Gareth Southgate is able to do it but Jose Mourinho cannot for some reason. He seems to blame everyone else but himself. He bought Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku. but now the big money signings cannot get a game. It has been dull on the pitch at Old Trafford this season, but it hasn’t been dull off it.I don’t think they have sold out the stadium and that tells you what the Man United fans think about the situation. I think they need a big performance tonight.Posted at 19:3719:37Mis-firing Lukaku in beastly form – and benchedMan Utd v Young Boys (20:00 GMT)Chris BevanBBC Sport at Old TraffordBBC SportCopyright: BBC SportUnlike the T-shirt you can buy outside the ground in his honour, the only thing beastly about Lukaku this season have been his performancesImage caption: Unlike the T-shirt you can buy outside the ground in his honour, the only thing beastly about Lukaku this season have been his performancesWe are not quite at the stage where there are T-shirts outside Old Trafford saying ‘I was there when Romelu Lukaku scored’ but it has been an awfully long time since Manchester United’s £75m striker last found the net for his club, and he is among those dropped to the bench tonight.Since Lukaku’s last goal for United in their win over Watford on 15 September, he has played 923 minutes in 11 games in all competitions, and had 18 shots, with four of them on target. In eight of those games, he has not hit the target at all.His shooting accuracy during that run is 22%, the worst of his career, but he is having far fewer chances than usual too, and is averaging a shot only every 51.3 minutes. Last season at United it was every 30.8 minutes, and at the time that was the worst minutes per shot ratio of his career.Compare that to Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero, who has scored six goals in the same period, and has had 42 shots in 720 minutes – one every 17.1 minutes. Strikers need chances – especially when they are out of form.Posted at 19:3319:33Theatre of screamsMan Utd v Young Boys (20:00 GMT)Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesMnchester United are winless in their last three Champions League home games. In all European competitions, they’ve never gone four without a win at Old Trafford.Jose Mourinho’s side have also failed to score in two consecutive home games in Europe and their barren run in front of goal stands at 186 minutes.Posted at 19:3219:32Prochazka makes amendsCSKA Moscow 1-1 Viktoria PlzenRemember I was telling you about Roman Prochazka missing a late first half penalty for Viktoria Plzen…. well he’s only made amends with a stunning finish. Fourteen of Plzen’s 23 league goals this season have been scored in the last 30 minutes of games – so it could be about to get better for the visitors.Who knows the promised land of the Europa League, may yet await…..Posted at 19:3019:30Chances of progression – Man CityLyon v Man City (20:00 GMT)Manchester CitySimon Gleave, head of sports analysis at Gracenote:Manchester City need just a point from their last two group matches to be assured of a place in this season’s Champions League knockout phase.City’s chance of making the last 16 is now 99.8% according to the Euro Club Index.Pep Guardiola’s team have been favourites to win Group F throughout the group phase, even after their shock home defeat by this week’s opponents Olympique Lyon..Copyright: .Posted at 19:2819:28Post updateGary saying Young Boys fans looking like stewards, Bevo telling me Old Trafford has been invaded by minions.You’re killing me, lads.Posted at 19:2619:26Fans dressed as stewards?Man Utd v Young Boys (20:00 GMT)Gary FlintoffBBC Radio 5 live reporter at Old TraffordBBCCopyright: BBCI am taking from this
that all the Young Boys fans have decided to turn up wearing yellow waterproof jacket this evening?Surely they are not expecting rain in Manchester? Great colour
coordination though.The supporters dressed in yellow waterproofs are here to
make some noise. The Young Boys of Bern are all singing in unison in French. I
definitely caught the word “Allez” more than once.Very impressive.Posted at 19:2419:24Super SilvaLyon v Man City (20:00 GMT)Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesManchester City’s David Silva has scored in each of his last three Champions League games. The only City player to score in four consecutive games in the competition is Raheem Sterling.Posted at 19:2119:21This is what Jose saidMan Utd v Young Boys (20:00GMT)Simon StoneBBC Sport at Old TraffordThis is what Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said in his news conference on Monday.”I want to put out a team where I think they can cope well with that happiness of playing a decisive game.”In other words, a team that has the professionalism to forget they have the safety net of a trip to Valencia in a fortnight.That team, it seems, does not include Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku. Combined cost = £164m.Posted at 19:1919:19Silk CityLyon v Man City (20:00 GMT)Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesCity have been electric in front of goal in the Champions League and are the competition’s highest scorers this season, netting 12 goals in their four games.Posted at 19:1719:17Champions League glory a must?Lyon v Man City (20:00 GMT)Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesManchester City are two points clear at the top of the Premier League and have yet to lose in the top-flight, but boss Pep Guardiola is aware that many will judge him on his achievements in Europe’s biggest club competition.”For the people who don’t love us too much, who use money as an argument, then we have failed if we don’t win the Champions League,” Guardiola said.”For the others, especially our fans who say they enjoy watching our games and enjoy what we are doing, I’m pretty sure they won’t have regrets about what these guys have been doing every three days for the last 15 months.”That is the best compliment, the best success the team can have. But, of course, we want to qualify, continue our level in the Premier League and arrive in the best possible condition with everybody fit to challenge again to go quite far.”Posted at 19:1419:14Quiz timeGetty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesRiver Plate were supposed to take on old rivals Boca Juniors on Saturday in the second leg of the Copa Libertadores final – the South American version of the Champions League.But we it all kicked off for the wrong reasons.Anyway, Carlos Tevez is one of nine players to win both major tournaments, with Boca in 2003 and Manchester United in 2008 – and could become the first to win the Copa Libertadores either side of the Champions League.Can you name the other eight players to win both trophies? You have three minutes.Head here to take partPosted at 19:1219:12Advantage CSKACSKA Moscow 1-0 Viktoria PlzenIn the night’s other early kick-off over in Group G, CSKA Moscow, lead in their must-win game courtesy of on-loan Everton midfielder Nikola Vlasic’s early penalty. The visitors have had their moments though. They had five pops at the CSKA goal and have seen Roman Prochazka’s 44th minute penalty saved by home keeper Igor Akinfeev.As things stand the Russians are two points behind Real Madrid and Roma. And they face a trip to Spain in their final fixture next month. Posted at 19:1019:10What happened to Fortress Old Trafford?Man Utd v Young Boys (20:00 GMT)Chris BevanBBC Sport at Old TraffordBBC SportCopyright: BBC SportThe torrential rain has stopped but it is still a dank night in Manchester – definitely not the kind of evening you want to be walking the streets if you can avoid it.So, it’s probably for the best that Jose Mourinho did not have to walk here, although it might have given him time to ponder what is wrong with United’s form at Old Trafford this season.His side have won only three of their nine home games this season, and have failed to score in four of them, including both their previous games – mustering only 10 goals in total.What exactly has happened to Fortress Old Trafford? Well, Mourinho said this week it is not down to his players feeling the pressure – but could not really give an explanation. Whatever the reason, they need to show an improvement tonight.Posted at 19:0819:08Team newsManchester United v Young Boys (20:00 GMT)BBC SportCopyright: BBC SportJose Mourinho has made six changes to the side that drew 0-0 with Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday.Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku are dropped to the bench as Fred plays in midfield and Marcus Rashford leads the line.Luke Shaw is named at left-back while Phil Jones’ makes his first start since the League Cup defeat to Derby County.Antonio Valencia is handed the armband for his first start since United’s draw against Valencia.
