Mourinho not surprised by poor Man United display

Manchester United suffered a 2-1 away loss to Valencia this evening, as the already knocked-out LaLiga side dominated the largely meaningless group stage game. With first-place Juventus losing 2-1 at Young Boys, United could have jumped above the Italian team in Group H with a win at the Mestalla but manager Jose Mourinho's decision to play a virtual reserve team backfired.

Jose Mourinho would be open to selling Eric Bailly with Arsenal interested in the Manchester United defender, according to reports.

Rashford met Ashley Young's cross with a firm header with three minutes of normal time left, but Juan Mata failed to connect with a clever Pogba chip as the chance to rescue a draw came and went.

Juventus finished top of the group on 12 points, with United on 10.

Former Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood has claimed that there is "so much divide in the Manchester United camp", with the Red Devils in disarray ahead of Sunday's trip to Liverpool in the Premier League.

Pogba had United's best opportunity to cancel out Soler's impressive opening strike following a Marouane Fellaini knockdown but somehow missed the target from close range with the goal gaping. We beat them at home and we didn't lose any match against them in four, I think, but that was the past.

A source directly familiar with the matter said this language was unusual for consular cases and showed a high level of concern. But he added that the current situation was "highly sensitive" because of a "American-Canadian conspiracy" to arrest Meng.

"We were too passive in the first half, quite comfortable with the ball but not with the intensity and ambition", Mourinho said.

"I get very frustrated watching him because I know he's better than what we see week in week out".

How Mourinho would love to own a player like Van Dijk, who is showing with each performance this season that he is the ultimate modern-day centre back and worth every penny of the 75 million pounds ($99 million) Liverpool paid for him in January.

The Daily Star says Mourinho is seething no deals are being worked on behind the scenes at Old Trafford.

"Jose Mourinho will be fully aware of Liverpool's strengths, nullifying them, sitting deep, not giving them space behind, not letting them win the ball in turnovers in unsafe areas".

"There are many tremendous teams in this competition, some real powerhouses".
