Whatever was going on behind the scenes, it appears the winger's future will now be at Old Trafford.
The Irish bookmaker tweeted: "Manchester United were a shambles tonight. We're not getting carried away of course".
"We've just got to start taking our chances and I am sure we will start winning more games". He could be gone by the time we've finished this segment.
Mourinho reminded the players they were on top at half time before their disastrous second half. Perhaps. Mourinho is the gift that keeps on giving for the back pages, and they'll miss him if he goes, but you can not help but feel he has been the master of his own destruction.
"The first goal was a real blow, we didn't understand why, because we had the game in hand". It's early in the season so we've got a lot of games to come and a lot of positive things from tonight. The only way to do that is to come to places like this and get the three points.
United will look to bounce back as they take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday.
Speaking at his post-match news conference on Monday night, Mourinho said: "I don't know what Phil Jones has - maybe a hamstring but I did not speak yet to know what it is - but we have Smalling, Lindelof and Eric Bailly".
Shaw will surely get another chance to start this weekend after another bright United display, while an England recall when Gareth Southgate names his first squad since the World Cup on Thursday would be deserved.
"I don't really care about my performance, I care more about the result and the team", Shaw told MUTV. Pogba did not produce the good form which saw him draw plaudits in United's other home game, the 2-1 win over Leicester but he has broken his silence after the loss.
