Jose Mourinho‘s side dropped more points in the Premier League at the weekend, only managing a 1-1 draw against newly-promoted Wolves.
And now, as preparations begin for the Carabao Cup clash with Derby, United’s players were back at the training ground and ready to go again.

United sit seventh in the Premier League after the opening month of the season, and there is growing unrest at Old Trafford regarding the team’s style of play.
Indeed, Paul Pogba spoke out about Mourinho’s defensive strategy, urging United to ‘attack, attack, attack’ in home matches.
‘When we are at home we should attack, attack, attack,’ said United’s £89million record signing. ‘That’s Old Trafford. We are here to attack. I think teams are scared when they see Man United attacking and attacking. That was our mistake today.
‘We were winning 1-0 so it was positive for us. Then we tried to defend a bit more against the counter-attack. We stopped playing forward like in the first half and we didn’t put them in trouble.

‘We are at Old Trafford and we should just attack and press like we did against Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal last season. When we play like that it’s easier for us.’
United come up against Frank Lampard’s Derby County on Tuesday night in the Carabao Cup, a game which should see some fringe stars get the chance to play.
That said, Mourinho is unlikely to take the game lightly in what represents one of United’s best opportunities for silverware this season.
