The pressure continues to build on Jose Mourinho as Manchester United got another disappointing result, playing out a goalless draw against Valencia in the Champions League at Old Trafford.
This has been United’s worst start to a league campaign in 29 years as they have failed to register a win in their last four matches.
The Red Devils started the match brightly, thanks mainly to the energy of recalled widemen Marcus Rashford and Alexis Sanchez.
However, as the Spanish side grew into the contest, the hosts became more ponderous and disjointed.
Valencia had the better chances either side of half-time until United rediscovered their way and energised not only themselves but also the home crowd.
Rashford clipped the top of the bar with a free-kick, but the visitors hung on for a deserved draw that extended United’s winless run to four games.
United are second in Group H on four points, two behind leaders Juventus, who defeated Swiss side Young Boys 3-0 and will travel to Old Trafford on 23 October with Cristiano Ronaldo restored to their ranks.
