So it comes down to this: Can Jose Mourinho ever produce the exciting and successful Manchester United side that fans crave? In the aftermath of the result at the London Stadium, sources told ESPN FC any link to Zinedine Zidane and the United job was "nonsense".

"I'm not asking you who did you speak with this morning, who was your last phone call, that's a private matter".

"When you play for Manchester United everyone expects you win the games", the Serbia global said.

Rojo is also still unavailable for selection as he continues to work his way back to full fitness from a knee injury that's hampered him in recent weeks so it means Mourinho will be without four senior players for the Valencia clash.

United left-back Luke Shaw said the players have to take more responsibility for a poor start to the campaign, rather than Mourinho proving to be the fall guy.

Pogba was stripped of the vice-captaincy last week, but one of Mourinho's most trusted lieutenants, Nemanja Matic, believes leadership is about how you perform on the pitch, rather than wearing the armband.

At yesterday's Champions League media conference, Mourinho was asked about the Chile worldwide after he was dropped for defeat to West Ham. Until somebody who was a big professional player says he was a dishonest player, I will always believe the players.


"Games like this we should be dominating, creating chances, showing people why we deserve to play for Man United and that didn't happen today".

United fans have been entertained by some fantastic 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.

The Red Devils are enduring a testing time at present, with a three-game run without a win seeing pressure piled on all concerned.

While Mourinho is embattled and United are reeling, his former club Chelsea are apparently revived under Maurizio Sarri, a 59-year-old former banker.

"He stripped Pogba of the captaincy, which I agreed with, but it was in front of the players". This game was really bad.

Jesse Lingard, Ander Herrera, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo missed training ahead of the match against Valencia on Tuesday. Jesse Lingard and Alexis Sanchez were not even in the matchday squad despite their attacking threat.
