Ander Herrera opens up about new Man United signing: He's so hungry

"It is easier for Lindelof to play Champions League".

Phil Jones and Eric Bailly will not play, giving way for the Swede and Chris Smalling.

Mourinho said he had "no complaints" about how English football was set up and that he had the option to rest players.

Lindelof, who will partner Chris Smalling, endured a hard pre-season and has only made one competitive appearance for United, when he struggled in the Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid. The Swiss side aren't one of the European powerhouses at the best of times and they've started their domestic season sluggishly, their latest defeat a 2-1 home reverse to Lausanne at the weekend to leave them third in their league.

Like Zlatan, I think he was brought in to win the Champions League. last season it was the Europa League, and now comes the step up.

Although Young is primarily a winger, he has been deployed at full-back in recent years, which has shown his value as an important squad member under Jose Mourinho.

It's a very different task to playing in the Premier League where he is undoubtedly one of the best strikers of the past five years.

Only Liverpool (5) have won more European Cup/Champions League titles than Manchester Utd (3) among English clubs.

Mourinho guided United to European success last season by lifting the Europa League, but only did so after playing a second-string side in numerous club's final Premier League fixtures and seeing their league position suffer. "There is a reason for Eric and Jones to be anxious because Victor is very good".

"He's (Jones) playing well for us", Mourinho said.

Mourinho often gives the impression of a protective father when discussing the qualities of Marouane Fellaini in front of the media.

"I hope Old Trafford will welcome him as he deserves".

Van Wolfswinkel has since continued that prolific form with seven goals in seven games for his latest club and is the main goalscoring threat for Basel head coach Raphael Wicky's plans to cause an upset against the early Premier League leaders.

"Along with Real Madrid they are favourites to win the Champions League", Allegri told the BBC. Man United is unlikely to have much trouble getting through in a group that features Benfica, FC Basel and CSKA Moscow.

Manchester United are back in the Champions League this week and in their first game they take on Basel at home.
