Manchester United's Champions League win against Young Boys 'lucky', says Danny Murphy

Manchester United's Champions League win against Young Boys 'lucky', says Danny Murphy

I want the team to go immediately and it is a bit frustrating (when they do not).

But United's slow starts have continued to hamper them this season as they are well off the pace in the PL.

Manchester United could move for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Axel Witsel at the end of the season, according to a report.

Although victory against Young Boys will guarantee United's passage to the knockout stage - providing Juventus avoid defeat by Valencia - Mourinho's side failed to score in recent home European games against Valencia and Juve, and Shaw conceded they are feeling the heat. We just depend on ourselves. "But I want to play from minute one like it is the last chance we have to qualify", Mourinho said.

"I never felt pressure to play at home".

Their current average of 1.3 goals per game at Old Trafford is nearly half the total the team were scoring at home in Ferguson's final campaign.

But, not for the first time, Shaw dug deep and came out fighting, winning a starting berth at United, the club's player of the month for August and September, an England recall and new deal until at least 2023.




United will be without Victor Lindelof for several weeks after he suffered a suspected thigh injury against Palace, with Mourinho hopeful of having the Sweden centre-half back for the hectic Christmas period. Matteo Darmian is also missing, but it will be intriguing to look at the lineup Mourinho selects as he suggested there was a lack of physicality in central midfield against Palace.

The combative Portuguese coach also confirmed that United should have no problem when it comes to getting to this home game.

"Let's forget [the last group game] against Valencia".

Sadly, the warnings of potential chaos came to fruition, with many supporters and city centre workers alike struggling to move an inch in bad congestion.

Mourinho hopes hold-ups will be avoided this time after switching hotels to stay just a goal-kick away from the ground - in the Hilton Garden Inn at the Old Trafford cricket ground.

" It was a very big challenge for me, with some of the things he's said in the past, especially in the last year or two years."
"If we can have Victor available for that period, that will be good", Mourinho said.
