Sky Sports Pundit explains why Jose Mourinho could be sacked on Monday

JOSE MOURINHO could be sacked as Manchester United manager if they fail to beat Fulham on Saturday.

That is according to Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson.

Manchester United have failed to win their last four league games and slipped 18 points behind leaders Man City.

United are also eighth in the table, eight points off a place in the top four.

Mourinho’s position at Old Trafford has come under increasing scrutiny especially as he clashes with key members of his squad.

On Saturday, United host Fulham and will be desperate to get back to winning ways and restore confidence.

Speaking in his weekly predictions, Merson backed United to get all three points.

But the Soccer Saturday pundit feels anything other than a win could lead to Mourinho’s exit.

“I see a return to winning ways for Manchester United against Fulham at Old Trafford,” Merson told Sky Sports.

“However, if they do not win this game Jose Mourinho will do well to keep his job come Monday.

“If they can’t beat Fulham at home where are they going?

“At the moment we are talking about it being a feat if they get into the top four so this is a must-win game.

“If they don’t win the game I would be shocked if Mourinho was there on Monday.

“I don’t see it coming to that though because if there was one team you’d pick to play it would be Fulham.

“They did alright against Chelsea but it was just okay, they were never going to win.

“Fulham have improved under Claudio Ranieri since his arrival but they have to start winning games soon.

“It won’t be this weekend though.”
