Jose Mourinho: Alexis Sanchez has not been good enough for Manchester United

United is off to its worst start in 28 years with 10 points through seven matches.

Despite the growing pressure on the manager, Shaw believes it is the players who need to shoulder the blame.

"We've got that in a couple of days time, so we've got to dust ourselves off quickly and get rid of the disappointment".

Former United defender Ferdinand stopped short of saying Mourinho should go, but did tell BT Sport: "It's hard to say that (it's the end game) but I believe the powers that be have a decision to make".

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.

"Until somebody that was a big professional player says "I was a dishonest player", I will always believe the players are honest players and want to give their best".

Mourinho said West Ham's first goal had been offside but admitted United had not been "aggressive" enough in defence in the lead-up to the Hammers' second before adding the referee was at fault prior to Arnautović's strike for not penalising a foul on Rashford. "I look at my team, whatever the other team is doing is not our stuff".

Pogba has been linked with a January move to Barcelona, while Juventus are also reportedly interested in buying the FIFA World Cup victor, who became football's most expensive player when he left the Serie A giants to return to United in August 2016.

"That didn't happen. It's disappointing and a very, very bad day for us".

"When you don't win two games in a row, there is more attention on you - we know that".

Left-back Shaw apologised to supporters for United's "awful" performance and said the players need to take a hard look at themselves while midfielder Juan Mata said he understood fans' frustrations.

"They have a good manager who wants to play the right way and wants to play good football", Lampard said.

"That shouldn't be happening".

"Games like this [at West Ham] we should be dominating, creating chances, showing people why we deserve to play for Manchester United".
