Three matches without a win has put Jose Mourinho and Manchester United under intense pressure as they host Valencia in the UEFA Champions League tonight.
United have been rocked by lots of off-field problems this season, with Mourinho having issues with different players week in week out.
There is also much to worry about as Jesse Lingard, Ashley Young, Ander Herrera, and Marcos Rojo are all unavailable for Manchester United owing to varying injuries.
Life is not any better for Valencia who have also found life tough domestically this season.
They picked up their first win of the season at Real Sociedad on Saturday after drawing five of their first six La Liga matches.
Despite their domestic problems, United are top of Group H in the Champions League after beating Young Boys in their opening match. They will hope to keep the momentum tonight
On their part, Marcelino’s men are third in the group after losing 2-0 at home against Juventus, whether they can explore United’s recent poor form is yet to be seen.
