They all fired blanks at Old Trafford.
Just as previous games gone by, United saw a lot of the ball in the early stages of the first half but they were unable to threaten the Valencia goal.
Manchester United have been the subject of stinging criticism of late after a awful run of results and it hasn't stopped tonight with an old rival sticking the boot into the Red Devils.
José Mourinho defended his players after their latest stuttering performance, claiming he was pleased with the effort and commitment even if there were things he would rather not say about certain aspects of the 0-0 draw with Valencia. We were the team that tried more, that had probably a couple of big chances to win, but I accept the result as a fair result. I am sat here actually surprised he survived after Saturday, the performance was that bad. "I thought that was a fantastic season and I know the reasons why".
"I think sometimes the tempo was too slow".
Mourinho has endured a hard week, failing to win at home for the fourth match in a row, losing away to West Ham and getting knocked out of the Carabao Cup at the hands of Championship side Derby County. We knew we wouldn't create 20 chances.
Against the top six sides United grabbed admirable results but they faltered against teams who were considerably weaker. We don't have the technical quality to build from the back.
Scholes was not the only one criticising Mourinho.
"Disappointing because it's two points dropped at home where we should be getting three points. We played an important game and got a point, now we have a game against Newcastle and we need to fight".
