After an uncomfortable week of prodding and probing in the wake of the shock defeat at Brighton, a packed Old Trafford expected a response from Jose Mourinho's side.

"Three wins out of three - it's been a fantastic start", said the 25-year-old.

"We have a really good group and yeah of course we'll reflect on our day off (on Tuesday) and we'll come back in on Wednesday".

Miguel Delaney, writing in The Independent, reports that United have no plans to sack their manager, and they will give him time to get it right.

Shaw believes it should have been "game over" by half-time as United impressed against a frustrated Spurs side.

After a hard summer, in which United failed to sign Mourinho's preferred transfer targets, the Portuguese manager desperately needs some results to go his way and for the mood to lift around Old Trafford.

"The first corner they had comes the goal", Shaw told MUTV.

"I think everyone felt one goal could change the direction of game, Tottenham felt it, we did too, but then the third goal changed the game".

When it was suggested to Mourinho many had walked out before the end, he added: "I would do the same, losing 3-0 and taking two hours from here to the centre of Manchester".

"A team that fights the way they did with the solidarity between the players, the dignity to play together for Manchester United and lose at home, of course it's a very hard thing for anyone". We've not been top of the league over the years like United, like Chelsea. It's early in the season so we've got a lot of games to come and a lot of positive things from tonight.

United are now 13th in the Premier League, six points behind Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Watford, who are all tied for first place.

"We were so so much the better team in the first half I wouldn't be anxious with that", he added.

"I was there on Monday as a United fan", said former Red Devils favourite Giggs. I have to say Manchester United still do things slightly differently.

"We need to pick up points, especially with two losses now". That's a team that looks like it still needs £200m spent on it.
