Manchester United vs Young Boys: Confirmed training squad

Manchester United will look to get back to winning ways, when they take on Swiss champions BSC Young Boys in their penultimate Group H encounter of the 2018-19 UEFA Champions League at Old Trafford on Tuesday. "Probably you or the fans think, "Jose told them to start slow and play nice and easy or to be waiting for them to react". It is exactly the opposite. If you ask me do I prefer to play tomorrow at Young Boys here or go again to Berne I would say immediately to play at home.

Mourinho's team can book their place in the knockout rounds of the Champions League on Tuesday if they beat Young Boys at Old Trafford and Valencia fail to beat Juventus in Turin.

"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 - if we can have Victor available for that period, it will be good". I want to play like a knockout game. "Let's play this game like a game we have to win".

Mourinho's woes were further compounded when he confirmed that his much improved and increasingly influential Sweden defender Victor Lindelöf will be absent because of a muscle injury - nearly certainly his thigh - and could also be sidelined over the impending festive period.

Colin Kaepernick is still interested in a return to the National Football League , according to a source. Sanchez remained unsigned since serving as Mitchell Trubisky's backup with the Chicago Bears last season.

"I don't think it was really aimed as much at us as individuals". We played positive and that was most important'.

Mourinho has also called for an end to the sluggish starts that have characterised many of their recent matches.

Mourinho has already watched his side draw with Valencia and lose 1-0 to Juventus, so it's safe to assume he'd be disappointed if they failed to break their duck. We are staying at a hotel a few metres away. "If we can have Victor available for that period, that will be good", Mourinho said. Information is that things will be much better than last time.

And perhaps that's why Mourinho also served up a challenge to his players in his pre-match media conference, claiming any member of the squad who doesn't like the pressure of playing at Old Trafford shouldn't bother turning up. "But if it isn't better, I walk!" "If you feel pressure to play matches at home where the people come to support, come on? I never feel pressure at home".
