United may have been European champions three times, but they come into this season's continental campaign determined to make amends for a feeble exit from last season's Champions League, when they were beaten by Sevilla in the last 16.
"Valencia's situation, we need to protect his clinical situation, apart from that we go with everything we have and have to try and win".
They'll face Young Boys for the first time in any competition but United know they face a tricky test in Switzerland on the artificial pitch at the Stade de Suisse this evening so they'll won't be taking anything for granted.
Mourinho said: "Yes I lost in Switzerland both matches but I won the group phase - a defeat tomorrow and I win the group, I sign immediately".
"It is premature to be speaking about our chances when we didn't even play the first match", Mourinho told a news conference on Tuesday.
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".
Full back Antonio Valencia, who is suffering from a persistent knee complaint, has been left in Manchester, with Luke Shaw set to start in his place.Читайте также: Hope Fades For Dozens Trapped In Landslides Philippines
"These players have the quality to play on this surface, they have speed and great technique, so it won't be a problem for the great players they have".
"At this moment I feel Marcus Rashford will say probably not".
Marcus Rashford's future has been a hot topic over the last few days, with Jose Mourinho defending his handling of the youngsters' development.
"So, we brought Luke Shaw back to the squad and to the team".
"I don't think it's too far Mourinho's fault and too far Rashford's fault".
"So, we have (Romelu) Lukaku, Rashford, (Juan) Mata, Alexis (Sanchez), (Anthony) Martial and they can not play all together".
The 20-year-old managed just one Manchester United start, playing a total of 122 Premier League minutes, before being England's match-winner twice during the global break.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
