Furious Mourinho has made known his desire to “axe” some of his senior players after their poor showing at Huddersfield Town.
United has been in blistering form this season but was shocked by high flying Huddersfield who was 2 goals clear at the break at John Smith.
After the disastrous outing at Yorkshire, the Portuguese turned his anger towards his spineless players and blasted the Team’s ramshackle performance.
Mourinho demanded in training ahead of the clash with Tottenham at Old Trafford for some United stars to improve or risk being exempt from the starting lineup.
After United’s loss to Huddersfield, United are level on points with the London side ahead of their clash on Saturday.
Defence Set For Revamp
Manchester United needs to improve on their defensive play if they are to keep the Premier league’s most lethal finisher, Harry Kane, from decimating the Red Devils defense line.
Kane is arguably the Premier League’s foremost poacher; his goals against Liverpool demonstrated the English Man’s resolve to make every dead ball situation come alive.
Mourinho has tasked his players ahead of the Saturday game, to deliver at training or risk being exempt from the first team line-up this weekend.
Mourinho heavily criticized Martial and Herrera for their loss to Huddersfield, and Juan Mata was also lambasted by Mourinho for the first goal.
However, Eric Baily’s return after injury to first-team training is a major boost to Mourinho’s aspirations for Saturday.
Baily sustained the injury with his National side, Cote d’Ivoire, during the last International Break. Mourinho is counting on his fitness to spare united further blushes.
