Aug 27 (Reuters) - Lucas Moura scored twice as Tottenham Hotspur romped to a 3-0 Premier League win over Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday as Jose Mourinho’s team’s defensive woes were exposed once again.

Mourinho made six changes from the side beaten 3-2 at Brighton and Hove Albion last week and dropped both central defenders, Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof.

United showed promise in an even first half and should have taken the lead through Romelu Lukaku, but Spurs struck twice to condemn a stunned United to their second loss in three games and maintain the London side’s 100 percent record.

Harry Kane leapt above Phil Jones to head home a Kieran Trippier corner in the 50th minute and two minutes later Brazilian Lucas Moura slipped the ball home after a fine break and low cross from Christian Eriksen.

Moura wrapped up the victory, waltzing past Chris Smalling before confidently drilling the ball past David De Gea.
