Manchester United will look to put one foot in the knockout stages of the Champions League when they take on Young Boys at Old Trafford this evening.

"They had moments of good football, hypothetical attractive goals, but then also moments of pressure, a lack of confidence that frustrated us".

"The season I didn't play Champions League, I won the Europa League".

Mourinho, who is confident that De Gea will sign a new contract, knows there are better teams in the competition, defended his own record in the competition.

After securing qualification from Group H with a game to spare, United will now turn their attention to improving their position in the Premier League table, starting with Saturday's trip to Southampton.

'I know his agent is happy to do what the player wants and I also know the board want him to stay.

Though United did emerge victorious on Tuesday, they could have easily gone a goal down in the second half.

"And always at the end of the game we win, he can switch (make substitutions) well", Fred told Esporte Interativo.


"But it is still very hard to score".

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes slated his former team for their "awful" performance in a 1-0 win over Young Boys on Tuesday.

Well, based on Mourinho's reaction to Marouane Fellaini's stoppage time goal, not exactly.

"If I saw my manager react like that, I would be absolutely livid!"

"But I think maybe is better to have lots of holidays in Barbados and go to television screen and touch the electronic dummies, is much more comfortable than be on touchline like we managers we are. For the ones that have a nice life, it's different".

Lineker said on BT Sport: "Looking at his bench and then shaking his head".

Marcus Rashford, one of their livelier players, was also their most wasteful, missing five opportunities, including an outstanding one in the opening five minutes. "If you can not deal with that, that's a big problem".

"So, don't speak about Lukaku and you tell me Lukaku doesn't score a goal at Old Trafford since March".
