Lukaku has proven he can cut it at the very top of the Premier League

Lukaku has proven he can cut it at the very top of the Premier League

Phil Jones and Eric Bailly are both suspended so Chris Smalling gets a recall in defence while Victor Lindelof is set to make his full competitive debut following his summer move from Benfica.

JOSE MOURINHO admits Manchester United have fallen behind the big boys in the Champions League.

Real Madrid and Juventus, who contested last season's Champions League final, were also able to keep players fresh for Europe but still won their domestic leagues, while United finished sixth.

However, Mourinho said today: "There is no need for him to adapt to Champions league but he needs a bit of time to adapt to the Premier league especially the new Premier League". We've worked very hard all of past year in the league and then went through a really tough qualification phase and this is the competition that we wanted to be in.

David de Gea will retain his place in goal over Sergio Romero, who was United's starting goalkeeper during their successful Europa League campaign last season.

Speaking in Monday's press conference ahead of Manchester United's first game against Basel at Old Trafford on Tuesday, Mourinho says he is looking forward to the clash after a long while.

Betfair are pricing Lukaku at odds of around 4/7 to score any time in Manchester United's clash against Basel in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The Swiss side head to Old Trafford to kick off our return to Champions League action on Tuesday and, as part of his analysis of the Reds' Group A rivals during an interview with MUTV, Herrera is paying them maximum respect. However, there was little time for preparation, and therefore for the upcoming fight Mourinho will certainly add to the team.

In the other Group A fixture tomorrow morning, Portuguese club Benfica host Russian outfit CSKA Moscow.

In a total of four meetings against the Red Devils, FC Basel have lost only once, scoring seven goals in the process.

'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.

"We know what it was like past year so we know what to change and keep the same".

It is well known, but worth pointing out that neither Manchester United or Chelsea played Champions League football last season.

Basel have a decent record at Old Trafford in the Champions League. "If we think they are exhausted, we played with other players". Mourinho said: "He's a very important player for me".
