Jose Mourinho is keen to launch Manchester United's European campaign.

After only one victory in the first three Champions League games United plays in Turin against Juventus on Wednesday and urgently needs three points.

And one player definitely looked very excited to return to the Italian city. Pogba moved from United to Juventus in 2012 and had four successful seasons there before returning to Old Trafford.

Before the United Nations return match against the Italian champions, Pogba said Turin felt at home – and a quick hug with Deputy Chief Ricardo Formosino, grinning from ear to ear, undoubtedly showed that the Frenchman enjoys the prospect of the game ,

Prior to the showdown in Italy, Mourinho had one last chance on Tuesday to ensure his team was ready for the challenge as he put his players through their paces on Tuesday morning in Carrington.

However, there was no Romelu Lukaku after the striker was eliminated from the squad that defeated Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Alexis Sanchez, who had earned praise for leading the line, was involved in the meeting, as were longtime absentees Marouane Fellaini and Antonio Valencia.

United lost their last Champions League game against Juve with a 1-0 success by a Paulo Dybala goal.

Other results in Group H, however, meant that the Premier League team stayed in second place in the group. But another loss this week could cause Mourinho's side serious trouble.
