  • Mourinho: 'I want to treat this game as a knockout'

A win for Man United against the Swiss champions, coupled with Valencia failing to beat Juventus, would guarantee a place in the knockout phases for Jose Mourinho's side.

United have endured their worst start to a Premier League season in 28 years, with Mourinho's side managing only eight goals in eight domestic games at Old Trafford so far this campaign.

"I want the team to start strong to have a go immediately and it's a bit frustrating". You or the fans probably think Jose told [the players] to start slow and nice and easy, or to wait to react.

The Portuguese boss insisted: "It is exactly the opposite thing".

"If you ask me if I prefer to play at home against Young Boys or to go away to Bern, I prefer always to play at home".

"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".

"I want to play this game as a knockout game and the team we are going to pick is a team that tries to have that happiness to cope with that little pressure to the players that is not a real pressure because the reality is we have one more match to play".

Porter's cause of death is still undetermined, though it was reported that she had been suffering from pneumonia for weeks. Diddy is incredibly upset about the 47-year-old's death reports Channel24.

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.

"I think it would be a lack of respect to the stadium and fans to say we prefer to play away from home, I totally refuse to say that".

After all, United welcome Young Boys for what, in theory, should be a fairly routine victory having won only three of their nine home matches in all competitions this term. "I never feel pressure at home".

Manchester United are being linked with a move for West Ham United striker Marko Arnautovic.

UEFA fined United €15,000 (£13,000) for their late arrival and the subsequent delayed kick-off of their match against Valencia in October. Traffic problems in Manchester also delayed the team's arrival at Old Trafford ahead of the defeat to Juventus.

'They'll go to Juve, which wasn't a great performance but (they) got the result. We train hard for the team and we're just looking forward to putting things right on Tuesday. "If it is not better I walk", Mourinho added.
