Manchester United should have been at least 3-0 up at half-time against FC Basel but somehow managed to lose 1-0. We hit the woodwork twice, had an attempt cleared off the goal-line and Romelu Lukaku fluffed a chance when one on one with the goalkeeper.

A draw this evening would have meant we were through to the next round and could rest players for the final game against CSKA Moscow. Bear in mind, that game comes five days before we face Manchester City.

However, Jose Mourinho may still opt to rotate, as CSKA Moscow have to beat us 6-0 at Old Trafford to stop us from finishing top of the group.
