To come to Manchester United and not to just nick one, but I think to play the way we played, doing all the things we have been working towards in a short space of time.

Derby County manager Frank Lampard has admitted that he was "shell-shocked" by his side's victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford this evening.

"Modern players need to look in the mirror but the manager has to take responsibility".

Mourinho was reportedly unhappy with that perceived criticism of the tactics and had criticised his team after the match saying, "It is a situation where the players knew perfectly that they press in midfield", Mourinho said.

It is not the first time the attitude of United's players has been questioned this season.

"That is part of the strength of the squad and that's what you need when you are getting into hard times, like Man United are in at the moment".

It was a downbeat conclusion to a torrid day for United after relations between Mourinho and French World Cup victor Pogba reportedly hit a new low.

THE BUST-UP: De Bruyne began the 2013-14 season in Mourinho's Chelsea starting line-up, having impressed on loan at Werder Bremen.

After squabbling with United's hierarchy over their failure to sign the targets Mourinho wanted, he has become embroiled in a feud with Pogba amid increasingly alarming results.

Mourinho declined to give a specific reason for his latest decision in what has developed into an ongoing spat between him and the 25-year-old.

Paul Pogba takes aim at Mourinho’s negative tactics
Paul Pogba has slammed those who "create drama" after he appeared to criticise Manchester United 's tactics under Jose Mourinho . I don't know how many games we've had at home - three - and we've got only four points.

Whether that means Manchester United ultimately will sell Pogba to Barcelona, back to Juventus or elsewhere will be among the hottest topics of the Premier League season.

Carragher came to the defence of Mourinho by pointing to his time at Chelsea as evidence that it is not him with the problem and insisted United would be wise to stick with him through this hard period.

"When you play these games, you have to show that intensity and go further than the opposition".

The retired England midfielder took over the reins of Derby in the summer as Lampard got his managerial career under way.

But Derby had United on the ropes with their slick passing.

Moments later, United goalkeeper Sergio Romero saw red for handling another Wilson effort outside the area.

"When you play, you do the best that you can, and when you speak, you have to be careful what you say".

Things got more hard for United when Romero was dismissed for handball outside his area and Derby capitalised through Jack Marriott, but Fellaini forced a shootout with a last-gasp equaliser.

The France midfielder was rested for the clash and watched on from the stands.
