Mourinho said: "We decide not to play Antonio Valencia because his knee is not a knee that needs an artificial pitch at all".

"I don't want to use that before the match as a possible excuse for a not very good performance", he added of the surface, while insisting that he has already made his feelings on it clear to UEFA.

"I'm happy but you know I was happy after the Tottenham defeat, not with the result but with many things I saw and we felt that match was okay, was the beginning of our improvement".

Having served the first of his three match domestic suspension in the win over Watford on Saturday, Rashford is expected to come back into the United line-up for the Champions League opener. Basel also dumped Alex Ferguson's United out in the group stage back in 2011-12.

"By experience, when a team reaches the quarterfinals then even the teams that are not favourites, when you arrive in the quarterfinals you smell the distance is not very far and every team starts thinking about it, but is too early now", he said.

Valencia, who is United's club captain, played 92 minutes of his side's 2-1 victory over Watford on Saturday evening but the 33-year-old is at a point in his career where he can not start every game.

His team overcame a hard, artificial turf pitch and 32,000 Young Boys fans determined to create a din on their first Champions League night since the competition was rebranded in 1992.

"I think we are improving".

Young players often have that fearless mentality when they are first thrust into the first-team and that most certainly appeared to be the case with Dalot as he made an electrifying start to the game.

The Red Devils travel to Switzerland to face Young Boys live on BT Sport 2 HD from 8pm on Wednesday and ahead of the match, Owen Hargreaves exclusively gave us his take on the situation.

"These players have the quality to play on this surface, they have speed and great technique, so it won't be a problem for the great players they have".
