The attacker was then left out in the cold as he was dropped from Mourinho’s squad altogether for the 3-1 defeat at the London Stadium.

Sanchez has struggled for United this season – failing to find the net in his five appearances to date.

That is despite having his first summer off for nine years, with the Chilean not involved in the World Cup – unlike most of his club teammates.

Felipe Anderson’s early strike, a Victor Lindelof own-goal and Marko Arnautovic’s finish has left Mourinho’s job in real jeopardy.

It capped off a miserable week for Mourinho and co, after their shock Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Derby, as well as the manager’s relationship with Paul Pogba reaching an all-time low.

Furious United fans took to social media calling for the ex-Chelsea boss to axed after the lifeless display in east London.

The Red Devils – who have suffered their worst-ever start to a Premier League season – are already nine points behind unbeaten duo Manchester City and Liverpool.
