"It is not a crucial match because if we don't win we still don't depend on other results, so is not a crucial game but I want to play from minute one like it's the last chance we have to qualify," Mourinho said.

"I want to play this game as a knockout game and the team we are going to pick is a team that tries to have that happiness to cope with that little pressure to the players that is not a real pressure because the reality is we have one more match to play.

"Let's forget [the last group game] against Valencia. Let's play this game like a game we have to win." earlier reported that Manchester United stars have expressed displeasure over Jose Mourinho's comments after Saturday's 0-0 draw vs Crystal Palace on Saturday at Old Trafford.
