"We didn't look like a team that was going to beat West Ham".
José Mourinho defended his decision to play Anthony Martial instead of Alexis Sánchez after a 3-1 loss away to West Ham on Saturday condemned Manchester United to a third defeat in seven Premier League games - their worst start to a domestic campaign in almost 30 years.
United's haul of 10 points from seven games matches their return at this stage of the season under David Moyes in 2013-14 but their inferior goal difference means this is their worst top-flight start since they picked up seven points in 1989-90.
"We continued playing in the same way and improving because without believing in your performance it's very hard to be a good team".
Manchester United should consider cutting their losses with Alexis Sanchez, former Irish defender Kevin Kilbane has claimed.
United, who finished second last season behind Manchester City, already appear to be out of the title race and problems on the pitch are compounded by a growing rift between the manager and Paul Pogba.
"When you play a long time with another team and you play different football in that other team you have some kind of adaptation that you have to have", said the Frenchman.

Worked my butt off to get here - I busted my buns, I lifted weights. "Well guess what, I'm not backing down, you sons of bitches". That's the first of many, many mentions of beer. "My parents, and Alyssa freaking Milano", Damon said.
"If you want the truth I think it was honestly horrendous".
In the wake of Saturday's dismal 3-1 defeat against West Ham, Mata has opted to put his blog on hold while the team fight to regain their focus amid rumblings of a schism between Jose Mourinho and his senior players.
"Every player is different, no player is the same", Mourinho added.
"For me, I played one of the worst games since I signed for Man Utd".
"I saw them past year playing against Chelsea in the cup and I thought they handled themselves brilliantly". He knows that his manager is losing support from players and that the supporters are also running out of patience with both the results and style of play. "I don't believe any player goes onto the pitch to not give his best".
"I'm not asking you who did you speak to this morning or your last phone call". I see upset people, some people that don't look like they lost a game.
