Champions League: Man Utd train ahead of Valencia clash

"We need to play the flawless match to win".

Ahead of tonight's Champions League clash, the VCF coach said: "Bailly is a young player who has had injuries that have made it hard for him to progress in all aspects".

"I am sure they would start tomorrow by trying to beat us, so we have to be concentrated, focused".

When you look at the way Mourinho has gone about his work in the last five years at Real Madrid and then in his second spell at Chelsea, it has always finished up like this sooner rather than later.

"Ask the guy behind you, he was the one who wrote it", Mourinho responded, referring to Sun journalist Neil Custis.

Nemanja Matic, one of Mourinho's most trusted players, said: "I don't think with talking you can resolve something".

Hernandez, who is a key player for Leeds and has been playing well for Marcelo Bielsa's side this season, believes that Valencia will win against United away from home at Old Trafford on Tuesday evening.

Valencia forward Rodrigo says the Spanish side are targeting three Champions League points from their trip to Manchester United.

It will be the first time United have played at Old Trafford in the Champions League since their shock defeat to Sevilla last season, and the manager will be hoping for a better performance this time out. Talk in the dressing room doesn't mean anything.

Pushed further on the squad's attitude, Mourinho added: "I think that some care more than others", while refusing to name names. It was another lackluster showing from Jose Mourinho's squad, and certainly one that will turn up the pressure, but not almost as much as it would have been had the team lost. "When you don't win two games in a row, there is more attention on you - we know that". There's a review of the ongoing Mourinho v Pogba saga, and a look ahead to games against Valencia and Newcastle.
