Manchester United know victory over winless Young Boys with Valencia failing to see off Juventus will send them through to the Champions League knockout stages.

Shaw says that "everyone there in the changing room is a fighter", meaning United are ready to right some wrongs by beating Young Boys in Tuesday's Group H encounter.

Such setbacks have not only left them a modest seventh in the Premier League but, in recent days, prompted Burnley's Sean Dyche to suggest Mourinho's players are not immune from relegation worries while David Moyes on Monday claimed he should have been given more time in charge at Old Trafford after succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson.

"I believe that bit of stability we've not had over the years - we need to stick with him". It wasn't to be but we need to fight for the club and the manager starting against Young Boys. "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".

Bears say quarterback Trubisky has right shoulder injury
So, there's the formula for beating the Vikings on the road - protect the ball, take it away, and convert turnovers into points. And even if he does play against the Vikings , it remains to be seen just how effective he will be with his thumb injury.

But according to Ogden, after Lukaku was ruled not fit enough to play, Mourinho remained behind to keep a close eye on Witsel, a player he wanted more than Fred in the summer. I totally refuse to say that. "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".

"If you feel pressure stay at home but when I say home I don't say stadium home, I say home home, and watch on tv". For me it was a pleasure, even against Manchester City where we didn't recover from the 2-0.

"We played a game like it was one more game and I don't think it was one more game". "The information I have from the club and club contacts with the police is that things are going to be much better than the last time, but if it isn't better I walk". "We will still just depend on ourselves", Mourinho said.

"I prefer always to play at home. Let's play this game like a game we have to win".

Clearly having a strong understanding of the Australian setup, Jones is adamant that Cheika is the right man for the job. There's no way around it", Hooper said.

"There is a conflict there, in that United as a club want to move towards signing these younger players". I want the team to start on the front foot, not to be waiting. You probably thought Jose told them to start slow. "I want them to start strong and have a go nearly immediately".

The result that followed was more damning as Manchester United limped to a draw to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford and lost more ground in the race to finish in the top four.

"If we can have Victor available for that period, it will be good".

It is likely that Phil Jones will step in to replace Victor Lindelof in the Swede's absence, meaning that the iconic duo of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones will be reunited on the pitch again.
