Premier League side Manchester United extended their winless run to four games in all competitions after the Red Devils’ blunt attack fail to fire against Spanish side Valencia in their Champions League clash at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

Both sides played out a goalless draw with England international forward Marcus Rashford going close through a free kick which hit the top of the crossbar in the second half.

Manchester United went into the Valencia game on the back of their worst league start in 29 years and with manager Jose Mourinho under immense pressure as a result of this but the outcome of the game has failed to ease the high level of scrutiny on the Portuguese tactician.

Mourinho made four changes to his starting XI from the weekend game with recalls for the quartet of club captain Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly, Alexis Sanchez and Marcus Rashford.

The recalled attacking duo of Sanchez and Rashford inspired the Red Devils to start the game on the front foot but the team largely struggled to create scoring opportunities.

Valencia players initially found it hard to impose themselves in the early stages but later gained confidence into the game and went on to create the best chances either side of halftime which they didn’t convert.

Rashford thereafter hit a free kick onto the bar after French international Anthony Martial was fouled as both teams settled for a share of the spoils.

With the draw, Manchester United (4 points) drop to the second spot behind new leaders Juventus (6 points) who thrashed Young Boys FC of Switzerland 3-0 at home in the other Group H game.

Valencia (1 point) stay in the third spot ahead of bottom team Young Boys (0 point).

Kieran Tierney

Arsenal will reportedly make a third bid for Celtic defender Kieran Tierney in the coming days.

This is according to the publication from Daily Record which revealed that the Gunners are preparing a third bid for the Scottish international left-back.

It was revealed that Arsenal will make another £25m for the player with better payment arrangement.

Arsenal had earlier made a second bid of £25m which included £7m in add-ons.

Celtic swiftly turned down that second bid which had just £18m in upfront payment.

Arsenal will offer more in upfront payment from the £25m to meet the financial demand from Scottish Premiership giants Celtic.

The Gunners have identified Kieran Tierney as their major transfer target in their quest to sign a new left-back this summer.

They had earlier made a first bid of just £15m for the player.

Arsenal left-backs Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Mineral were unable to meet up with what was demanded by club manager Unai Emery in that position hence the need to sign a new player for that position.

Kieran Tierney, 22, has been recovering from hernia and hip problems but he’s expected to be fit by next month.

He wants the move to Arsenal but the Scottish player won’t force the transfer.
