This has sparked discussions between club president Daniel Levy and soccer general manager over his future, according to The Telegraph, and there could be an immediate change.

The back-to-back defeats to United and West Ham have only increased the pressure on the Portuguese after 17 games in his tenure.

Levy, who will no doubt have heard fans calling for his exit, was reportedly furious at the loss and had previously worried about the performance.

Fans booed Nuno after replacing Lucas Moura in the 52nd minute as chants of ‘you don’t know what you are doing’ echoed through Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

He spoke to talkSPORT after the game and was confident he could turn things around, although he might not get the chance.

“We had a bad one. We did not perform well today. he said.

“It was a bad performance. We had the ball but not the shots on target and we weren’t precise on the last pass.

“We were vulnerable, we allowed counterattacks and did a lot of harm. “

He continued, “The fans that we had today in the stadium don’t see what they wanted to see. Instead, they want their team to play well and be better than the opponent.

“You can’t expect anything else. They will boo. It depends on us. There are no words that will change the situation. Only hard work.

“Not with words, only with actions. The actions are next Thursday then in the Premier League, only with actions.

“No words are going to take away the anger of our fans.

When asked if he thought he could do it, Nuno replied, “Sure. We must humbly ask them to continue to support us because we need them.
