It was important because we lost at Tottenham - that didn't happen many times.

United would obviously rather their tilt at continental glory came in the Champions League than the Europa League, but this competition offers silverware and a return to the top table.
After that, United are expected to be missing Luke Shaw and will be without Marcos Rojo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ashley Young, and Timothy Fosu-Mensah.
The £35million signing from Borussia Monchengladbach has been dismissed nine times in the last three years in all but scored his side's opener in the 2-0 win over United.
