Jose Mourinho explains why English teams falter in the Champions League

MANCHESTER ENGLAND – AUGUST 13

In reality, though, United — the current leader of the Premier League — should have little to worry about when it opens group play against the Swiss champion at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Speaking at the Aon Training Complex to preview Tuesday's UEFA Champions League match at Old Trafford, Mourinho told reporters: "Fellaini didn't train yesterday so let's see if he can today".

United competed in the Champions League for 18 consecutive seasons before only qualifying for it in one of the last three and Mourinho admitted this will be a new experience for some of his charges.

They first met during the experimental second group stage during the 2002-03 campaign, where United won 3-1 in Switzerland before the second game at Old Trafford was drawn 1-1 in a game which included a rare Gary Neville goal.

After all, Los Blancos have won the competition two years in a row and their squad is formidable.

The Red Devils spent £75 million on the Belgium global over the summer having found themselves short of a leading frontman. An intriguing tie, thus, seems to be setting up as Manchester United eye a winning return to the Champions League.

Jose Mourinho has declared that Victor Lindelof can make his first-choice centre-backs Eric Bailly and Phil Jones afraid as he prepares to try and kick-start his Manchester United career.

FC Basel do not have any suspensions, and do seem to have a clean bill of health ahead of the game.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has described his excitement to be playing in the "best cup competition in the world" once more as the Champions League makes its return to the club's schedule this week for the first time since 2015.

So the objective was to win that to obviously go back into the Champions League.

And, there are five English teams! "He's a guy I can learn a lot from".

The Portuguese is hopeful of bringing success to United in the club's "natural habitat", but believes they and other Premier League sides face more obstacles than their continental counterparts. Elimination of Tottenham in the Europa League quarterfinals a season earlier.

Taulant Xhaka, brother of Granit who plays for Arsenal, has adequate experience in Europe, with Switzerland's biggest club having played in the competition previous year - with one assist to his name in 6 starts.

The United boss said it was impossible for English teams to do likewise because usually competition in the domestic game remained fierce until the end of the season.

There will not be a repeat of 2011.
