Under-fire Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes some of his misfiring squad "care more than others" as speculation mounts over whether the Portuguese coach's time in charge at Old Trafford is coming to an end.
Having also gone out of the Carabao Cup last week, on penalties to Championship-side Derby County, United desperately need a positive result against Valencia to relieve the mounting pressure on Mourinho.
In addition to the problems on the pitch, Mourinho confirmed last week that Paul Pogba would not captain the side again after he had implicitly criticised the manager by urging the team to attack more.
"I don't think [Luke] Shaw is a Man United player". I think individually, and as a team we were bad.
Pogba, who appears determined to leave United as soon as possible, was poor against West Ham and was substituted after 70 minutes.

But by the end of the tournament, Woods' odds had been trimmed to 9-1, ahead of Spieth's, at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas. Up next, Woods will compete for the United States team in the Ryder Cup in France, beginning on September 28.
"Apart from Marcos Rojo, now we have Ander Herrera, Ashley Young and Jesse Lingard out", Mourinho said. It's hard to take. I see upset people, some people that don't look like they lost a game.
"That's not good enough".
Mourinho is believed to have stayed behind in London with his family after the loss, leading to the players to openly talking about the prospect of the tactician leaving.
Mourinho's time at Old Trafford may be running out, particularly if he fails to summon a response when United host Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday. "It was not good enough from a Man Utd team with all the talent we have".
"Today, my blog post is shorter than usual". When asked whether he wanted to stop and talk about the performance the midfielder smiled and said: "You want me dead?"
Pogba was replaced by Mourinho during the second half at London Stadium to wrap up a week of controversy involving the pair, who were seemingly involved in a training ground confrontation on Wednesday.
