A stuttering start to the season has seen the Portuguese’s men pick up three points less than his Dutch predecessor’s after seven games.
Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Stoke City on Sunday means they have collected only 13 points from their first seven Premier League games – three less than Louis van Gaal’s side last season.
Consecutive losses to first Manchester City and then Watford in September had seen them fall off the pace, though Jose Mourinho’s men responded in style by trashing Leciester City 4-1.
However, it appears the Portuguese has not come up with an answer to their see-saw form just yet, as Stoke fought back to secure a 1-1 result at Old Trafford, with Joe Allen cancelling out Anthony Martial’s stunning opener.
United’s current points tally places them three behind the much-maligned Van Gaal side last term – a disappointing return given the world-record arrival of Paul Pogba in the summer.
