grudge to a whole new level.

Mourinho is a dead man walking. Hopefully his stay will last as long as possible. Should be fun 😆
