Manchester United v Young Boys

Mourinho: Face the pressure or stay at home

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has dropped Paul Pogba to the bench for the Champions League clash with Young Boys, with Alexis Sanchez not even making the squad.

But, not for the first time this season, Mourinho's men dug deep and scored a late victor, with Marouane Fellaini turning home to secure a 1-0 victory and progress to the Champions League round of 16 with a match to spare.

Jose Mourinho said he was confident De Gea would stay and commit his future after hailing the Spaniard as the "best goalkeeper in the world" following his stunning save against Young Boys shortly before Fellaini's victor.

The United manager's frustration had been growing throughout the match and his angry celebration said it all as he kicked one water bottle carrier and threw another into the floor. It was nearly like he was angry about winning.

"I kind of enjoyed it", he said, ahead of United's Champions League clash with Young Boys on Tuesday.

"That's exactly what I want and probably you or the fans, they think "oh, Jose told them to start slow", "Jose told them to play nice and easy and wait to see what happens" or "to be losing for then to react".

Asked why he had acted the way he did when his side had just clinched victory against Young Boys - and qualified for the round of 16 - Mourinho said: "Relief".

"Without David's save, no winning goal either", he said (via the Guardian).

Asked if his squad are playing as well as the teams in front of them, Emery said: "Sometimes yes, sometimes no". And that appears to be what Emery has managed already.


Recently crowned Sweden's player of the year, the improving 24-year-old has established himself as one of the first names on the team sheet.

De Gea, who will be out of contract in 2020, is in talks over a new deal amid interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus and Mourinho has told Ed Woodward and the board to get the deal done.

Last week Mourinho complained about the "mentality" and "lack of aggression" in the modern player, name-checking Shaw and some of his teammates, but the the 23-year-old was not fazed by his comments.

De Gea (below) has won only four major trophies since signing from Atletico Madrid for £18.9m in 2011, joining a club that had reached the Champions League final three times in four years.

"I thought they were very bad tonight", Scholes said of the Red Devils on BT Sport .

Firstly, using Fellaini as an attacking midfielder allows him to function as an offensive pivot, meaning that United can deploy a fluid front line with Marcus Rashford up front and yet retain the use of a target man for others to play off.

"In the end we scored".
