Jose Mourinho has set a new unwanted record for the longest time without a home win in his senior coaching career. Manchester United was held to a 0-0 draw by Valencia in Tuesday's Champions League clash at Old Trafford.

The result means that Mourinho's side has now failed to win any of its last four games on home soil in all competitions.

Since its 2-1 win over Leicester City on the opening day of the Premier League season, United has lost 3-0 to Tottenham, been held 1-1 by Wolves and knocked out of the EFL Cup by Derby County on penalties following a 2-2 draw.

The last time it went four games without a home win was in 2015-16 under Louis van Gaal, when it drew 0-0 with PSV, West Ham and Chelsea and lost 2-1 to Norwich City in November and December 2015.

Mourinho last went at least three games without a home in 2013-14, when his Chelsea side lost consecutive games to Sunderland and Atletico Madrid before drawing 0-0 with Norwich.
