Luke Shaw has defended under-fire manager Jose Mourinho by insisting that Manchester United's players are to blame for Saturday's "horrendous" defeat to West Ham United. "I look at my team, whatever the other team is doing is not our stuff".

Next up for United is a Champions League game at home to Valencia on Tuesday - and Mourinho told the club website that he welcomes the prospect.

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".

And while the Hammers' second, an own goal off Victor Lindelof from Andriy Yarmolenko's shot, carried a lot of fortune, the 2-0 scoreline was a clear reflection of the difference in approach from the two sides.

McTominay was making his first Premier League start of the season, having impressed Mourinho last term, and the 21-year-old midfielder was commended again by his manager.

Manchester United's lamentable submission to West Ham United on Saturday emphasised what we already knew.


Manchester United are a club in crisis and Jose Mourinho is seemingly powerless to prevent a slide into mid-table mediocrity for the 20-time English champions. "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". It was not good enough from a Manchester United team with all the talent we have.

When asked for his verdict on United's performance, Pogba replied: "You want me dead?"

United remain the world's richest club for now, but that is not being reflected on the field for frustrated fans more interested in points than profits.

LONDON, ENGLAND - SEPTEMBER 29: Romelu Lukaku of Manchester United is tackled by Issa Diop (l) and Fabian Balbuena of West Ham United during the Premier League match between West Ham United and Manchester United at London Stadium on September 29, 2018 in London, United Kingdom. He's a special character, a special personality that a team in a negative moment needs.

West Ham, buoyed by a fortnight which had seen them take four points from Everton and Chelsea before putting eight past Macclesfield in the Carabao Cup, were ahead after only five minutes.
