Arsenal hero Merson: Mourinho self-belief knocked by Chelsea sacking

Arsenal hero Paul Merson says Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has had his confidence knocked by events at Chelsea.

Mourinho was sacked by his old club in December.

"I think he's tip-toeing at the moment," Merson told Sky Sports.

"I mean that in a way where he doesn't know what his best team is. I feel he's trying to keep everyone happy at the moment. What happened at Chelsea has knocked his confidence a little bit.

"Instead of going bang, bang, bang and making big decisions, it's been a bit more careful because of the situation of what happened at Chelsea. He needs to sort it out quickly and put out what he believes is his best team."
