Press Association Sport looks at how the French World Cup victor fared in the 3-0 defeat at home to Tottenham.
There was a sense, when Jose Mourinho stayed on to applaud the fans, that even he knew it might be one of the final times he'd do so.
Spurs, who didn't sign a single player in the summer, have so far bagged back-to-back wins over Newcastle and Fulham, and should they topple the Red Devils, they'll accumulate three top-flight wins out of three at the start of a campaign for the first time in nine years.
"But that is the price on the ticket if you're the manager of Manchester United and it's not going well".
After the match, Mourinho remained on the Old Trafford pitch to applaud the remaining United fans in the stand.
Martial is still keen to leave, though it seems unlikely that Woodward would accept an offer ahead of the European transfer window deadline, and he believes Mourinho left him out of the squad to face Spurs in order to get back at Woodward.
Harry Kane broke the deadlock with a fine header five minutes after the break, as Spurs consigned United to a second defeat in their opening three matches.
Seeking a response to their 3-2 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend, United came flying out of the blocks and had a chance within 20 seconds when Fred latched onto a Jesse Lingard flick-on only to shoot wide.
When the game got underway, the teams fought out an entertaining but goalless first half. Romelu Lukaku rounded Hugo Lloris but sent his shot on the angle wide of the open goal from 12 yards. "We wanted to start the season well and three wins out of three is a great start". Moura has been superb throughout.
"I'm still very much a fan of Tottenham, so I want them to win something".
"We worked all week and from the tactical point of view we didn't lose, but we lost the game", said Mourinho who went on the attack against the media.
That just about sums things up - Mourinho is under more pressure right now than he's arguably been in his entire career.
"I don't think its normal for a team to lose a game at home and for supporters to react [like that]", he said.
