Manchester United U19 coach Nicky Butt knows their UEFA Youth League hopes hang by a thread.

Butt has challenged his side to win all three remaining fixtures after a 1-0 loss to Real Sociedad hit United's qualification hopes.

"I've just said to the players that, if we're going to qualify, we have to win all three games in my opinion," Butt told MUTV.

"We're capable of that and I know that but I can't keep saying we're capable of this and capable of that. We've got to go out on the pitch and prove it by showing what we're made of. It's in there - it's just getting it out of them.

"It was disappointing we didn't perform the way we wanted to. We're much better than that and I've told them in the dressing room, even though they know that themselves."
