Confirmed Starting XI: David De Gea starts for Manchester United; journalists putting two and two together, again!

Manchester United face a must win clash with Spanish side Valencia in the UEFA Champions League at Old Trafford this evening. It has been a turbulent start to the season for United, who are winless in their last three matches, played after their last victory which was in the Champions League in Switzerland when United beat Young Boys 3-0. Jose Mourinho will be seeking a way to get the best from his team, something that the players have not been giving for some time now.

The lack of anything happening has seen Mourinho linked with another sacking, albeit by the media and the so-called United supporters who always seem to think they know so much more, always looking to another saviour of the club, which this time seems to be Zinedine Zidane, who is linked with a directorial role at former club Juventus at this moment in time. It does not look good for Mourinho though as players have seemingly given up, which says a lot more about the group of players than it does the manager.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Valencia, Smalling, Bailly, Shaw;

Fellaini, Matic, Pogba;

Rashford, Lukaku, Sanchez

Substitutes:

Romero; Darmian, Lindelof; Fred, Mata, McTominay; Martial

United have a history against Valencia. Eight competitive matches have been played in the history of both clubs, all in UEFA competitions. United have won twice, drawn five times, losing one fixture. It has been about ten years since the last fixture against the Spanish side, who like United, have not had a very positive start to the new season. Both teams will be seeking to find something in this match – United continuing their unbeaten start in the Champions League, Valencia searching for their first win in the competition.
