Manchester United's Ander Herrera patient despite lack of game time

The game at Old Trafford is United's first appearance in the Champions League since the 2015/16 season when they were eliminated at the Group Stage under former manager Louis Van Gaal, according to the Independent. Now I feel really strong, really confident.

Ander Herrera has a stark warning for his Manchester United team-mates, insisting it would be a mistake to underestimate their Champions League opponents.

Manchester United are back in their "natural habitat" in the Champions League and are up for the challenge of playing against the best teams in Europe, manager Jose Mourinho said.

We felt like we had prepared for the game with all the details we needed, tactically and physically, and that if we respected the game plan we'd come out on top.

You can't count a team out who has Neymar - you'd rather have him than not - but I think PSG will fall short.

- David de Gea will be United's goalkeeper on their first outing in the Champions League this season.

"I think Basel are a strong team, a good team", he added. "Everyone trains hard to be in the XI and that's it".

"And that's why I prefer a Europa League victory than a third or fourth spot in the championship".

"There is no need for him to adapt to Champions league but he needs a bit of time to adapt to the Premier league especially the new Premier League", he said.

Basel were forced to defend for much of the game, but United could not break through their defence, and Alexander Frei then headed in to double Basel's advantage in the 84th minute.

"Of course, I'm very, very excited for the atmosphere inside Old Trafford". We consider that we can win every match and that's what we're going to try. "Of course, we are really motivated to play in the Champions League and to try to win every game, even though we know it will be hard".

Teams from the Premier League have only progressed beyond the last 16 on four occasions since Chelsea won the tournament in 2012.

"But the level is more or less the same". But Manchester United is one of the best teams in the world.

A lot of people seem to be buying into this, jumping on the bandwagon and labeling Philadelphia as a sleeper team to watch. Tune in on sunday afternoon to see just how much of a whuppin' Lane and the boys put on the Redskins.
