Valencia will certainly be happy with the point - a win over Young Boys on matchday three will keep them very much in the mix to progress to the next round, particularly if United fail to beat group leaders Juve.

It was a half played at a pedestrian pace for the most part as United offered few signs of a reaction to their recent poor form, and Valencia could have taken the lead in the early stages of the second half when Guedes found space on the edge of the area but could only curl his effort wide.

"I think there are things that is hard for me to say and if I say something amusing, I'm leaving myself.it would be another reason to criticise me and I think you have enough", he told a news conference. I thought it was a fantastic season.

"I'm actually sat here surprised he survived after Saturday, the performance was that bad".

Another game, another headache for Jose who is experiencing another low point in his managerial career with his Manchester United side having tasted no victory in their last three matches. To finish second, reach the FA Cup final, win the group in the Champions League.

"Frustrating, because it's not the result we want", he continued. [We knew] if we don't perform at least at an acceptable level, we would lose and defeat would leave us in a hard situation.

'They raised the level of their effort, they raised the level of their intensity in spite of not having that many players with that intensity.

Valencia were equally unconvincing going forward but Michy Batshuayi wasted a good chance midway through the second half, lashing over on the half-volley following a Francis Coquelin cross.
