Manchester United have been under much scrutiny in recent years after a sudden drop in form following the retirement of long-term manager and trophy-laden legend Sir Alex Ferguson.

Jose Mourinho was expected to steady the ship after a treacherous time under David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal, but the Portuguese only managed limited success during his first two seasons and is now suffering from his well-renowned 'third-season-blues'.

Paul Pogba has not started the last three games and appears to have some friction with Mourinho causing a domino effect throughout the rest of the team.

Liverpool's 3-1 demolition of the Red Devils was a worrying indication of how far behind United are in terms of quality on the pitch and therefore recruitment quality off of it.

Jurgen Klopp's men managed 36 shots to Mourinho's 6 in an array of statistics which could only be compared to a mismatch on FIFA.

United did however manage to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League after finishing runners-up to Juventus in Group H.

The draw for the last 16 is now over and Man United have a tie against seven-time French champions Paris Saint Germain.

The thought of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani going up against Man United's defence as clearly proven to be a bitter pill to swallow, as fans have run to social media to vent.

The general consensus is that Mourinho's men have no chance whatsoever, as Twitter displayed in a nutshell the lack of belief fans currently have in their side.

It's hardly surprising that fans feel this way, with United currently 19 points off the top of the Premier League table after just 17 games, accumulating just 26 points - their lowest points tally at this stage in the Premier League era.

Reds supporters will have to wait until February to realise their Europen fate, but do have a promising run of league fixtures that could soften the blow.

A trip to Cardiff awaits next weekend followed by two home fixtures against Huddersfield and Bournemouth to complete the crammed festive period.

This is merely clutching at straws though, as it cannot be denied that it's not a good time to be a United fan at the moment.
