Manchester United gaffer Jose Mourinho has explained that his team lost 3-1 to West Ham due to poor officiating.

The loss meant that United have not won a game in their last three matches, pilling much pressure on Mourinho.

He also blamed the fans for making him buckle under pressure and dropped Alexis Sanchez against West Ham.

Sanchez was left out of the team for the game on Saturday as the Red Devils went down to the Hammers.

Speaking after the game, he said: “Look, for many months people have been asking for Martial, Martial, Martial.

“For many months people have been saying that Alexis Sanchez has not been playing well enough.

“So this week it was time to agree and to say let’s give a chance to Martial and let’s leave Alexis out.”

He added that “I think a team that comes with that mental fragility of the bad results come here and is losing 1-0 isn’t the best way to start.

“A goal offside, last Tuesday with VAR wouldn’t be a goal, but no VAR, linesman mistake and a goal.

“The third goal isn’t a mistake from the linesman but rather the referee, it was a clear foul on Rashford from Zabaleta.”
