Tommy Docherty: 'Manchester United must get rid of Paul Pogba'

From Noble to Mourinho Winners and losers as West Ham add to Man Utd’s woes

One has to wonder just how much longer Jose Mourinho has left as manager of Manchester United.

Jurgen Klopp's men recorded a 1-1 draw away at Chelsea on Saturday, extending their lead over Manchester United, who went down to a 3-1 defeat at West Ham United.

United now sit 10th in the Premier League, winning three matches, drawing one and losing three.

Players and staff were said to be openly discussing the prospect of Mourinho losing his job, as they made the journey back by train to Manchester on Saturday afternoon.

United's build-up to the match against West Ham was overshadowed by the growing rift between Mourinho and Paul Pogba, who was stripped of the vice-captaincy before their League Cup exit against Championship side Derby in midweek.

"The basics are not being done and something has to be said."Speaking to BT Sport, Ferdinand said, "There will be conversations at the top level about the future of the manager and the squad". At this pace, he likely doesn't make it past Halloween as manager of United.

Manchester United´s David de Gea looks dejected after West Ham´s third goal. United were trailing inside the first five minutes of the match and never looked like fighting back, especially with a three-man defence.

Trump calls Kavanaugh allegations ‘a big, fat con job’
Trump said this could affect the way others who want to step into higher positions. "I never sexual assaulted anyone", he said. The backdrop for the president's fervent defence of Kavanaugh is his belief that men can be ruined by false accusations.

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.

"But the problem is, I don't think Paul Pogba is on his own if he's voicing these types of things".

"I wanted to play Martial, it's something (people) are asking for a long, long, long time", he said.

The contrast with Manchester City could not be more marked, with Pep Guardiola's high rollers brushing aside the limited challenge of Brighton with goals from Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero, who linked superbly with the Englishman to net his seventh goal in all competitions this season.

Mourinho seems more focused on picking internal battles rather than motivating his players and preventing a display as disjointed as the one in east London that followed a League Cup loss to second-tier club Derby on Tuesday.

Mourinho's third season at the club hasn't started in the best possible way.
