After a transfer window blighted by snide comments from Jose Mourinho over failed pursuits, the Red Devils have now endured their worst start to a league season since 1989.

Nemanja Matic, one of Mourinho's most trusted players, said: "I don't think with talking you can resolve something".

Mourinho was a great manager who knew how to win trophies year after year, but he has morphed into something very different in the second half of his career and it has become clear that he doesn't know how to handle superstar players with big egos. "I see upset people, some people that don't look like they lost a game". After the latest setback, a 3-1 loss to West Ham united at the weekend, Mourinho publicly opened-up a new front against his dressing room, especially Alexis Sanchez and Anthony Martial. "The most important is on the pitch".

United will really want a 100% record going into the double header with Juve and need some momentum before the next worldwide break next week.

Regardless of issues off the pitch, the players have a duty to perform to their highest standard on it.

"I'm not asking you who did you speak with this morning, who was your last phone call, that's a private matter".

In the room, with Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge , she said, a drunk Kavanaugh "groped me and tried to take off my clothes". She repeatedly used the word "correction" when going through a series of minor clarifications in Ford's letters and comments.

Man Utd flop Sanchez tipped for Arsenal return
"I'm not the manager, I can not , like, say that, but obviously we should show more options of playing". United should be looking to win every home game.

"They're not used to going through a hard situation, but I think that's part of the career of a footballer". They do it, they don't do it that's a different story, but I repeat I am naive or I still believe the player is an honest man.

"We need to play the flawless match to win", Marcelino continued but added some words of caution about the task ahead.

"I am really happy that I now go to the train and I start immediately thinking about training tomorrow and about the match on Tuesday".

"What I can do to improve things I do, and I will improve the things that depend on me and my work".

You feel something has to give soon.
