United were defeated by France's Paris Saint Germain in their last home game and the loss ended their two-match unbeaten run in this competition as the hosts.
"Of course you wait to see when you see them this morning when you come back in," United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said following their defeat to Young Boys. 
"The attitude is like you expect it to be. They’re focused, of course a little bit disappointed but not too downbeat. We know it’s a setback and we have to do better.
"And we’ve got five games [in the Champions League] to get 10/12 points we need. Not the start we wanted but we’re a good team that can bounce back again."
