Man United loses 1-0 at Basel in Champions League

Man United loses 1-0 at Basel in Champions League

Birthday boy Marouane Fellaini, 30, came closest to making the breakthrough when he hit the woodwork after an excellent cross from Anthony Martial. The story is always the thing. Mkhitaryan is not playing because we had lots of options for that match. "But you don't play for one of the biggest clubs in the world for as long as I have and win every trophy bar the Champions League without being able to do everything a top defender needs to do, be it playing or defending".

The 36-year-old travelled with the squad to Switzerland ahead of their penultimate clash in the group stages of the Champions League, but Mourinho stated that he will have to come off the bench in the St. Jakob-Park.

Mourinho brought on Nemanja Matic for Pogba to sure up his midfield before supplementing his attack with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcus Rashford but the duo couldn't find a victor.

"It's a slight problem getting them both in but you'd take the problem because you want quality players", the Chelsea legend said.

But Ferdinand, who labelled Mourinho "calculated", believes the return of Pogba has meant that Mkhitaryan's game time will now be limited.

United manager Jose Mourinho held a pre-match press conference, where he was asked about Henrikh Mkhitaryan as well, given his absence from the squad at the weekend. No Carrick, no Pogba, no Fellaini and every match was Herrera and Matic and the kid McTominay had his opportunities to play.

Paul Pogba sliced through the Basel defence and found Romelu Lukaku, whose shot on the turn was well saved by Tomas Vaclik.

And Ferdinand is in no doubt about Pogba's influence on the team with three goals and three assists in the Premier League from five games.

"Jose doesn't mess about, he makes a decision and he sticks by it".
