Midfield: Nemanja Matic is set to make his league debut for United following his move from Chelsea after impressing against Madrid in midweek and the Serbian should start alongside Ander Herrera in the middle of the park.
But the United boss thought that was the impossible dream - until a surprise phonecall told him that he had finally got his man.
The Portuguese tactician guided the Red Devils to their maiden UEFA Europa League crown in his first campaign, and will get his second underway with a Premier League test against West Ham United on Sunday. Yes, I thought that. I just think the competition can be better than ever'. "If that is going to mean better results and the title, I don't know".
"I am very happy to have him because he is one of those players with no question marks". United haven't lifted the Premier League trophy since 2013, which was Sir Alex Ferguson's last season in charge. He's just turned 29 and he has five years' Premier League experience.
"He's one of those players who gives me what I like in a player, which is consistency".
"I understand the reality of the market, the numbers and my club by doing 75 per cent of what I asked, the club did well".
Attack: Jesse Lingard played in the unfamiliar left wing-back role against Madrid but was hooked at half-time so I think we'll see him make way with Marcus Rashford coming in to the attack.

Manchester United begin their bid to be genuine Premier League title contenders tomorrow, when they face West Ham knowing that an improvement in home form is vital.
As stingy as United's defence was last season - Mourinho's team kept the joint most clean sheets in the league with 17 - they can at times look really shaky at the back and will need to avoid conceding late goals. We are much better organised at every level. The medical department is better and we are much stronger as a team in the analysis department.
"With these players I am looking forward to the season with optimism, with enthusiasm, I can't wait for the Champions League to start and the chance to play the top clubs".
'Of course to buy lots of good players is important and better squads are better equipped to win the title.
"We are going to try to give a hard fight to the top teams in Europe in the Champions League. I think it is the objective of every one of the top teams and every one of the top team managers", Mourinho said. It's the only thing which I demand of myself.
"I don't put any extra pressure on myself because I always give everything, then normally the results are a good effect of that work".
