Paul Merson has launched a fresh attack on Manchester Uniteds players and says they should be embarrassed following Jose Mourinhos departure.

The Red Devils decided to part ways with former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss Mourinho earlier in the month following a poor start to the season.

United had slipped to eighth in the Premier League under Mourinho and were knocked out of the EFL Cup by Championship outfit Derby County.

Under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United have won their last two games, scoring eight goals in the process.

They need the clean sheet, but dont look as solid as they once were.

Solskjaer, meanwhile, has urged his team to maintain their momentum with another victory against Bournemouth on Sunday.

He said: When you win, everyone is happy so lets just keep that run going.

Weve got to focus on our performance against Bournemouth and get three points because the last two games have been fantastic.
