Is It Time For Manchester United To Sack Jose Mourinho?

Mourinho became the first person in England's Premier league - player or coach - to be sent off twice this season during United's 1-1 draw at home to West Ham United on Sunday.

The stalemate against West Ham was United's fourth consecutive draw at Old Trafford and, in addition, Mourinho has now guided the club to its worst start in Premier League history - since the change of league format in 1992.

I'm talking mainly about the Premier League games at Old Trafford, which is even more upsetting because playing in front of our fans is an extra, and that's how we feel.

"The way Mourinho lost his temper, culminating in him booting a water bottle a long way down the touchline, is clear for all to see".

It is still only November but it is hard to imagine that the recent dropped points at home against sides that should be brushed aside will not prove costly come May. Pogba set up Zlatan Ibrahimovic to nod in the equalizer in the 21st minute.

He had to watch from afar as his side drew a fourth consecutive home game in the Premier League, with the Red Devils spurning several chances to score a victor after Zlatan Ibrahimovic had cancelled out Diafra Sakho's early headed goal.

"West Ham are a good side - it is not easy to stop them creating chances".

"The Portuguese was warned on that occasion about his future conduct by the Football Association, who may now take a dim view of another unsavoury incident so soon after the Burnley offence", says the Daily Telegraph. "That would be very important because these few weeks are going to be very demanding, and every single team in the competition will struggle to get good results".

The France midfielder will now be suspended for Wednesday's EFL Cup quarter-final against West Ham.

They might be in one of the Europa League spots as things stand, but at the moment it's mid-table mediocrity for Mourinho's men.

That is something United are just having to get used to.

Narrow wins over Stoke and Southampton were followed by a comprehensive 3-0 win over rivals Liverpool to leave the Reds third in the league, but a subsequent run of one win in five saw them lose ground in the title race.

We took a look at how things panned out for Mourinho's predecessors.
