Under-pressure Mourinho defends Martial move after loss to West Ham

A defeat at home to Valencia tomorrow night would plunge Mourinho even deeper into the mire and could even cost him his job at Old Trafford. Until somebody who was a big professional player says he was a dishonest player, I will always believe the players. His reign as United manager is following the same path as those at Chelsea (twice) and Real Madrid - he is lighting fires and seemingly not caring how badly he gets burned.

Subsequently, though, it has been claimed Zidane's call left Mourinho convinced that United's chiefs, including vice-chairman Ed Woodward, have sounded out the Frenchman's agents and are making contingency plans ahead of his potential sacking.

United's haul of 10 points from seven games matches their return at this stage of the season under David Moyes in 2013-14 but their inferior goal difference means this is their worst top-flight start since they picked up seven points in 1989-90.

Manchester United's players need to take responsibility for a "horrendous" and "awful" defeat by West Ham, says defender Luke Shaw.

Paul Pogba has told his Manchester United teammates that he feels embarrassed to play under Jose Mourinho and has said he will leave the club in January if the Portuguese remains in charge, according to reports.

Mourinho said some of his group looked upset after the West Ham defeat, but others did not "look like they lost a game" - a point he was pushed on and attempted to explain. We will try to do everything to make this better and make our fans happy.

"The performance on the pitch is the effect of many factors", he said. We're the ones who go on the pitch. The club has since only won one trophy and while the current incumbent, Luciano Spalletti, endured a stuttering start to the season he's gone on to win his last four games on the spin meaning a managerial change is unlikely to occur anytime soon.

Zidane was anxious that Mourinho believed that he was orchestrating a move to replace him in the dugout at United. "I don't think so".

Sanchez, who has yet to net in the Premier League this term, is said to have made it clear to everyone behind the scenes that he was unhappy with Mourinho's decision.
