Man Utd hero Ince: Every club laughing at us falling behind

Manchester United legend Paul Ince has slammed his former club by stating they are "becoming a laughing stock" for their rivals.

The Red Devils were handed a shocking 3-2 defeat at the hands of Brighton on Sunday. And Ince feels another loss to Tottenham Hotspur on Monday will severely impact their season.

"Other clubs and fans are having a field day at the minute, seeing what is happening at Manchester United. They're becoming a laughing stock, and falling behind," the former midfielder wrote for Paddy Power .

"They finished second last season, and will probably make the top four this year, but is that what they should be striving for? No.

"Realistically, their goal should be to win the Premier League. But they just cannot compete with Manchester City or Liverpool at the minute.

"If they lose against Tottenham on Monday, for example, they could find themselves six points behind City with three games gone already."
