Are Man United And Mourinho Nearing End Of The Road?

Ed Woodward is facing a huge dilemma over Jose Mourinho's future, with the Manchester United executive vice-chairman reluctant to sack the manager but fearful his hand could be forced against his will if the club's season continues to implode.

Speaking in an interview with Coral, Shearer said: "Jose has taken on his players before at Chelsea and we know how that ended, he was shown the door, and I think the same outcome will happen here. After the result on Tuesday (defeat to Derby in the League Cup) the team obviously needs positive things, positive feelings and to start losing after five minutes is not that positive start that you need".

United pulled a goal back through Marcus Rashford in the second half but Marko Arnautovic restored the two-goal cushion for West Ham minutes later.

Forget whether he played today or not, he's been bang average for so many games now for Manchester United.

McTominay was making his first Premier League start of the season, having impressed Mourinho last term, and the 21-year-old midfielder was commended again by his manager. We're the ones who go on the pitch.

"Alexis Sanchez is not playing well enough", Mourinho said, explaining why the club's highest earner didn't even make the bench against West Ham. It just wasn't good enough from us. "We are not a team that is very good when we lose possession and the other team counter-attacks".

Paul Pogba has added fuel to the fire of his rapidly disintegrating relationship with Jose Mourinho by turning down interviews in the wake of Manchester United's latest defeat with a four-word reply: "You want me dead?"

Pogba's previous post-match remarks, when he questioned United's conservative tactics after the draw at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers the previous weekend, have caused friction with Mourinho, who also stripped him of the vice-captaincy during the week.

Reports on Sunday claimed Mourinho had given the 29-year-old a dressing down in training earlier in the week and Sanchez was said to have been left stunned by his manager's decision to omit him from the matchday squad.

United's rocky campaign continued on a negative trajectory at West Ham on Saturday, the home fans taunting them with "Oles" as the Red Devils were well beaten 3-1.
