Unai Emery and Co take on United at Old Trafford, with kick-off slated for 8pm.
And they may want to consider employing Mourinho's tactic and walking in a bid to avoid the nasty Manchester traffic.
Emery was joined by stars including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette in a drizzly Manchester earlier this afternoon.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan could also be given the nod tonight on his old stomping ground, whilst youngster Eddie Nketiah also made the trip north.

Matteo Darmian, Diogo Dalot and Marcos Rojo are tipped to join him in a back-four – with the trio combining for just 342 minutes in the Premier League this season.
