'Some players care more than others': Mourinho on Manchester United's poor form

"We didn't look like a team today that was going to beat West Ham".

The 3-1 defeat to West Ham on Saturday was United's third in their opening seven Premier League games, contributing to their worst start to a season for 29 years.

The defeat makes it their worst start to a topflight season after seven games since 1989 and Gary Neville has traced United's woes since David Moyes was sacked in 2014.

He added: "What I can do to improve things I do and I will improve the things that depend on me and my work".

The report indicates that the January signing from Arsenal - allegedly the English top flight's best-paid player on £350,000 a week - is already regretting his move between clubs.

"It was not good enough from a Manchester United team with all the talent we have", said Shaw, 23.

Manchester United should consider cutting their losses with Alexis Sanchez, former Irish defender Kevin Kilbane has claimed.

Daniel Farke's side sit one point and four places above Derby - who are ninth - in the Championship table and their success comes as no surprise to Lampard.

"If you want the truth I think it was honestly horrendous", Shaw told reporters.

"Every player is different, no player is the same", Mourinho said on Monday ahead of the team's clash with Valencia at Old Trafford on Tuesday. 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. He knows that his manager is losing support from players and that the supporters are also running out of patience with both the results and style of play. "So I would like to think it bodes for a good game". When asked whether he wanted to stop and talk, the midfielder smiled, laughed and said: "You want me dead?"

Asked what Mourinho had said in the dressing room afterwards, Shaw replied: "We didn't speak too much". They do it, they don't do it that's a different story, but I repeat I am naive or I still believe the player is an honest man. It's hard to take and we're sorry to the fans for what they saw. "We're the ones who go on the pitch".
