Are Man United and Mourinho nearing end of the road?

In the immediate aftermath of the defeat there was fresh speculation United are lining up former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane to replace Mourinho, although it was dismissed as "nonsense" by sources close to the club on Saturday night.

Bookmakers have continued to react to Manchester United's latest defeat by amending the latest Premier League odds following the Red Devils' stunning 3-1 defeat at West Ham on Saturday afternoon.

"I just think they have actually become a very, very average team with a very negative manager".

"You look at our team against West Ham and we had a very strong team".

With seven games gone, City are already nine points better off than their neighbours.

While Shaw continues to enhance his ever-growing reputation, Man United now face a massive week in a bid to get this season back on track.

He used his brief interaction with the press to rail against the lack of VAR in the Premier League, in response to the first West Ham goal, in which scorer Felipe Anderson was offside.

Manchester United are a club in crisis and Jose Mourinho is seemingly powerless to prevent a slide into mid-table mediocrity for the 20-time English champions.

Saturday's loss at West Ham represented a new nadir for the Mourinho era and while Pogba turned down the chance to criticise the result, he once again intimated he is unsettled at United.

LONDON, ENGLAND - SEPTEMBER 29: Paul Pogba of Manchester United with Jose Mourinho manager of Manchester United as he is substituted during the Premier League match between West Ham United and Manchester United at London Stadium on September 29, 2018 in London, United Kingdom. We're the ones who go on the pitch.

An unlucky own goal increased their lead but even a superb strike from Marcus Rashford made little difference, with Marko Arnautovic scoring the victor.

Small actions like Shaw's ensures the relationship between the players and the fans remains good, and it's great to see him showing his appreciation. "No excuses. As players we weren't good enough".

"I want to play [Anthony] Martial, something that you are asking for a long, long time", said Jose, referring to journalist who had asked him to include the Frenchman.

United's hierarchy may appear relatively sanguine despite the poor run but how long can they afford to wait before they reach crunch point?
