Morgan Schneiderlin has claimed Manchester United will not be scared of anyone in the Champions League this season.

The Red Devils brushed aside Club Brugge in their play-off round clash, with an emphatic 7-1 aggregate win, and were rewarded with a group of PSV Eindhoven, CSKA Moscow and VfL Wolfsburg.

The Old Trafford club will be expected to qualify comfortably from Group B, but Schneiderlin believes it will not be an easy task for the club.

The France international also sounded a warning to any of the big clubs that Man United will not be scared and are willing to face anyone to win the competition.

As relayed by the Manchester Evening News, he said: "People may look at the group and think it will be easy for Manchester United because we have avoided the likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich. Of course it could have been worse, but these are three very good teams.

"Our aim is to finish top of our group and then go from there. We have big expectations for the Champions League this season.

“For us the most important thing is to play well in the group stage. If we do that and qualify for the knockout stages we’re bound to come up against those big sides. When that comes around we’ll be ready for whoever we face. We’re Manchester United and we’re not scared of anyone.”

United avoided any of the big clubs in pot one and will be hoping to top their group heading into the knock-out stages. However trips to Moscow and Wolfsburg will not be simple for the Red Devils.

If United hold any realistic ambitions of winning the competition they will have to beat the top teams such as Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

Given the quality on offer at Old Trafford, if they can get things to click in the attacking sense then that should be a realistic aim of the club.
