United drew the game 0-0 with Palace and Nicol says that shows the players are not listening to their manager.

"If you feel pressure stay at home and when I say "home" I don't say stadium home, I say stay home and watch on TV", he said.
"When the people come to support, come on".

[Victor will have a] scan tomorrow, but by the experience of the medical department and the feelings of the player, he has a muscular problem and a muscular problem takes time, revealed Mourinho at his pre-match press conference. "I want them to start strong and have a go nearly immediately".

"I don't want the team to be waiting, not to be reactive but proactive".

The combative Portuguese coach also confirmed that United should have no problem when it comes to getting to this home game.

"What he (Mourinho) said the other day, that was more a generational thing, I don't think it was really aimed as much at us as individuals", Shaw said. "The information I have from the club and club contacts with the police is that things are going to be much better than the last time, but if it isn't better I walk".

Jose Mourinho isn't feeling the heat quite as much as he was in early October, but things are still far from flawless at Manchester United.

Frustrating would also aptly describe Victor Lindelof's injury setback. Bailly are the three [defenders] we have.

"I would say if we have him for the Christmas period where we need, if possible, every player to be available for that hard period until the Newcastle match on January 2". "Normally we are not very good at second balls", said United's manager pointedly and presumably laying down a gauntlet.

Mourinho expects a response from his side in Tuesday's Group H encounter, having questioned some of his players' "heart", desire and intensity after the 0-0 draw with Palace.

Speaking on BT Sport, former England striker Gary Lineker said "as a centre-forward, if I saw my manager react like that I would be absolutely livid". "You need that aggression and intensity in the midfield, which, to be honest, we don't have".

"I keep saying it, but we need to fight for the team, for the manager and for the fans and the club".

"Everyone in the dressing room is a fighter. I want to play this game as a knockout game". United are now clear favourites to go through to the last 16 with Juventus.
