United rarely looked like changing the narrative against Valencia, either; the draw puts even greater importance on the back-to-back games against Juventus that now loom in the Champions League.

Jose Mourinho is someone who purports to be all about the small details so what sort of message did that send ahead of another game United had to win?

If they fail to win either of those, United could face a final-game trip to Valencia needing a result to qualify.

Only once in his managerial career has Mourinho made it to the fourth year in charge of a club, in his first spell at Chelsea, though he was sacked just a month into it.

And, after calling the club a mess following the defeat, former United midfielder Scholes has admitted he is surprised Mourinho is still manager at Old Trafford.

"It took one of the younger players to come out and do that [play with no fear]". He gives United more penetration than others players and a higher intensity. Mourinho has to keep him in the side.
