Defeat At West Ham Piles More Pressure On Mourinho

Jose Mourinho is under even more pressure after his Manchester United side lost 3-1 at the London Stadium against West Ham, meaning they’ve taken just 10 points from their first seven matches of the season.

That represents their worst start to a season in 29 years and comes just days after they were knocked out of the League Cup at home to Frank Lampard’s Derby County.

Mourinho will be frustrated at how events unfolded, as there was an offside at Felipe Anderson‘s fifth-minute opener and the second goal in the 43rd minute was an own goal, with Andriy Yarmolenko‘s effort going past David De Gea via Victor Lindelof.

The United response, though, was almost non-existent and it wasn’t until Marcus Rashford‘s goal in the 71st minute that they looked like salvaging anything.

That notion was quickly dispelled, however, as Marko Arnautovic restored the home side’s two-goal lead in the 74th minute.

That made it 3-1 and that was how it would finish, leaving Mourinho in an even stickier situation than he was before this weekend.
