Mourinho has many "complaints" after Manchester United loss

Mourinho has many

Mourinho's men travelled to the London Stadium on Saturday boasting an enviable record against West Ham but came away chastened after a 3-1 defeat killed off any realistic hopes of a Premier League challenge before the end of September.

"You can't let a situation like this continue throughout the season - wars in the press, leaks, players on one side of the dressing room, Mourinho and his staff on the other".

Deschamps said that Pogba can not be expected to do everything on his own and needs to be part of a cohesive team unit to play his best football.

That was followed on Tuesday by elimination from the League Cup on penalties at home by Championship side Derby County after a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford.

Mourinho blamed the officials for West Ham's first and third goals, saying the opener should have been flagged offside and the move that led to the Arnautovic goal included a foul on Rashford.

West Ham were rewarded on five minutes, when Mark Noble slid in Pablo Zabaleta down the right and the Argentine crossed for Anderson to flick the ball brilliantly past David de Gea with his heel.

The relationship between the pair seems to have hit an all-time low

"I think the hierarchy and the people who run the club, people like [executive chairman] Ed Woodward, are having conversations at that level as to where they go from here. I didn't see that today", he told BT Sport.

While the reclusive American family, who never talk to the media about United, can be accused of many things, being knee-jerk is not one of them. "The third, this time was a referee mistake", he said.

By December, we could get a clear picture as to where United stand and what happens regarding their decision on Jose.

He also criticised his own team, calling out Alexis Sanchez (who didn't start) and his side's defending.

United, who went two down before halftime with a Victor Lindelof own goal, offered a little resistance with a second-half goal from Marcus Rashford only for their central defence to be sliced open once more nearly immediately as Marko Arnautovic struck the Hammers' third.

"But I repeat that tomorrow I think we are going to play very well, I think we are going to win a very hard match against a very good opponent, an opponent with great investment, an opponent with a champion manager (Manuel Pellegrini) with lots of experienced players and lots of very talented players".
