Luke Shaw says Manchester United need thick skin with Jose Mourinho

The result that followed was more damning as Manchester United limped to a draw to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford and lost more ground in the race to finish in the top four.

"You need thick skin to, of course, play under the manager, but 100 per cent this club".

Mourinho is targeting a place in the top four and a spot in the round of 16 of the Champions League before the end of December but he admits he is facing some hard decisions ahead of the meeting with the Swiss champions.

Last season Young Boys won their first Swiss league title in 32 years, breaking the eight-year monopoly of Basel, before the Bern club entered the Champions League group-stage for the first time in their history.

"At least today I have got the satisfaction of believing the team played extremely well", he said. "It was a game we need to win and my feeling is not enough from the heart, we must play with brain, we must also play with heart and I think there was not enough heart". I think that has a massive effect on the club. "I want to play like a knockout game". "If you feel pressure when people come to support you stay at [your] home and watch on TV".

"We had more men, we were more mature, we were more prepared for life, we were less protected". "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.

Asked about the team's lack of consistency, he replied: 'I don't want to answer to it, when I sometimes try to answer and explain then I'm criticised because I explain it, so I prefer not to do it'. Young Boys is not a crucial game, but I want to play like it is the last chance to qualify.

Let us know in the comments. "We all want to be the best team we can be and we all want to win trophies". I think it is only a matter of time until they go in.

The Swede limped off at the end of the 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday after playing the final few minutes hampered by a muscle injury.

Manchester United fans will be hoping Cole and many of Mourinho's former players are correct as they've continued to publicly defend him. "Our midfield is not normally that aggressive in the fight for second balls".
