According to Jose Mourinho “some [players] care more than others” at the club after their failure to win any of their past three games.
They have slipped to 10th in the Premier League table.
Moreover, they were also knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Championship side Derby. Asked if the coach is worried about his position, he replied: “No.”
“Every player is different, no player is the same,” he said. “I see different actions but what you see is not really inside. I see upset people, some people that don’t look like they lost a game. I see so-so but in the little two sessions of training we had [since Saturday] everything was normal, desire to work and play.”
Mourinho added: “What I can do to improve things I do, and I will improve the things that depend on me and my work.” He was asked if he had spoken to clubs executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward since losing to the Hammers.
He responded: “That’s a private matter. I’m not asking who you speak to. That’s a private matter.” United midfielder Nemanja Matic played in the West Ham defeat said: “When you play for Manchester United everyone expects you win the games. When you don’t win two games in a row, there is more attention on you – we know that.
“This game was really bad. I don’t believe any player goes onto the pitch and doesn’t try.” Speaking about Shaw’s comments, Mourinho said: “He says ‘we players are on the pitch, we have to perform, we have to give more’.
“I like that perspective but I don’t agree totally. It is all of us, everybody in the club has a role to play. When we win we all win. When we lose we all lose. And when we lose it’s the responsibility of everyone.”
