Jose Mourinho - Manchester United need to handle pressure at home matches

Jose Mourinho - Manchester United need to handle pressure at home matches

This was billed as a chance for United to kick-start an improvement in performances, but the standard of their play after a bright opening 15 minutes was arguably the worst they have produced all season.

Yet, after largely dominating the match while being betrayed by a blunt edge up front, Belgian Fellaini turned to shoot home in the 91st minute, despite the ball appearing to come off his hand as he swivelled to strike it. "If it touched my hand, it was not on goal".

But the pundit singled out goalkeeper David De Gea after he pulled off a phenomenal save to keep the scores level earlier in the game. One man who, in spite the horrific man management of Jose Mourinho, has managed to excel in recent weeks.

Meanwhile, Luke Shaw assured supporters the players are committed to helping the club recover from their poor start to the season after Mourinho accused the dressing room of lacking heart and desire after Saturday's draw.

United can still top Group H if they beat Valencia in the final group game and Juventus fail to win against Young Boys.

"Do I prefer to play Young Boys here or go to Bern?"

"It was (better late than never)", Ferdinand said on BT Sport.

The Reds' feeble draw at home to Crystal Palace means they've won only three of their nine matches at Old Trafford this season, and are indeed more likely to bump into Fulham (current gap: 13 points) than leaders Manchester City (14).

Rashford's profligacy continued after the break when he sliced wide with his left foot before Fellaini hoiked another volleyed opportunity skywards.

Mourinho wasn't alone in praising De Gea for the magnificent stop.

Those travelling to Old Trafford to watch the game should allow plenty of time to contend with traffic and security checks at the stadium and we would ask commuters and motorists to plan their journeys in advance and take into account the large volume of people that will be in and around the area during this time.

"Obviously thats what we need to do".
