United crashed to their third Premier League defeat of the season after being outplayed 3-1 by hosts West Ham in London, increasing the pressure on under-fire manager Jose Mourinho. He's there to put a team out and put a team out that he thinks can win the game. At the end of an eventful week during which Mourinho told Pogba that he would never captain United again and shared a frosty exchange with the £89m midfielder during training, it felt like a time to close ranks.
Mourinho can potentially save the club's season from becoming a complete disaster by having a positive experience in Europe.
When asked by BT Sport whether he had a message for Mourinho, the Austria worldwide replied: "No, nothing to say".
Are Man United And Mourinho Nearing End Of The Road?
Point taken. With José Mourinho already in his seat on the team bus, Pogba's decision not to delay the journey back to Manchester was probably for the best. "We are not a team that is very good when we lose possession and the other team counterattacks". But the move which is costing them a basic salary of £391,000-a-week now appears an expensive mistake with Mourinho plotting to offload the 29 year-old.Many agree that Arsenal are struggling in the wide areas at the moment.
Mourinho said West Ham's first goal had been offside but admitted United had not been "aggressive" enough in defence in the lead-up to the Hammers' second before adding the referee was at fault prior to Arnautović's strike for not penalising a foul on Rashford. You look at our team and we had a very strong team. That didn't happen. It's disappointing and a very, very bad day for us.
"I look forward to that match on Tuesday and I hope the majority of the players have this same kind of mentality, and that they are looking forward to Tuesday".
Manchester United have now made their worst start to a top flight season since the 1989/90 campaign, suffering three losses in their opening seven Premier League fixtures.
