Ander Herrera sends warning to Man United about Celta Vigo

Paul Pogba, Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones all trained with their Manchester United team-mates ahead of Thursday's Europa League clash against Celta Vigo. Both sides have struggled for goals of late which could make for a tight affair. "It's a hard game for us".

Manchester United are in fifth place in the Premier League table and four points behind third-placed Liverpool in the race to secure a Champions League spot.

Only Ajax, Bayern Munich and Juventus have won all three major UEFA trophies, including the now-defunct European Cup Winners' Cup, as well as the Club World Cup or the Intercontinental Cup.

"Rather than feared, I would say United are respected", Berizzo said.

Neither Smalling nor Jones have featured for United since picking up knee and toe injuries respectively on England duty in mid-March. Due to their situation in La Liga, a comfortable situation, they also managed to think just about the Europa League, to rest players, to be in the maximum condition. It is important to have everybody back.

'Too many players absent and because of that we had players who had to play 750 or 800 minutes of football and we paid a price when we played against fresh teams.

United remain without a number of first-team players, however, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcos Rojo and Timothy Fosu-Mensah joining Shaw on the sidelines.

"At this moment, the perspective is different because the Europa League becomes even more important for us".

"What happened in the first leg showed us how to play back".
