Fellaini starts: Predicted Manchester United XI to face Young Boys

Manchester United's awful start to the season continued with a snooze-inducing 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon and it is clear that new signings will be needed when the January transfer window opens.

A win over Young Boys and a loss for Valencia against Juventus will confirm our place in the knockout round of the competition.

United can clinch qualification to the knockout stage for the second year in a row if they beat Young Boys and Valencia fail to beat Juventus in Turin. If you feel pressure to play matches at home when the people come to support, come on. "But we need to fight for this manager, the team and the club". If they are not injured with the national teams, they come to the clubs and are injured.

Mourinho is targeting a place in the top four and a spot in the round of 16 of the Champions League before the end of December but he admits he is facing some hard decisions ahead of the meeting with the Swiss champions.

Further, Jose also hopes that the arrival of the Austrian global will boost the Mancunian giants' chances of finishing in the top 4 and effectively qualifying for next season's Champions League, which could also end up saving his job at the helm.

"Every player always wants to play in the biggest team but I don't think that Marko is thinking about that".

"If you feel pressure, stay at home - and when I say home I don't say stadium home, I say home home and watch on TV", Mourinho told a news conference.

"But I think we should also blame ourselves for the result as we started really well and did the most hard thing apart from score - which is to find the spaces to play against a team that is very closed".

"But we'll work hard again because we know, given this run, that we can't have any more slip-ups at home again like this".

Mourinho had reasoned that his defenders were better protected last season and due to his desire to play expansive football this year, his backline haven't been as shielded. "And if they aren't, we'll walk". "We gave them moments where they could breathe, could relax, they had time", said Mourinho after the game.

But Mourinho added that it would be wholly inappropriate to suggest that his charges are not enjoying games at Old Trafford. Young Boys is not a crucial game, but I want to play like it is the last chance to qualify.
