Manchester United have been given a "poisoned gift" of a fixture schedule when the Europa League resumes, yet Jose Mourinho will not allow any let-up when Fenerbahce arrive in between clashes with Liverpool and Chelsea.
A fortnight on from losing their Group A opener at Feyenoord, the United manager highlighted the importance of securing victory against relatively unknown Zorya Luhansk at Old Trafford.
The Ukrainians made life tough but Zlatan Ibrahimovic's close-range header secured a 1-0 win, kick-starting a campaign that continues in October at home to Fenerbahce.
The Turkish giants arrive three days after United travel to rivals Liverpool for a fascinating Monday night Premier League clash, with the Europa League clash bookended by Mourinho's first return to Chelsea on the Sunday.
The United manager said:
Well, we could play Liverpool on the Saturday, we could play Liverpool on the Sunday. We play Liverpool on the Monday. So maybe we don't have the best conditions, especially because we play against two top Premier League games that don't play in European competitions.
We had this kind of poisoned gift of playing on the Monday. That creates a very difficult situation, but we want to try and qualify for the next round. We want to try.
(There is a) long time to go, almost a month, but we want to try, so we will play against Fenerbahce with a team with possibilities to beat Fenerbahce.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho insists Wayne Rooney remains a big part of his plans and praised the way his side dominated Leicester in their 4-1 win at Old Trafford.
Goals from Chris Smalling, Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba's first for the club gave the hosts a 4-0 half-time lead before Demarai Gray scored spectacular consolation for the reigning Premier League champions.
Speaking about Rooney, who was dropped to the bench, Mourinho told Sky Sports: "He's a big player for me, a big player for United, a big player for this country.
"He's my man, I trust him completely. He's as happy as I am at this moment and that's the team.
"It was a very good performance. It's obviously a very good result, it's not easy to win against them and even more difficult to win in such a comfortable way."
