Valencia look to extend Manchester United's poor run

Valencia forward Rodrigo says the Spanish side are targeting three Champions League points from their trip to Manchester United.
But the Spain international says Valencia are wary of a United side who have endured a difficult start to the season.
United have only won one of their four matches in all competitions at Old Trafford this season - and the last time the ground hosted a Champions League game, Jose Mourinho's side were knocked out by Sevilla at the last-16 stage.
United are now on a three-match winless run and Rodrigo said: "It's a team that's not used to going through situations like this, but also the way they're made up, they've got some great players, first-class players.
"They're not used to going through a difficult situation, but I think that's part of the career of a footballer.
"Sometimes you go through bad times and good times.
"I think everyone in football is here to win and I am sure they will want to turn the situation as soon as they can.
"I am sure they would start tomorrow by trying to beat us, so we have to be concentrated, focused.
"We've come from a good result at the weekend and we're coming here to get the victory."
Marcelino echoed Rodrigo's sentiments ahead of a Group H match that was presented to the Valencia head coach as a great time to win at Old Trafford.
"We'll win if we play well," he said.
"Whether it's the best or the worst moment to play them, who knows?
"A big club like this, a team like this, with a manager who is probably one of the most experienced in the world and some extraordinary footballers, with huge investment.
"One of the most important teams in the world in the best club competition in the world, can we expect that they don't put in their maximum?
"There's no way that the previous game you've played can have anything to do with this game coming up."
