Manchester United and David de Gea's camp 'confident' of agreeing new deal

Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba were both dropped to the bench for Manchester United's Champions League match against Young Boys on TuesdayMore

The belief that their team can grab a late victor has lessened, the fans have been worn down and have grown exhausted with the low-scoring, entertainment-lite football they have been watching.

An initial flurry of excitement quickly died down as again Mourinho's men laboured to break down the Swiss champions, who they beat 3-0 in Bern back in September thanks to a Pogba double. This is much more comfortable than being on the touchline like we managers are.

The Portuguese had celebrated wildly - smashing a crate of water bottles on the ground - after Fellaini's goal, scored just as the clock ticked into injury time, provided some elation on what had been a frustrating night for the home side at Old Trafford.

The result, coupled with Valencia's 1-0 defeat to Juventus, means the Red Devils join the Italians in booking a spot in the knockout phase with one group game to spare. "And frustration before that".

"We're thankful for David pulling off an unbelievable save but we dug in there, kept going and, okay, it wasn't pretty but we won the game." said United defender Phil Jones.

"I know that his agent is happy to do what the player wants and I also know that the board wants him to stay and they're working on that, so hopefully sooner or later they arrive into good conclusions".

Ex-Blues Midfielder Names Hazard as Best Player He's Ever Played With
Mourinho has said often since arriving at Old Trafford that there were decisions made before his time that he did not agree with. They have been in front at the break in just one game since September 25. "I'm disappointed with the performance".

"It means that they give everything, and they did that, with moments of very good football, moments of quality, moments of hypothetical lovely goals and then also with moments of pressure, moments of lack of confidence, that frustrate us".

It wasn't just about United's late victor.

United fans were already heading for the exits when Fellaini at last gave them something to cheer, collecting Lukaku's flick-on and firing across goal and into the bottom-left corner from 12 yards. "He's a world-class player, the best goalkeeper in the world". "It is very hard for us to score goals".

But former midfielder Ince has defended Mourinho's actions, describing it as a "manager's thing". "I won the Champions League".

Mourinho made the bold decision to leave Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku on the bench and Alexis Sanchez out of his squad as his made six changes from a drab goalless draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Nemanja Matic and Fred held the midfield with Fellaini ahead of them, the role he played for Everton.
