CONFIRMED: Manchester United’s Starting XI for Tuesday’s Match against BSC Young Boys

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

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says he'll walk to Old Trafford tonight for their Champions League clash with Young Boys if city traffic problems persist. The team that I will play tomorrow, I want to put out a team where they can cope well with that happiness with a decisive game.

"We are staying at a hotel a few metres away".

"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". Information is things much better than last time. I want to play like a knockout game.

Romelu Lukaku, who boasts a good record against the Swiss Super League leaders from his Everton days, is once again set to spearhead the attack for Mourinho's side, ahead of Marcus Rashford and Alexis Sanchez.

"I don't think the players are going out there and not trying, but could it be fitness?" I don't feel pressure to play at home.

"What I want is a team to start strong, not waiting", Mourinho added.

But Lindelof's resurgence after a slow start to life at United has been derailed by a muscle issue, meaning Mourinho's remaining centre-back options are Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones.

"You need a thick skin to play under this manager and for this club", he said.

The United manager spoke of his frustrations with his team's sub-par performances before the match against Swiss side Young Boys, saying he wanted his players "not to be reactive but proactive".

Speaking on The Debate, former midfielder Murphy said the club would still rather be in the competition despite some poor displays, but questioned why United are lacking tempo.

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.

"It is not a crucial match because if we don't win we still don't depend on other results, so is not a crucial game but I want to play from minute one like it's the last chance we have to qualify", Mourinho said.
