Valencia look to extend Manchester United's poor run

  • Man Utd news Jose Mourinho is under severe pressure at Old Trafford

As the visiting manager, Marcelino was asked what he thought were the best and worst aspects of Manchester United.

United fans have been encouraged by text to turn up and buy tickets on the door for the Champions League clash due to a low number of sales.

Meanwhile, Valencia head to the game following a 1-0 victory against Real Sociedad.

Perhaps more damaging still are the suggestions that United's present lethargy - statistics showed they made fewer sprints at West Ham than any other team in the Premier League last weekend - might be a deliberate attempt to undermine the manager's position. So the proof should be in the pudding.

"It's not my job to analyse that", the midfielder said diplomatically.

"Bailly is a young player who has had injuries that have made it hard for him to progress in all aspects", he said.

Jose Mourinho has warned his Manchester United squad he won't accept anything but 100% commitment as the Red Devils prepare to take on Valencia. He said that he has been preparing his side to win but is very aware that the home team are favourites, and have all the attention due to their current situation with their manager. "I see different actions but what you see is not really inside". There is pressure on us now, but to be honest there is always pressure in football.

"Every player is different, no player is the same. I don't believe any player goes onto the pitch and doesn't try".

"I don't think you can resolve something with talking", he said. "You need your leaders on the pitch, the ones who are not scared to play".

Dyche, who is today (Monday) priced at 16/1 in the market, has worked wonders at Burnley with whom he led back into Europe for the first time in five decades following a superb 7th place finish last season. 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.
