Some United players care more than others, claims José Mourinho

Chelsea Won't Challenge Liverpool and Manchester City Due To This – Reds Legend

Jose Mourinho's future as Manchester United manager is looking perilous his side crashed to a 3-1 defeat by West Ham United on Saturday.

United take on Valencia in the Champions League tomorrow evening with Mourinho under growing pressure after a troubled start to the season.

But the Portuguese would not confirm or deny whether Zidane has been in touch about the United job. No player is the... "I think individually and as a team we were very bad".

In addition, after last week's Carabao Cup defeat to Derby, was it necessary for the manager to say he knew United were in trouble if they had to use Phil Jones and Eric Bailly in the penalty shootout?

"The performance on the pitch, in my opinion, is the outcome of many factors - of many factors".

On United's plight this season, Mourinho added: "I think that some [players] care more than others".

Burnley look like they have finally shaken off the effects of their European hangover as they recorded back-to-back league wins with a 2-1 victory over Cardiff City on Sunday.

Luke Shaw was willing to talk about his side's performance on Saturday saying, "We didn't look like a team today that was going to beat West Ham". I think individually and as a team we were bad.

"And there's also the greatness of Chelsea, such a big club".

"The players don't want that now". Everybody wants to do better, everyone is trying to resolve this situation.

"Games like this we should be dominating, creating chances, showing people why we deserve to play for Man United and that didn't happen". When you don't win a few games in a row there is attention on you.

United fans have been entertained by some awesome players over the years, and they certainly don't want to see Fellaini as a center forward when the team has Rashford, Sanchez, and Lukaku to take that place. It also meant Paul Pogba had nobody to link with, hence his frustration in the middle.

Sturridge's wonder-strike against Chelsea was one of six PL goals from outside the area and although it came from an impressive 28.8 yards out, it was only the second furthest he has scored from in his Liverpool career.

In fact, the best football United played this season was against Spurs when they lost 3-0. We're the ones who go on the pitch.
