Sky Sports Pundit Paul Merson believes that Jose Mourinho could lose his job if Manchester United fails to take all three points against Fulham in the weekend.

The Manchester club have not won in their last four league games, with a loss and three consecutive draws limiting their ambitions for the top four. The Manchester club are currently in eight position, with eight point’s gap separating them from the top four.

On Saturday the Manchester club host Fulham, a fixture they are expect to return to winning ways and Paul Merson has backed the Red Devils. However the Sports analyst is of the opinion that any result less than a victory could lead to Mourinho’s departure from the club.

“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.”
