Record book favours United to win EPL title despite losing 2 games

- Manchester United suffered a 3-0 bashing by Tottenham at home on Monday night

- United have now lost two of their three opening games of Premier League season

- The records book suggests there is hope for United to bounce back

Premier League side Manchester United may have started the new campaign poorly but if history is anything to go by, the Jose Mourinho tutored-side can still storm back to reckoning and cart home the silverware.

At the last count, United were hammered 3-0 by Tottenham at Old Trafford, meaning that they have just three points from their opening three matches in the English topflight in the new season.

According to a UK Daily Mail report, the Red Devils lost their two opening three games of a season 26 years ago during the 1992-93 campaign, but ended up claiming the league top prize.

During the campaign Manchester United were able to garner an impressive 84 points haul.

And in the course of the season the Sir Alex Ferguson tutored-side lost their opening fixtures 2-1 to Sheffield United and 3-0 to Everton in their first home game.

Interestingly, 26 years on the Red Devils are on a similar path after winning their opening tie against Leicester, they have suffered two defeats to Brighton and Tottenham and would be desperate to return to winning ways after Monday night’s humiliating 3-0 home loss.
