United’s have 26 points, after 17 games, their worst start in the top flight since 1990-91.
Mourinho also fell out with many players, including £89m record signing Paul Pogba, who was an unused substitute for the defeat at Anfield on Sunday.
Again, Mourinho has failed to complete his fourth season in a club. He was also sacked twice by Chelsea and by Real Madrid.
