Jose Mourinho explained exactly why his pitch Manchester United was not good enough in & # 39; this season.
The Red Devils have struggled this term and are currently seventh & # 39; in the Premier League, 14 points behind leaders and rivals Manchester City.
United also targeted difference minus-one, having struggled to win and defend both times this season.
The Saturday race against Crystal Palace almost revealed two things. United were unable to threaten the visitors in & # 39; Old Trafford and were fortunate not to go back in & # 39; more than one occasion.
Mourinho believes that weakness lies between attack and defense.
Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic had the majority of United games and Mourinho has a message for them.
During the press conference on Monday, ahead of Tuesday's clash at the championships & # 39; Champions League against Young Boys, he explained: "Our midfield is not usually aggressive in the fight for the second balls."
When asked if he believed that it was easier to play & # 39; away from home after the recent run & # 39; New Formula f & # 39; at Old Trafford, he replied: "I refuse to say that because I do not want to respect the home fans.
"I prefer to play at home. If you feel pressure, continue & # 39; home … and say to the stadium home, I am home!"
United has a chance to go & # 39; over the last 16 & # 39; on Tuesday evening. If Juventus and Red Devils win both, men & # 39; Mourinho will find themselves at the stage of elimination of competition.
And turning his attention to the link of the League of the Champions League, he said: "Tomorrow is vital because even if we lose we depend on anyone but ourselves.
"But I would like one minute I play like this the last chance we nikkwalifikaw. We want to win, this is the way I want to take."
