United are now second in the Premier League table, but they are 16 points behind league leaders Manchester City, with only eight games remaining.
Other United players, however, drew the ire of Mourinho, who accused unnamed members of his team of lacking the stomach for the fight and believes those who are good enough to play for Manchester United will cope with his harsh criticism. Once more I wasn't happy with the connection in the build-up.
And the Special One has now laid bare his thoughts on Shaw's performance, with the England worldwide most likely facing another spell out of the side as a result. I felt that. So I have nothing to lose in relation to that.
He said: "Scott played the worst match since he played in the first team".
"When you play for Manchester United, supporters always expect you to win trophies - we will fight until the end".
Aaron Judge gets recruiting refresher from Brian Cashman
Judge said he made the comments to Machado on the field before an exhibition game in Sarasota. The league released a statement saying it reached out to the Yankees about the incident.
But alarm bells began ringing when Shaw failed to emerge after the half-time break and Ashley Young took his place on the left side of the Red Devils' back four.
"My calculation is that without pressure they don't perform well - what can I lose?"
"Because you played very bad, you played very bad, but you did the basic things one player has to do".
"When it is dark and cold, and in football that means a period of bad results or a bad result like what happened to us a couple of days ago, not everybody has the confidence and the personality to play really - because to be on the pitch and touch the ball every five minutes, anyone can do it, but to be on the pitch and say "give me the ball because I want to play", that is a little bit more hard and not everyone were able to do it". He was not afraid to play.
He explained: "It was really important the two full-backs were aggressive and I didn't have that with Luke Shaw and Antonio Valencia".
"At least Antonio was capable of some good positioning".
