Jose Mourinho - Manchester United need to handle pressure at home matches

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho wants his side to take the game to Young Boys straight from kick-off when they face the Swiss club in a Champions League tie at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Got that? Good. Off you go.

Mourinho has often appeared downbeat throughout the campaign, as well as frustrated at a perceived lack of transfer activity, and he was unimpressed with the way his side approached the Palace game.

But despite their strong start in Europe this season, United plan to make a big change ahead of their fifth game in the competition.

The theory is to create chaos and uncertainty which drives all the players on to nail down their place but in reality, it reveals that Mourinho is a manager almost two and a half seasons into a job with no clear idea of his best team or a core identity.

Further, Jose also hopes that the arrival of the Austrian worldwide will boost the Mancunian giants' chances of finishing in the top 4 and effectively qualifying for next season's Champions League, which could also end up saving his job at the helm. "Palace deserve some credit but we have to blame ourselves".

"There are games that are special games and not just one more - and this was a special game".

"But then they've got two centre-backs who are development centre-back at the moment, (Victor) Lindelof and (Eric) Bailly, and we've seen the problems they've had developing because of the expectation placed upon them".

"I think Jose gave the right message before the game saying they will end up in the top four".

"My feeling is that there was not enough from the heart", Mourinho added. '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.

"I think we knew the sort of the period we had all the way to Christmas, there were so many home games that three points had to be a must", United defender Smalling said. "I want them to start strong and have a go nearly immediately".
