Manchester United training at Carrington ahead of Young Boys clash

Can't I show frustration? – Mourinho defends reaction to Rashford

'What's new?' I hear you cry...

Jose Mourinho confirmed after Man United's dismal 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace that the Swede had picked up a knock during the game.

Following the draw against Palace he criticized the hunger of his players and he has stood by those comments. Are they against the way Jose wants to play?

Live stream: You can watch the match live via fuboTV. For me it was a pleasure, even against Manchester City where we didn't recover from the 2-0. Okay, you lose, but you go with that spirit until the end.

The United manager spoke of his frustrations with his team's sub-par performances before the match against Swiss side Young Boys, saying he wanted his players "not to be reactive but proactive".

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

Meanwhile Mourinho said he was prepared to walk to Old Trafford if traffic problems again hampered United's preparations before a home Champions League tie.

A win will take Jose Mourinho's team into the knockout phase of the competition with a game to spare as long as Valencia do not beat Juventus in Turin. It is not a crucial match because if we don't win we still don't depend on other results but I want to play from minute one like it's the last chance we have to qualify. I want to play like a knockout game. The way United are playing, he looks out of date'.

The Portuguese then went on to claim that Matteo Darmian, who made only his second appearance of the season this past weekend has "a little [problem]" and will not be involved on Tuesday, and ruled out Marcos Rojo out of the tie as well.

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

"Of course, we're going through a bad stage at the moment but that's why I signed my contract, because I know good things are coming our way and hopefully that's sooner rather than later".

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

But Mourinho said he would prefer it if players stayed at home if they did not feel they could cope with the pressure of facing 76,000 fans at Old Trafford. I don't feel pressure to play at home.
