While Collymore does not think that the Red Devils can win Europe's premier club competition this season, he does think that they have what it takes to beat their Premier League rivals. Motivation is very high.
Manchester United and Basel met against each other twice, the first time in the 2002/03 season and the last in 2011/12. His crossing ability and forward thinking injects United with natural width on the left-flank. "We have the quality to win". The pair have established themselves at the heart of Jose Mourinho's defence but both are suspended for the Group A opener and Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof will get the chance to stake their claim for starting berths.
The 22-year-old Lindelof has struggled to make an impression since arriving at Old Trafford from Benfica in the summer but Mourinho believes the young Swede will rise to the occasion this evening.
What's more, here are the best teams on the planet: the traditional powers like Juventus and Real Madrid, the big new moneyed aspirants like Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City. "He is a very good player with very good potential", said Mourinho. "If he comes back in November, December or January - whenever it may be - then when United start the knockouts in February, providing they make it, it will be Ibrahimovic who leads the line and Lukaku will be on the bench, without a shadow of a doubt". The room at the top of European football - or more precisely, just below the is becoming more crowded and, having spent so long away from the sharp end of elite competition, United have fallen back into the pack.
"We just develop that and we played in a couple of matches, Sampdoria and I think the LA Galaxy, because it is something during the season we are maybe going to do".
■ DAVID DE GEA will play in goal for United in the Champions League.
The 28-year-old scored 20 goals in 32 games for Vitesse Arnhem last season, and won the Dutch Cup, after finally leaving Norfolk for a nominal fee following a series of loan stints at St Etienne and Real Betis.
"They're put together, PSG, to win this competition". "You know who Cristiano is". It's been almost two years. Raphael Wicky's side got into their stride thereafter, but went down to a 2-1 defeat at home against Lausanne-Sport on Saturday.
