5 things we learned from the Premier League this weekend

Valencia manager Marcelino García Toral spoke to the press ahead of Tuesday's Champions League clash at Old Trafford.

"If you have such an incredible atmosphere in the stadium after a defeat. the players left everything on the grass - without any reward that's true - but if you perform consistently. the reward will come", Wagner said.

Mourinho agreed, saying: "Exactly, (it) is a collective thing, the reason why we don't win is responsibility of everybody". It's down to everybody. "We're the ones who go on the pitch", said Shaw. "I see different actions but what you see is not really inside".

Alexis Sanchez, with only three goals in 23 games since his move from Arsenal in January, was axed for Saturday's game at West Ham; Marcus Rashford has been rebuked for failing to warm down correctly after a Champions League game.

But Shaw, whose past issues with his manager have been well-publicised, claims that Mourinho isn't exclusively to blame for the team's shortcomings.

"Ask the guy behind you, he was the one who wrote it", Mourinho responded, referring to Sun journalist Neil Custis.

Carragher believes that Mourinho has lost the dressing room because of his decision to criticise players in front of their teammates. It's very hard but this is football, this is life. "I look in the mirror at my mistakes and want to do better".

"For me, I played one of the worst games since I signed for Man United". He said that he has been preparing his side to win but is very aware that the home team are favourites, and have all the attention due to their current situation with their manager.

If he doesn't play well, questions will be directed either at him or the manager.

United's 10 points from seven games is the same as in 2013-14 under David Moyes, but an inferior goal difference means this is their worst top-flight start since they picked up seven points in 1989-90.

"Everybody in the club has a role to play - the kit man has a role to play, the nutritionist has a role to play, I have a role to play".

Ashley Young picked up an injury at West Ham, while Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera and Jesse Lingard are also on the sidelines, MUTV reported.
