And the Frenchman’s reaction – having received a sort-of vote of confidence from his manager – could go a long way towards shaping United’s season. A fine performance and a good win, and the training ground spat from Wednesday could be as good as forgotten. But another defeat for United could make Mourinho’s reign seem increasingly untenable.
