Manchester United head into a crucial fixture against Arsenal with few now believing that the so-called Special One has the ability to stop the rot
What Jose Mourinho has to do in order to turn around the situation at Manchester United is quite straightforward. He needs to win more matches than Arsenal, Tottenham and the other contenders for the Champions League places between now and the end of the season. They are currently eight points outside the top four, trailing not only the rest of the big six but also Bournemouth and Everton.
He needs to play better football which maximises the output of the multi-talented attacking players in his squad and pleases better the supporters whose patience is wearing thin.
He needs to foster better relationships with the players within the squad – most notably Paul Pogba. Mourinho is alleged to have described the France World Cup winner as a ‘virus’ after the dismal 2-2 draw against Southampton at the weekend.
Editors’ Picks

And he needs to get on with it all quickly, starting with Wednesday night’s Old Trafford showdown with Arsenal.
Unai Emery’s team are no doubt in good spirits following a combative North London Derby victory over Tottenham. United, meanwhile, must be at rock bottom. They are haemorrhaging goals and points to clubs they should be putting to the sword.
Their draw against the Saints saw them fall two behind before a rally to rescue a result. It was the eighth time in 14 Premier League games that they had conceded the first goal.
And heading into the Arsenal game, Mourinho could well be without most of his recognised defenderswith Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang coming to town as the league’s top goalscorer.
The scale of Mourinho’s task is clear. Whether he’s got the knowhow or expertise to manage his way out of the hole he currently inhabits is another thing altogether. There is nothing to suggest that Mourinho can do it.
