Mourinho poised to axe Man United stars

Jose Mourinho reveals why Alexis Sanchez struggled after joining Man Utd

Mourinho was expecting a continuation of the previous week, when they came from two goals behind to beat City at the Etihad Stadium to deny them the league trophy that day. The starting line-up included Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Juan Mata, Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera.

The Frenchman has been left on the bench or taken off in seven of his last 11 games.

It has been something of a disappointing second season in charge for Mourinho at Old Trafford following his appointment back in May 2016.

Mourinho said United's inconsistency was down to attitude, and not age, after being asked if he was getting enough from his experienced players.

Mourinho said some players will pay the price by not featuring against Bournemouth on Wednesday and potentially against Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday.

Some of the guys who played [against West Brom], they don't have a place in that team.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says his team celebrated in a "classy" manner amid claims Manchester City players were taunted in the wake of the recent derby. I only know one criteria, it's the way you play. It is the way they play, is the only way I can select players.

'If I play a player against Bournemouth and the player is phenomenal, he plays the semi-final.

During the week too, Mourinho called his players professionalism in question, accusing them of not giving it their all against West Brom.

Turin newspaper Tuttosport are now treating Anthony Martial and Matteo Darmian as a pair.

Jan 31: Pogba subbed after 63 minutes in Manchester United's defeat at Spurs.

Feb 3: On the bench for the next game against Huddersfield. 'We were deservedly punished, ' he said.

Feb 21: McTominay starts ahead of Pogba with the £89m man on the bench against Sevilla in the Champions League last 16.

The 25-year-old defender is believed to be valued at about £35 million (R602 million), and his performances for the Foxes this season have put him on the radars of some of the Premier League's elite. His form is nothing to do with his injury'.

"Probably because I won eight championships I was not on the moon with the victory against them because that doesn't make me feel super-happy".
