Manchester United v Valencia

Share

José Mourinho defended his decision to play Anthony Martial instead of Alexis Sánchez after a 3-1 loss away to West Ham on Saturday condemned Manchester United to a third defeat in seven Premier League games - their worst start to a domestic campaign in almost 30 years.

The former Premier League champions' 3-1 defeat at West Ham left them ten points adrift leaders and neighbours Manchester City.

'For me, I played one of the worst games since I signed for Man United. "The manager isn't on the pitch is he?" he said to reporters.

But Pogba did not hold back in his apparent criticism of United's tactics in a tame draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford, saying the team should "attack, attack, attack" at home in what was widely regarded as a barb at Mourinho's gameplan.

Mourinho refused to single out any player amid rumours that he'd lost the dressing room but he did make a concerning admission about certain members of his squad.

"I see so-so but in the little two sessions of training we had (since Saturday) everything (was) normal, desire to work and play".

"We have to do our job and we did it excellently, and that is why we deserved to win", he said. I can say that in the club everyone is giving his best to do better for the team.

The full-back Luke Shaw said as much after the damaging defeat at the London Stadium at the weekend, and rather than criticising the player for his verdict of "horrendous" on the performance Mourinho said he felt the same way.

Pogba, who appears determined to leave United as soon as possible, was poor against West Ham and was substituted after 70 minutes. It's hard to take. It just wasn't good enough from us.

The Red Devils started their Champions League campaign with a convincing 3-0 victory over Young Boys but the side's form away from Europe has put Mourinho under intense pressure.

Matic admitted that United's slump in form has put more pressure on the players as United prepare to face Valencia and Newcastle at home before the worldwide break.

"I'm not asking you who did you speak to this morning or your last phone call".
