Manchester United stars have been  with the awful results they have been posting even at Old Trafford which hitherto used to be a fortress for the Red Devils.

This development is obviously not going down well with the manager, Jose Mourinho who has lambasted his players for their lack of hunger.

The manager formerly known as the 'Special One' addressed the media following Manchester United's embarrassing PK exit from the League Cup.

Needless to say, his first words were not filled with hope for his footballers, since he took dig after dig against them, blaming his squad for Tuesday's result.

"We could have but we didn't kill it in the first half. I repeated the words I said in the last match. Their dressing room is a dressing room with belief and we need to go and kill the game which we didn't," Mourinho said.

Mourinho's subsequent words hint that his speech is no longer having an effect on Manchester United's players, mainly due to their lack of desire after Derby's equalizer.

"The truth is the opponent in the second half started better than us, we (only) responded at 1-1. I prefer to go for it but we only go for it after the 1-1. After the red card we are in difficulty but even after that we have a group that tried until the last second," Mourinho added.

Then, Mourinho referred to Phil Jones, sharing an unflattering remark about his player's capability of scoring a penalty.

"Going after the sixth and seventh I knew we would be in trouble with (Phil) Jones and Eric (Bailly)," the coach said.
