The Germany international won the competition with Bayern Munich in 2013 and believes there are similar characteristics in United's players as there were in the squad of his former club.
"Yes. I think so," Schweinsteiger said. "The best strength here is the team spirit. But of course first of all we have to do our work.
"We lost the first match against PSV Eindhoven which was a pity. As the manager said we have to win our games at home."
Daunting Old Trafford
United will look to register their first win in Champions League Group B against Wolfsburg on Wednesday having lost their opening match away to PSV Eindhoven.
Schweinsteiger, who joined United from Bayern in July, believes the Bundesliga side will find Old Trafford a difficult place to get a positive result. "It's not easy to play here for the first time, especially in the Champions League," Schweinsteiger said.
"The supporters you can feel the power of them and it's good for us but we have to play well and that's the most important thing.
"When I came here the first time with Bayern Munich. We had it not so easy in the first 10 minutes so it was not easy but we changed the score at the end and got in the next round.
"It's a big stadium and a big honour to play here for United in that stadium especially in the Champions League."
The 31-year-old World Cup winner also revealed he has quickly adjusted to life at United and English football despite the differences with German football.
