Mourinho set to drop big names after latest United stumble

United suffered a shock 1-0 home loss to West Brom on Sunday, handing the title to Manchester City, and Mourinho said his team were the "masters of complication".

The defender was part of the English giants' humiliating 1-0 defeat to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, and according to the Daily Mirror, the former Chelsea boss is now ready to replace him with the Leicester City and England global Harry Maguire.

Manchester United won both the Europa League and League Cup in Mourinho's first campaign in charge last season.

"As I was saying, eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues and the last Premier League was not 20 years ago, was three years ago", Mourinho was quoted as saying by Reuters. Mourinho said United's inconsistency was down to attitude, and not age, after being asked if he was getting enough from his experienced players.

"The word is not rotation". It is an opportunity for some to play and try to get a place in the team for Spurs. "Some of the guys that played today don't have a place in that team, they don't have a place in that team".

It never looked like being the start of an incredible comeback, even if PSG evidently eased off slightly after the restart. The lead was doubled three minutes later when Cavani made up for his earlier miss by turning home Yuri Berchiche's cross.

Mourinho added: "What is the criteria for a manager to choose a team?" This is the only way I can select players.

United manager Mourinho said: "I knew that sooner or later that (they) would be (champions) and if I was in their position I would be very upset if somebody said that they won the title because Manchester United lost against West Bromwich Albion. The only way is to go with performance".

The Red Devils won the game after a brace from Paul Pogba, as well as a timely finish from Chris Smalling, and after the match, reports surfaced that the United players had celebrated boisterously in the changing rooms.

Paul Pogba might be one of them, having been substituted in the 58th minute partly because of his poor display but also because he was on a yellow card. Pogba was hooked before the hour, although he had not had a awful game and Mourinho explained it was due to being on a yellow card, suggesting he is keen the Frenchman is available for the weekend.

"And playing with only two midfield players, you can not play with one player in risk of not being able to make a foul".
