Louis van Gaal said his players will not "take it easy" against Club Brugge despite their 3-1 lead

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal said Marouane Fellaini will play in attack rather than midfield this season before Wednesday's Champions League play-off tie at Club Brugge.

Fellaini came off the bench to score a late third goal as United won the first leg 3-1 against the Belgian side.

"This year he'll be more a number nine or 10 than at six or eight," said Van Gaal of the Belgium international, 27.

Keeper David De Gea, a Real Madrid target, is not in the United squad.
