Manchester United hit with triple injury blow ahead of Newcastle visit

Jose Mourinho accepts Manchester United's poor run is not good enough, but the under-fire manager stressed that it is not all his fault.

Following Sky Sports" coverage of Brighton's win over West Ham, the Red Devils legend launched into a five-minute tirade against player-power, executives being in "Football Manager" mode and a "rotten to the core' situation at Old Trafford.

They sit 10th in the table having made their worst start to a league campaign in 29 years and were booed off the pitch after the goalless draw with Valencia in midweek. "If I'm the person who employs the person underneath me and he fails, eventually I've got to take the responsibility for it".

Scheduled to kick-off at 5:30pm, Mourinho and his staff were said to arrive before 12:00pm this afternoon.

"Yes, I accept", he said. The opening 20 minutes of their opening day 2-1 win over Leicester remains the best they have played this term, yet the team's play is a reflection of their manager's beleaguered manner.

"I said on Monday Night Football it can get to the stage where it becomes untenable and you have to make a change for everybody", Carragher continued.

The Special One succeeded Louis van Gaal as manager in 2016 and had a fruitful start to his career as United boss, winning the Community Shield, EFL Cup and Europa League in his first season.

- Newcastle have lost eight Premier League matches when scoring first against Manchester United - a joint-high in the competition alongside Southampton v Man Utd and Sunderland v Chelsea (eight defeats).

"He is a key player, a good player and he plays in the right position, but for me he isn't a real leader like (Steven) Gerrard". Capello opened up on the chat with Mourinho at the UEFA coaching convention about the players he aimed to sign.

"Jose Mourinho has to realise that we expect Manchester United to be challenging to win the league and do well in the Champions League, so when they're down in 10th, 11th place, he has to expect some stick", declared Scholes. "I have no doubts about that".

"What are we meant to say?"

"I think a lot of wickedness and the clear man-hunting that I think in football is too much, but as I was saying, it's my life". That's the reason why it was a phenomenal season.
