Paul Scholes - Jose Mourinho 'embarrasing' for Manchester United

"The players, they tried, they raised the level of their effort, they raised the level of their intensity".

After the game, United's players were criticised for a lack of effort and attitude.

They face Valencia and Newcastle at Old Trafford before the global break, which is followed by a trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea.

However, it took far longer for the game to come alive after a drab first half that summed up both sides' struggles so far this season.

United lost 3-1 to West Ham United at the London Stadium last time out to cap off a poor week which had also seen a high-profile, apparent, falling out with Paul Pogba at the club's training ground.

Valencia were equally unconvincing going forward but Michy Batshuayi wasted a good chance midway through the second half, lashing over on the half-volley following a Francis Coquelin cross.

Martial won a free-kick from a tight angle from which Rashford clipped the top of the crossbar, before Lukaku headed over when unmarked in the box, but that was as close as the hosts came to ending their winless run.

Get ready, Manchester United fans, as club legend Paul Scholes is once again pulling out punches on José Mourinho.

United made it four games without a win in all competitions after another limp performance in their second Champions League match of the season.

A point does at least consolidate United's position three points ahead of Valencia in second place, with Swiss champions Young Boys looking like the whipping boys of the group after a second 3-0 defeat in two games, this time against Juventus earlier on Tuesday.
