West Ham United plunged Manchester United deeper into crisis on Saturday in the Premier League, as they earned a comfortable 3-1 win over the Red Devils at London Stadium.
The visitors got off to the worst possible start, with Felipe Anderson finishing expertly after Pablo Zabaleta’s cross in the fifth minute. The Hammers doubled their advantage before the break, when Andriy Yarmolenko’s shot deflected off Victor Lindelof and in.
After the interval, United manager Jose Mourinho withdrew Paul Pogba from the game in search of a response, and his side immediately got one back through Marcus Rashford’s stunning flick.
However, hope of a comeback was short-lived, as Marko Arnautovic found acres of space in the United defence and had time to finish past David De Gea.

That should be it for José Mourinho. Can definitely see him labouring on, but he’s lost the dressing room, unsettled in choosing a system, keeps brutally criticising his own players and does not have the same magic and charm he once had. The game has moved on.

Jose Mourinho on why Man United lost to West Ham: “One goal is offside, the second goal is own goal and the third goal is referee’s mistake.” pic.twitter.com/NslYlW1eKV

Mourinho: “I want to play Martial. Something that you are asking for a long, long, long time to play Martial, I left Alexis out, and I think that Martial is not a player very, very, very focused on his defensive duties.” #mufc [MEN]

There is absolutely no possible case for keeping Mourinho. Nothing positive is happening; the results are terrible, he isn’t getting the best out of our players, he isn’t developing young players, the football is disgusting with crazy decisions
