WHAT HAPPENED? The Whites went down 1-0 against Nottingham Forest in the Premier League on Sunday. This was their seventh straight league game without a win as they continue to languish near the relegation zone. They are next up against in-form Manchester United whom they will face twice within a gap of four days but Marsch is confident that the team is capable of turning things around.

WHAT THEY SAID: Speaking to reporters Marsch said: "It's my responsibility, and I understand their frustration and I accept it and I have to find a way to turn a lot of the good things that are happening into results, or we find ourselves in a stressful situation.

"I understand the doubts. Internally we have belief here. We do. The players are all in. They've giving everything they have. It's just we're young and we're still trying to put it all together. But I have to find a way right now to make sure that come Wednesday we're ready for a big result."
