Last season, Manchester United were focused on one thing.

The Swedish striker scored 28 goals across all competitions as the Red Devils finished the season with the EFL Cup and the Europa League.

His only appearance in the Mourinho era came in the Portugese's very first match in charge, a preseason friendly versus Wigan.

Concerns have been raised over the seriousness of Nathaniel Clyne's back injury after the defender was left out of Liverpool's Champions League squad. This means the aforementioned three players will need to sign new contracts if they are to remain United players after this season. For instance, the signing of Matic has allowed Pogba to roam freely. Both of the strikers are proven goal scorers, and they both have the potential to be a big influence on their chance at silverware. Mkhitaryan found himself being most helpful to the squad in the Europa League, but can he repeat his success?

Far from it, Lukaku has revealed he is looking forward to lining up alongside the Swede and has welcomed the competition his presence will bring to the front line.

For the group stages, Manchester United has a stacked roster.

The return from worldwide break this weekend commences an extremely busy month for the Red Devils.

The Reds have been placed in Group A alongside Portuguese giants Benfica, Swiss champions Basel and CSKA Moscow of Russian Federation, and although the draw could have been much tougher, Mourinho feels it will still pose many challenges for the team.

United face FC Basel at Old Trafford on Tuesday in their opening Group A fixture.

Wilson, 21, also suffered a knee injury during a loan spell at Derby last season but returned for the under-23s against Tottenham on August 25.

Lukaku will be looking to continue his form for Manchester United when the Red Devils on Stoke City next weekend following his return from worldwide duty for Belgium.
