Jose Mourinho and Manchester United must make changes to salvage season

Jose Mourinho and Manchester United must make changes to salvage season

"It's always hard when you lose games and especially when you play for a big club that wants to win trophies".

Supporters have not appreciated the more pragmatic style of football, however, and tensions have been apparent with players such as the record 89 million pounds ($116 million) signing Paul Pogba.

United left-back Luke Shaw said the Hammers loss was "awful" and "horrendous" and that the players have to take responsibility.

Alexis Sanchez was furious after being excluded from the team that faced West Ham over the weekend, according to the Mirror. I want to thank all of you who support us during these tough times.

"We need to play the ideal match to win", Marcelino continued but added some words of caution about the task ahead. After strings of impressive performances and shrewd tactics, Chelsea have joined Manchester City and Liverpool as favourites to win the Premiership.

At his pre-match media conference forTuesday's Champions League clash with Valencia, Mourinho was asked if his job was on the line this week ahead of the global break.

John Merelli, who works at a hotel on the island, said local people helped with the rescue effort within minutes of the crash. A Papua New Guinean plane has sunk in a lagoon after overshooting the runway in the Federated States of Micronesia.

Can Mourinho stay on as United manager? I think both starting defences are very close, but Manchester City have more depth.

Mourinho is under increasing pressure after seeing United collect just 10 points from their opening seven Premier League games.

Reporter: "That he needs to create more". "Against Juventus we saw what the Champions League us all about, and we have to compete for 90 minutes".

Their relationship became totally strained the other week though when, after the draw to Wolves, in which Pogba gave the ball away for the away side's equaliser, Pogba criticised the way the team played saying, "We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves".

Manchester United have lost just one of their last 18 Champions League group stage games at Old Trafford (W12, D5), a 1-0 defeat to CFR Cluj in December 2012. As a team all of us have to provide more goals, the defenders as well. We will see tomorrow and in the next games who the leader is.
