Mourinho slams players as West Ham twist the knife

Pogba has been linked with a January move to Barcelona, while Juventus are also reportedly interested in buying the World Cup victor, who became football's most expensive player when he left the Serie A giants to return to United in August 2016.

Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw has been praised for his selfless actions in the aftermath of the club's humiliating 3-1 loss to West Ham United at the weekend. "I left Alexis out and I think Martial is not a player very, very focused on his defensive duties".

"Did you see their starting eleven?".

Manchester United are now occupying 10th position on the Premier League standings with ten points after seven games played this term.

The United boss defended a tactical switch to bring in Scott McTominay alongside Chris Smalling and Lindelof in a back three and the decision to play Anthony Martial instead of the misfiring Alexis Sanchez, who was not even in the squad.

"I can have complaints with quality and mental approach", Mourinho said.

Mourinho's time at Old Trafford may be running out, particularly if he fails to summon a response when United host Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday.

United are anxious to hang on to one of the world's most marketable players but all the signs are that they are sticking with Mourinho for now despite their desperately poor start to the season, which has seen them muster just 10 points from seven games.

One that got trickier once United was so easily picked apart by a West Ham side with only four points from six games before Saturday.

"We were not aggressive and intense enough to close that shot", Mourinho said.
