"Until 2-0 we played it very stable, with confidence, with patience, with good choices and we played, I'd say, quite well". We stopped playing, we stopped thinking, we stopped playing seriously, stopped making the right decisions on the pitch. "The second level is "let's qualify, let's make the points" and if we make the knockout phase let's enjoy playing against the big guys".
"We could have put ourselves in trouble, but they didn't score and we got the third". I don't like it, flicks and tricks.
"We are ready but we have to respect every opponent and realise where we have come from", Herrera said in comments published by the British press yesterday.
"The only thing I can say is that Real Madrid previous year played the last month in La Liga with the second team", he said. We lost position, our shape, we lost balls in easy situations.
"So we need this and in the Premier League and the Champions League I have to choose the players in relation to the quality".
This weekend's game will certainly be interesting though as it will feature Romelu Lukaku coming up against his former club, while Wayne Rooney is also likely to face off against United for the first time after leaving Old Trafford.
Early signs suggest he is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines during a busy period for Jose Mourinho's men. Fellaini is nowhere near Pogba in terms of talent and playmaking ability, but he adds some much-needed strength and grit in the middle of the park.
Asked about the extent of the injury, Mourinho told MUTV: "I don't know".
