Manchester United could have progressed into the last 16 of the Champions League with a victory over PSV Eindhoven. Instead a listless performance from the home side saw the Dutch outfit claim their first away points in the competition after they deservedly held United to a scoreless draw.
In fact PSV finished the stronger as the game progressed and could have nicked a winner with more composed finishing. The final whistle was greeted by boos from the Old Trafford faithful and roars of approval from the PSV Eindhoven travelling support.
United boss Louis van Gaal acknowledged his team did not play to their potential but reiterated they are still in the competition but need to effectively win in Wolfsburg to continue their interest in this season's Champions League.
"It's disappointing we did not play to our full potential.
"We didn't play so well in the first half, probably just average, but in the second half despite my changes it did not improve.
"Nevertheless we gave only one chance away but it still ended zero-zero which is disappointing as we now have to win in Wolfsburg which will be a difficult game. However our performances away from home are better than last year.
