Moody Mourinho cranks up pressure on Man United

Mourinho: 'I want to treat this game as a knockout'

"I wasn't going to come in and change all the things Alex had done, but there were lots of things that had to be changed at the club".

However, Mourinho knocked back suggestions his players find it easier to play away and laughed off a suggestion that playing at Old Trafford brought added pressure ahead of facing the Swiss champions.

"If you feel pressure when people come to support you stay at [your] home and watch on TV".

"(Lindelof) does the scan (Tuesday) but, by the experience of the medical department and the feelings of the player, he has a muscular problem and a muscular problem takes time", added Mourinho, who said Lindelof would be out for "quite a while".

"What he said the other day, I think that was more a generation thing and I don't think it was really aimed much at us as individuals".

Subsequent Premier League results have been less impressive - a 3-1 defeat in the Manchester derby followed after the worldwide break by Saturday's uninspiring 0-0 draw at home to Crystal Palace. "I want them to start strong and have a go nearly immediately". "I want the team to start strong, I want the team to have a go immediately and it is a bit frustrating".

NASA's InSight probe lands on Mars
The 789-lb lander will officially begin its descent to Mars at 7:40 pm UTC (2:40 pm EST) on Monday and touch down by 7:54 pm UTC. Any shallower and the probe will bounce off into deep space, while the probe will incinerate if the angle is any steeper.

Speaking on BT Sport, former England striker Gary Lineker said "as a centre-forward, if I saw my manager react like that I would be absolutely livid". Bailly are the three [defenders] we have. "We all want to be the best team we can be and we all want to win trophies".

Meanwhile, Luke Shaw assured supporters the players are committed to helping the club recover from their poor start to the season after Mourinho accused the dressing room of lacking heart and desire after Saturday's draw.

Mourinho is understood to have told his squad that his words were taken out of context but several players did not see it that way, even if anger and resentment at the manager's persistent rebukes is starting to give way to apathy and indifference now.

"I think it would be a lack of respect to the stadium and fans to say we prefer to play away from home, I totally refuse to say that".

"When you see unbelievable things that the players did that demands that spirit, ambition and pride you believe they have it", Mourinho said. "If we can have Victor available for that period, that will be good", Mourinho said.
