Manuel Pellegrini insists West Ham United's owners always had his back

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.

Jurgen Klopp's men recorded a 1-1 draw away at Chelsea on Saturday, extending their lead over Manchester United, who went down to a 3-1 defeat at West Ham United.

"No, I don't think so", he said.

"What I can do to improve things I do, and I will improve the things that depend on me and my work", Mourinho told the press ahead of the Champions League game with Valencia. It's all of us. He knows that his manager is losing support from players and that the supporters are also running out of patience with both the results and style of play.

"We needed to do our jobs and we did it excellently".

"When you play a long time with another team and you play different football in that other team you have some kind of adaptation that you have to have", said the Frenchman. Nonetheless Mourinho rejects any that some members of his squad are deliberately underperforming in order to bring about his removal.

Meanwhile, The Sun's royal correspondent Emily Andrews tweeted: "A princess who still takes the time to shut her auto door".

"We have to do our job and we did it excellently, and that is why we deserved to win", he said. I want to thank all of you who support us during these tough times. I see upset people, some people that don't look like they lost a game, I see 'so-so'.

Mourinho is believed to have stayed behind in London with his family after the loss, leading to the players to openly talking about the prospect of the tactician leaving.

Manchester United's misfiring players need to take responsibility for a "horrendous" display against West Ham that leaves them languishing in 10th place in the Premier League, defender Luke Shaw said.

'It's always hard when you lose the games and don't collect the points, especially when you play in a big club that wants to win titles and trophies.

"I'm not going to answer". They don't always perform the way you would like but that's a different thing.
