United's winless run in front of their own supporters at Old Trafford now dates back to the opening weekend of the Premier League season following Tuesday's 0-0 draw against Valencia in the Champions League.
Manchester United's owners, the Glazer family, believe Jose Mourinho can still restore an air of calm at Old Trafford and kick-start the team's season, sources have told ESPN FC, despite growing concerns within the club over the manager's inability to halt the worrying slump in form.
The French World Cup victor, who was last week told he would not captain the side again, appeared to get under Mourinho's skin after their recent draw with Wolves by saying United should attack more.
"But what you do as a footballer, and I've had one or two disagreements, when you cross that line you play for your team".
The former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager has also informed Sanchez, he might never play for the Red Devils again until he changes his way of life.

The Chinese government claimed to be "a resolute defender of cybersecurity" in statements to Bloomberg . Bloomberg said its report was based on confirmations of the hack by 17 unnamed people.
But according to the Times' Paul Hirst, Mourinho is keen to stay on as manager but feels concerned by the lack of outward support from the board amid criticism from the likes of Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand, and the wider footballing world.
"Maybe I am speaking with a bit of bias but I predict that United will win this, but it won't be easy and it will be close".
"I have played at St James Park plenty of times and it was a hard place to play football".
But if you're a footballer for Man United and you put that jersey on and walk out and don't give 100 per cent because you might be upset with somebody, then good luck to Mourinho in this job.
'I do not want to interfere in their affairs, everything is clear with Paul, you have to balance things out. On your bad days you roll your sleeves up and you fight for that jersey.
