Jose Mourinho explains Victor Lindelof's absence at Manchester United

Mourinho's 'terrifying' Man Utd side are the best since Ferguson says Saha

A similar impact in the Champions League could prove vital to United's prospects in Europe's most prestigious club competition.

It's time Manchester United fans looked forward to the UEFA Champions League anthem blaring through the PA system at Old Trafford as the Red Devils will begin their European campaign against Switzerland's FC Basel.

Victor Lindelof will receive the first competitive start of his Manchester United career on Tuesday night in the Uefa Champions League group opener after manager Jose Mourinho revealed he will be paired alongside Chris Smalling against Basel.

United's strength-in-depth means that even with a few changes they should have too much quality for a Basel side who have not had the best of starts to the season.

Mourinho told a news conference: "I go match by match. If you think the players are exhausted you play with other players". David is really well and really confident and I go with David'.

De Gea, meanwhile, has said he agreed with the decision to pick Romero in the Europa League, while claiming he is a better goalkeeper because of the competition offered by Argentina's No. 1.

These are tough moments for English teams, when we have many games, and I think it is a bit hard to be ready for the Champions League.

He said videos of the collapse posted on social media showed a luffing crane, which lacks a horizontal arm and does not spin. Although Irma's eye was almost 100 miles from the Miami area, hurricane-force wind gusts battered the area on Sunday.

We felt like we had prepared for the game with all the details we needed, tactically and physically, and that if we respected the game plan we'd come out on top.

"I think Basel are a strong team, a good team", he added. "We can not think of winning the Champions League now, we have to take it one step at a time".

"Of course, I'm very, very excited for the atmosphere inside Old Trafford".

"Real Madrid past year played the last month in La Liga with a second team".

De Gea, however, says the gap between Zinedine Zidane's reigning champions is not that big. If his condition improves he will be selected because I need him.

Herrera said "it is amazing" to be back in the Champions League this season as the competition is the "most handsome competition apart from the Premier League" so therefore it is only right that "we should be in the Champions League" given how well the club has done in it before.

"But the level is more or less the same".
