Jose Mourinho wants Man United to make this key signing in January

"A bad result, no chance to see it as one point we win because there are two points we lose", Mourinho said.

United can book their place in the knockout rounds with victory over the Swiss champions but the club have failed to sell out and are offering tickets on general sale.

"I would say if we have him for the Christmas period where we need, if possible, every player to be available for that hard period until the Newcastle match on January 2". It wasn't to be but we need to fight for the club and the manager starting against Young Boys.

Just as a prime minister or president facing difficulties in the domestic sphere often tends to look for diverting glory on the foreign-policy front, Mourinho is clearly hoping that Champions League success can help gloss over his team's Premier League travails.

Arnautovic played for Jose Mourinho for a short while during their time at Inter Milan together, although the United boss will no doubt recognise that the Hammers star has improved - particularly in terms of maturity - since then.

'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. I always say that this is the period of the injuries.

Smalling left frustrated by United flop

Palace have only scored one goal in their last four matches in all competitions but manager Roy Hodgson was pleased with his side's solid display at the back. "When the people come to support, come on".

He stressed that the current Manchester United side are behind in a number of areas and they will need massive improvements in order to move forward.

"So, yeah, of course, we're more focused on tomorrow". "And if they aren't, we'll walk".

"It was a really good performance and at least we got something from the game", Palace manager Roy Hodgson said. "I never feel pressure at home".

"It is nice to have a midweek game so soon after a result which was not what we wants at the weekend". I want to play like a knockout game. I want the team to start strong, I want the team to have a go immediately and it is a bit frustrating. I think it is only a matter of time until they go in.

The Portuguese coach looked to have turned things around with impressive wins over Newcastle, Everton, Bournemouth and Juventus, but the 3-1 defeat to Manchester City before the worldwide break and the latest 0-0 draw with Palace spells fresh trouble for the Reds' boss.
