Manchester United has enjoyed a brilliant start to life back in the UEFA Champions League. Fresh off the back of winning the Europa League last term, the Red Devils remain unbeaten upon their return to the big time.
Jose Mourinho has to be delighted with the performances that his team are putting in, winning four games from four thus far, sitting nicely at the top of the group.
On Wednesday night, the Old Trafford club can ensure they top the group with a draw out in Switzerland against FC Basel, in a game that United will be hoping to win.
Ahead of that match, the players have been put through their paces at United’s AON Training Complex, including the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcos Rojo and Paul Pogba.
After the 4-1 demolition job of Newcastle United, United’s stars have to be in buoyant mood. Mourinho will be grateful that some of his star players are returning to full fitness, right at the opportune moment as our fixture list looks a little congested from now until the new year.
This could be the perfect opportunity to hand minutes to fringe players like Luke Shaw, as well as giving chances to Marcos Rojo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who look to return to full fitness.
