Shaw blasts Manchester United's 'horrendous performance' at West Ham

Ahead of Tuesday's Champions League clash with Valencia, Mourinho insisted he doesn't fear for his job but refused to state whether he had met with the club's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward in the past few days.

Do YOU agree with what Shaw has said about Man Utd after the 3-1 loss to West Ham?

And Marcos Rojo also remains sidelined with injury.

United are top of Group H after beating Young Boys in their opening match but have not won any of their three matches since in all competitions.

In addition to the problems on the pitch, Mourinho confirmed last week that Paul Pogba would not captain the side again after he had implicitly criticised the manager by urging the team to attack more.

It's not the first time that Custis has had a run in with a United boss.

In another eventful press conference, Mourinho fielded questions about his future, his players and his mooted successor Zinedine Zidane.

29-year-old Alexis would now be a Premier League champion had he joined City in January, but instead finds himself potentially becoming unwanted in the red half of Manchester if his form doesn't pick up. "The players all know the situation is not good and we know we can do better. So, big match, big week".

Valencia are even lower in the La Liga table than United are in the Premier League and on current form would not ordinarily be regarded as hard opponents, though it is the wretched form recently shown by Tuesday's hosts that could be the greater factor in the contest.

With tempers frayed and results on the slide, Juan Mata has provided perhaps the most true harbinger of Manchester United's current malaise: the cancellation of his weekly blog post.

The Chilean striker was Pep Guardiola's main attacking target for two transfer windows before an offer from Manchester United to make him the highest paid player in the Premier League turned his head, leading to him heading to Old Trafford from Arsenal. "The reason why we don't win matches is the same reason we win matches - it is the responsibility of everybody".

Gab Marcotti shares his thoughts on Jose Mourinho's motives at Manchester United, while the rest of the crew explain why it's time for him to go. His reign as United manager is following the same path as those at Chelsea (twice) and Real Madrid - he is lighting fires and seemingly not caring how badly he gets burned.

"This mess started when United sacked David Moyes after 8 months and we lost all sense of the values that the club had been built on for 100 years", he wrote on Twitter.
