United have had a difficult start to the season under Erik ten Hag, currently languishing 13th in the Premier League table amid a plethora of off-field issues.
Discussing the perception of his side’s next opponents, Tuchel said: “There is always a lot of noise around Manchester United.
“A lot of pundits in the UK are from Manchester United. You have a legacy from Alex Ferguson which creates expectations around the club.
“All of us, me in Bayern and my colleague at Man Utd, want to achieve the same things.
“It is pretty common at Man Utd that little things become a bit bigger or the talking is a bit noisier.”
Despite the Red Devils’ woes, Tuchel has vowed not to underestimate them.
He added: “For me, it is evident to see the way I see Man Utd play.
“The results maybe don’t but it is a team full of quality and we will never underestimate them.”
Ahead of the game, the England skipper said: “Obviously, over the summer I know there were some talks between a few clubs in the background, but Bayern were a team I was really interested and excited by.
“There were not too many other discussions once they came in. It was between them and Tottenham to talk and then the deal got done.
“My focus is on here. Manchester United are a great club, a really big club as well. I just decided to come here and am really happy I have.”
