Keeper De Gea to be starter for Man United against Basel

Rashford: It would be great if me and Lukaku performed like Cole and Yorke

No wonder United manager Jose Mourinho sounded a note of caution when Basel was drawn as a group-stage opponent in this season's Champions League.

Back-to-back victories over Chelsea in the Champions League group stage in 2013.

"I think we are due another little period, Barcelona aren't as strong as they once were, Real Madrid have had a little bit of a tough start, Bayern are in a bit of a transition phase, obviously PSG spending, but you have to put all our big clubs, City, United, Chelsea, Spurs, Liverpool in that bracket". We have to recover well from Stoke and try to win on Tuesday.

Belgium global Fellaini suffered a calf problem on worldwide duty and missed the 2-2 draw at Stoke on Saturday but returned to training on Monday.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has highlighted that Marouane Fellaini's absence during their 2-2 draw with Stoke on Saturday was the reason why they didn't come away with the win. I feel weaker without Fellaini in my squad. If his condition improves he will be selected because I need him. The Swedish centre-back is unlikely to wrest a starting spot from Bailly or Jones in the Premier League any time soon, but a positive showing can give Mourinho some food for thought.

"He had a problem in the national team and he played against Greece and after the match, he felt the problem", Mourinho said.

They will be replaced by Lindelof and Smalling, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo remain absent through knee injuries.

Wayne Rooney had never played a European club fixture before scoring a hat trick for United against Fenerbahce in the Champions League on his debut. In addition to that, the over 2.5 goals also look appealing since Manchester United are full of goals and we are getting a good price on the bet.

The Old Trafford outfit begin their campaign on Tuesday, hosting Swiss side FC Basel in the opening group stage match.

He spent £12.6 million on Dwight Yorke in 1998 despite the striker's previous European experience amounting to two goals in seven games for Aston Villa in the UEFA Cup.

United enter the Champions League this season as a result of winning the Europa League last term.

It raises the question about whether Champions League experience matters.

Basel are winless in their last 10 Champions League games (D4 L6), their longest drought in the competition.

The bookies don't think experience matters and Lukaku is among the favourites to score the most goals in this Champions League this season alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski and Neymar. Only Carlo Ancelotti (7), Rafael Benitez and Claudio Ranieri (6) have taken charge of more clubs in the competition.

"Apart from that there many teams in Champions League who are very similar to teams in the Europa League". They are playing at Old Trafford and will be extra motivated.
