According to the English outlet, the Portuguese manager was furious to see his line up on social media after he woke up on match-day for the game against Chelsea.
Earlier, Manchester United’s XI was leaked before the game against West Ham, which ended in a hopeless 3-1 loss for Mourinho’s side.
It is reported that only the players and the backroom staff knew about the playing XI for the game, and Maurizio Sarri and his staff gained insight into how United would set up after the line-up was leaked.
Manchester United XI leaked:
There were reports that Romelu Lukaku is set to face the axe after a series of poor performances, and if the leaked XI is anything to go by, the reports are true.
Jose Mourinho has benched the Belgian striker for an extra midfielder in Brazilian star Fred. The formation, by the looks of the XI, is likely to be 4-3-3 with Matic and Pogba being the other midfielders.
Rashford, Martial and Juan Mata complete the front-three, while club captain Antonio Valencia returns in the place of Ashley Young.
Here is the lineup:

It remains to be seen whether Mourinho fields the same XI once the team sheets come out, which would be in another half-an-hour.
