And for Manchester United, their problems were written large on a torturous afternoon at West Ham yesterday after a 3-1 defeat.

United now look far from contenders, but they can take a huge step towards the last 16 by moving six points clear of Valencia in Group H on Tuesday.

United have a tricky week before the second global break as they host Valencia in their Champions League group-stage outing before welcoming Newcastle United next Saturday. There was no coherent offensive strategy as they sleepwalked to a defeat that looked on the cards from the moment Felipe Anderson scored his maiden goal for the club.

"I think the hierarchy and the people who run the club, people like [executive chairman] Ed Woodward, are having conversations at that level as to where they go from here".

Mourinho was also displeased with what he deemed one offside goal, an unlucky own goal, and a third goal in which he believed there was a West Ham foul in the build-up. It was not good enough from a Man United team with all the talent we have. "To play him as a second striker and trying just to cover the area of [Declan] Rice would be much easier for him and at the same time, I feel that we need quality on the ball building up from the back and Scott McTominay has that quality with the ball". "I left Alexis out and I think Martial is not a player very, very focused on his defensive duties".

Are Man United And Mourinho Nearing End Of The Road?

The Evening Standard also believe Mourinho is exhausted of Sanchez's spluttering displays, with their report stating Mourinho has been "particularly incensed by the 29-year-old forward for his overall performance levels since the start of the season".

"We have to look at ourselves as players", said Shaw. It was very poor from us. "And after weeks of analysing and changing opinions with my coaching staff we made the decision that from now Paul is just a player and not a captain".

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. They have played three and lost as many so far.

Now he somehow has to get a group of seemingly-disenchanted players back on side in time for a potentially pivotal visit from Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
