Basel vs Manchester United

Jose Mourinho

Manchester United travelled to Switzerland in the knowledge that a point would be sufficient to secure their place in the Champions League knockout phase.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has revealed Zlatan Ibrahimovic will again be on the bench for tonight's UEFA Champions League clash against FC Basel.

The Red Devils were the superior team in the first half but the visitors couldn't make the breakthrough.

Jose Mourinho claimed Mkhitaryan's omission against Newcastle was down to tactical reasons and the fact that he wanted to play Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford in the same team.

Their first chance came in the 11th minute and it should have been the opening goal, as Lukaku was played through on goal by a fine Paul Pogba pass and saw his effort saved by Tomas Vaclik.

A point in Switzerland would've guaranteed progression, but after squandering a host of good first half chances, Basel grew into the game after the break, eventually finding a 90th minute victor through Michael Lang.

"In this moment, we have Pogba, Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay".

Speaking on BT Sport after the game, former United defender Rio Ferdinand criticised the players' lack of professionalism in the second half.

United hit the woodwork twice in a dominant first half, but they were outplayed after the interval and could have few complaints about Lang's dramatic victor. The 36-year-old, who is in the final year of his contract with United, has not played a single minute in the Premier League this season. "Now, they've got to keep playing".

United would do well not to underestimate Basel, who beat Benfica 5-0 not too long ago and also won away at CSKA (even if they then lost their home leg).
