GETTY OFFSIDE Premier League LIVE scores Goal updates from Arsenal v Watford and other 3pm games

After a third loss in seven English Premier League games so far, Jose Mourinho was quick to apportion blame for Manchester United's collapse at West Ham. At his pre-match press conference today, he would not confirm whether he has spoken to the United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward or to Zinédine Zidane, reportedly a candidate to replace him, but he did hint that not every player appeared to share his anguish after their latest setback on Saturday.

"But then I talked with the board here, with the manager, and I say OK you don't want me to leave, I can stay no problem". No player is the...

"I think some care more than others", Mourinho said.

Jose Mourinho is fighting for his future at Old Trafford when his side faces Valencia in a Champions League clash.

"The performance on the pitch, in my opinion, is the outcome of many factors - of many factors".

"There were big players in the past and I ask these people with great reputations if at any time in their careers they went to a game not to give the maximum, not to help the club, not to make the fans happy and not to try his best".

"I think he is very able to play my way with his characteristics".

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

Alexis Sanchez, with only three goals in 23 games since his move from Arsenal in January, was axed for Saturday's game at West Ham; Marcus Rashford has been rebuked for failing to warm down correctly after a Champions League game.

West Ham have proved a few wins can result in an elevation up the table, while Wolves' strong start shows not all newly-promoted clubs need to be in trouble.

Perhaps there also needs to be a clear-the-air meeting at which he might start by admitting a mistake or two although, to quote another famous rocker, sorry seems to be the hardest word. It also meant Paul Pogba had nobody to link with, hence his frustration in the middle.

In fact, the best football United played this season was against Spurs when they lost 3-0.

Pogba was stripped of the vice-captaincy last week, but one of Mourinho's most trusted lieutenants, Nemanja Matic, believes leadership is about how you perform on the pitch, rather than wearing the armband. United's fiercest rivals City and Liverpool have benefited from Mohamed Salah and Kevin de Bruyne being discarded by the Portuguese during his time at Chelsea.
