Manchester United fans optimistic ahead of Champions League opener

Manchester United fans have reacted to pictures of their team leaving for Switzerland ahead of their opening round Champions League encounter with Young Boys on Wednesday.

United head into the clash on the back of consecutive Premier League wins and Jose Mourinho’s men will be hoping for a positive start. The Red Devils face stern competition in their group with Sevilla and Juventus also in contention for a spot in the knockout stages.

United have been boosted by the return of 20-year-old Marcus Rashford who missed Saturday’s trip to Watford due to suspension after picking up a red card at Burnley in the Premier League, but fortunately for Mourinho the ruling doesn’t apply for European football.

United fans seem to be in good mood on Twitter and have encouraged their team to pick up points. United would be hoping to do better than last season when they were undone by Sevilla in the round of 16.

Here are some of the reactions by United fans on Twitter:
