Champions League: Mourinho wants no excuses on plastic pitch against Young Boys

Mourinho wants United to join the Fed Express Dalot in line for United debut vs. Young Boys

The 20-year-old's career has been at the centre of a debate amongst pundits and critics.

Here are three players who Mourinho has to start on Wednesday night.

"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.

"We have to do it, but Antonio is the only one we need to protect with his clinical situation, apart from that we give everything and try to win".

It has been a troubled start to the season, but United come into this game on the back of successive Premier League wins over Burnley and Watford.

United players kicked and jumped on the pitch before training on the eve of the game, with coach Michael Carrick instructing them to "get a feel for the pitch" with balls once the warm-up was completed.

"When he plays great, he will play".

Celebrity psychic Sally Morgan has predicted a royal baby announcement from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex before the year is out. If you've ever wondered how Meghan Markle reacted when she first saw her - frankly stunning - wedding dress, then wonder no more.

But Hargreaves does not think Mourinho, or the Manchester United hierarchy, would entertain that option given his importance to the team already.

"So I think he's in the flawless spot and he's getting enough games to continue his development". I'm going to be the main man.

Dalot has played twice for the under-23s since recovering from knee surgery and completed 90 minutes for Ricky Sbragia's side in the 1-1 draw with Reading at Old Trafford on Friday. But I just want to remind you, in advance, that we can only start with XI, so when tomorrow you see the team you could try to speak about the ones that are going to play and not the ones that are not going to play.

The two-time Champions League victor believes football has evolved beyond the days of players being pigeon-holed in one position and Rashford's versatility is an added string to his bow.

"I don't think it's too far Mourinho's fault and too far Rashford's fault".

Lukaku is blocking Rashford from playing in his preferred central position but the Belgian has scored four goals in five appearances for the Red Devils this term and there's an appreciation from Rashford that he's not yet ready to be the club's main striker.

"Everybody knows it's different but what I had to say I told last week in Geneva in the UEFA meeting that we had and what can I say?"
