The Telegraph have reported that the former Wolverhampton Wanderers manager's days could be numbered already after talks about his future took place on Sunday following Spurs' defeat to Manchester United on Saturday night.

It was another lacklustre display from the home side as they failed to have a single shot on target during the game and was subject to jeers from the home support, as well as shouts of 'you don't know what you're doing' in regards to his choice of substitutions.

In particular, the choice to take off Lucas Moura proved to be a controversial decision with the Tottenham fans who made their feelings known loudly.

Following a strong start to the season results wise - with Nuno's side winning their first three games - form has dropped off and back-to-back losses against West Ham United and Manchester United have now all but sealed his fate.

After Spurs' poor performance on Saturday night, Roy Keane labelled the side as 'boring' in a brutal assessment of the club in which he singled out Harry Kane as one of many not playing to the best of their abilities.

"Spurs are boring," he said.

"They're boring to watch. Really boring.

"It was as if the stadium was empty. Come on, where's that bit of energy. There was a bit of booing at the end, and that was mainly aimed towards probably Harry Kane more than anybody else because his performance wasn't up to scratch."

According to the report, a decision on his future could be made imminently with fans more than discontent with life under Nuno.

The appointment of the 47-year-old is already one that didn't come with much excitement, with Nuno low down on the list of original replacements for Jose Mourinho, who was sacked the week before the Carabao Cup final.

The likes of Antonio Conte and Paulo Fonseca were favourites for the job in the summer, with Conte turning down the job, highlighting a lack of ambition at the club as the main reason for doing so.
