Jose Mourinho, manager of Manchester United, eliminated Paul Pogba at the Young Boys Champions League bench, and Alexis Sanchez did not even make the team.
Victoria over the Swiss champions would guarantee qualification in the 16th round, giving Valencia not taking all three points in their match at Juventus.
Mourinho made six changes to the team that started 0-0 against Crystal Palace, Pogba's omission in favor of Fred, the biggest change in profile.
Romelu Lukaku was also relegated to the bench with Marcus Rashford, who entered as part of a three-person attack line alongside Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard.

Maroune Fellaini makes her first start at the famous haircut with Juan Mata named on the bench. Meanwhile, Captain Antonio Valencia turns to Matteo Darmian's right, and Phil Jones replaces Victor Lindelof in the war.
Sanchez, who came for Pogba in the second half draw against the Palace, fails to team up.
Manchester United begins XI: David De Gea; Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Luke Shaw; Marouane Fellaini, Nemanja Matic, Fred; Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial. Subs: Romero, Bailly, Pereira, Mata, McTominay, Pogba, Lukaku.
