91st-minute Fellaini victor drags dour Manchester United into knockouts

Mourinho: 'I want to treat this game as a knockout' Manchester United's Victor Lindelof (thigh) expected to miss a month

Prior to Manchester United's group match with Young Boys, police warned the public to avoid the city centre, if possible, due to a combination of the big European game, crowded Christmas markets, and ongoing roadworks.

Jose Mourinho's men had been terrible for much of the match before a long ball was pumped up to Romelu Lukaku, who flicked the ball onto Marouane Fellaini and the United midfielder appeared to control the ball with his hand before driving the ball into the Young Boys net.

You can checkout Mourinho's celebration in the video above.

United have had problems getting to their home Champions League games on time this season and were hit with a UEFA fine after kickoff against Valencia was delayed by five minutes.

"The performance had a lot of good things and a lot of disappointing things too". Young Boys are on one. One man who, in spite the horrific man management of Jose Mourinho, has managed to excel in recent weeks.


Mourinho said defender Victor Lindelof would likely be out of action for "quite a while" with an injury. "He has a muscular problem and muscular problem takes time".

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.

He said: "We decide to change hotel. I want the team to start strong, I want the team to have a go immediately and it is a bit frustrating".

Yet, after largely dominating the match while being betrayed by a blunt edge up front, Belgian Fellaini turned to shoot home in the 91st minute, despite the ball appearing to come off his hand as he swivelled to strike it.
