Paul Scholes rips into 'awful' players after Young Boys win

Manchester United will look to get back to winning ways, when they take on Swiss champions BSC Young Boys in their penultimate Group H encounter of the 2018-19 UEFA Champions League at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

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. "When the people come to support, come on. I never felt pressure to play at home".

"What he said the other day, I think that was more a generation thing and I don't think it was really aimed much at us as individuals. I want the team to go immediately and it is a bit frustrating".

'I hope the manager has given them a good rollicking.

The combative Portuguese coach also confirmed that United should have no problem when it comes to getting to this home game. We are staying at a hotel a few metres away. "If it is not better I walk", Mourinho added. The Swede will undergo a scan on Tuesday and is expected to be out for around a month. "Victor has a proper injury". Bailly are the three [defenders] we have.


"I would say if we have him for the Christmas period - where we need, if possible, every player to be available for that hard period until the Newcastle match on January 2 - if we can have Victor available for that period, it will be good".

"I think it would be a lack of respect to the stadium and the fans to say we prefer playing away", Mourinho said.

The United manager accused his players of lacking "heart and desire" during the 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday and he does not want a repeat performance against the Swiss champions.

"But a team to cope with that happiness to play a decisive game". The last couple of days everyone has been very disappointed.

"You need thick skin to, of course, play under the manager, but 100 per cent this club. Everyone in the changing room is a fighter and we want the best for the team and the club". I want the team to start on the front foot, not to be waiting. United are now clear favourites to go through to the last 16 with Juventus.
