Mourinho wants United to join the Fed Express

  • Rio Ferdinand Champions League 2008

Mourinho is hoping to make it three in a row when they kick off their Champions League campaign against Young Boys in Switzerland on Wednesday and revealed key alterations have been behind the turnaround in form.

Captain Antonio Valencia will not play for Manchester United due to the artificial turf at the Stade de Suisse.

But Jose Mourinho has made a decision to rest one key player amid fears over the plastic pitch that will greet his side.

The Portuguese picks David de Gea in goal, while in defence he names Diogo Dalot in defence, along with Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw.

Asked for his views on the pitch, Mourinho said: "I don't want to use that, especially before the match, as a possible excuse for a not very good performance".

"I told already Luke Shaw is playing and apart from him we have Diogo, Ashley Young and Darmian ready to play". He has a favourite surface but he has to win on the surfaces he is not in love with. We need to protect his clinical situation.

Shaw will return to the United team after missing Saturday's Premier League win against Watford due to a head injury sustained on England duty.


They beat United at home in the group stage last season, having also defeated Mourinho's Chelsea in 2013.

Marouane Fellaini. The much-maligned midfielder played the full 90 minutes in both wins and he is proving to be the most effective, and perhaps most important, player in Mourinho's armoury. In the summer of 1958, in a gesture of condolence and generosity after the Munich Air Disaster, Uefa invited Manchester United to take part in the European Cup even though they were neither reigning champions nor domestic title-winners.

Man United lost away to FC Basel - the team normally representing Switzerland at this level - last season but have never played a competitive game against Young Boys.

Manchester United attempted to get accustomed to the plastic pitch that will await them when they take on Young Boys.

"Try to be a little bit happy with the ones that are playing and not to be greedy with the ones that are not playing".

"Right now, learning the game off the left hand side is ideal with Romelu Lukaku as the focal point and just playing off him suits Rashford".
