Manchester United's Victor Lindelof (thigh) expected to miss a month

Man Utd news

But United's slow starts have continued to hamper them this season as they are well off the pace in the PL.

Having failed to win their last two games (D1 L1), the Red Devils find themselves under some pressure to bounce back strongly and the tie against Young Boys provides them the ideal opportunity to do so.

Luke Shaw has acknowledged that anyone playing for José Mourinho requires a "thick skin" but believes Manchester United's squad now need to "fight for this manager and this club".

"It's frustrating because what I want is the team to start strong, is the team to go strong on the opponent, not to be waiting, not to be reactive but proactive", Mourinho said, having also said his side are "not very good on second balls".

"It is not a crucial game, but I want to play like it is the last chance to qualify. I want to play this game as a knockout game".

"Let's forget [the last group game] against Valencia".

"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".

Traffic congestion also saw Juventus arrive just over an hour and United barely 50 minutes before their clash at Old Trafford that same month.

"Sometimes, of course, it might look like that [players don't have enough desire] but I look in the training ground and I look around the changing room and I think everyone wants the same and that's to win games and to climb up the table", said Shaw.

UEFA fined United €15,000 (£13,000) for their late arrival and the subsequent delayed kick-off of their match against Valencia in October. We train hard for the team and we're just looking forward to putting things right on Tuesday.

"What he said the other day, that was more a generational thing", said Shaw.

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. "If it is not better I walk", Mourinho added.

Recently crowned Sweden's player of the year, the improving 24-year-old has established himself as one of the first names on the team sheet.
