On Tuesday he was Jose Mourinho's saviour as his two goals rescued a 2-2 draw against Burnley when the manager had earlier appeared to have sabotaged himself by selecting Zlatan Ibrahimovic as a number 10. One thing is a big club and another thing is a big football team that you know is not one of the best teams in the world, so when you speak about responsibilities to win the Premier League, Tottenham does not have that responsibility.
"We talked about it (with Mourinho)", he added.:The coach is someone who respects the decisions of his players".
It is two more dropped points and a further example of just how far the rest of the league is behind Manchester City, but more than that it was a lesson for Mourinho to learn.
Journalist Matt Spiro has perfectly explained just why Mourinho's comments are off the mark.
"Another "s" goal. I don't need to say the other letters of the word".
'I have been in that position for 21 years so I will not start to complain now, ' said Wenger. "I have always had one team at least - sometimes four - who were richer than I was, so I learned to cope with that and deal with that".
But Burnley stunned Old Trafford for a second time nine minutes before the break, when Defour curled a sublime free-kick into the top-left corner from 25 yards out to double the visitors' lead.
Maybe it's time that Mourinho realised that he needs to rethink his tactics, management style and list of transfer targets in an effort to make United great again, rather than try to save his own bacon.
Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has said he's been unjustly portrayed as a "murderer" and a "villain" during his time in English football, which could be drawing to a close at the end of this season. Whether I will accept it, I do not know. They made a proposal and another one will probably follow.
Fellaini earned a retrospective three-match ban in May 2016 for an elbow on Leicester defender Robert Huth, although the latter was handed the same punishment for tugging the Belgian's hair, proof he wasn't innocent, either.
