Manchester United have not won in their last four matches across all competitions.
"At half-time we are losing 2-0 and I know we can do better what we are doing". That stretch has seen them lose to West Ham in Premier League play and Championship side Derby County on penalties in League Cup play, plus draws against newly-promoted Wolves in the league and most recently a boring 0-0 finish against Spanish side Valencia.
"It's unacceptable, and I have to say that Jose Mourinho will get the biggest support he's ever had in his life tomorrow in that ground". When United capitulated timidly before the most mediocre of opposition and the fates conspired cruelly against him at a stunned Old Trafford.
"They have a very, very, very good coach a team that is always very well organised against especially the teams of the first part of the table where their manager is very bright on his analysis of the opponent's qualities and to try to stop them", said Mourinho in his press conference, as quoted by The Chronicle.
The goals led Mourinho to take Eric Bailly off after just 19 minutes, replacing him with Mata, and his defensive adjustments did not end there.
"This is the fourth manager in six years, so you have to start looking at the people who appoint the manager". I absolutely love it to death, it's been my life.
The former England full-back added: "Eventually I've got to stand up and say, "look, I'm not good enough to do this".
Speaking on Sky Sports, Neville slammed the club without naming names, saying that the problems at his former club ran higher than the manager. The tail is wagging the dog.
"I think it's a ridiculous talk because the players, they do not play for the manager", Mourinho said. I'm sad if he goes.
Christian Atsu hopes Newcastle United pile compound the misery of fellow strugglers Manchester United ahead of the meeting of the two sides on Saturday.
