Basel 1 Manchester United 0


Manchester United have confirmed their starting side and substitutes to lock horns with Swiss giants Basel at St Jakob-Park in a Champions League group stage game this evening.

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.

Herrera, though, believes United's detractors are not looking at the bigger picture, telling beIN SPORTS: "If you look at Manchester United's statistics, until three weeks ago, we had scored the same number of goals as Manchester City had and we were the second-highest goalscoring team in the league".

United hit the woodwork twice as they controlled the first half while Basel dominated after the break and missed a string of chances before Lang sent the fervent home crowd into raptures.

What should have been a chance to wrap key players in cotton wool now has something riding on it, especially as CSKA have their own qualification scrap going on after they beat Benfica.

"It was a good cross and he came round the back and I was a little too late", he stated, "We have enough confidence in the group, we will be well".

"We lost because in the first half we should be 5-0 and we couldn't score one goal after being so dominant, and so dominant in such a way that for many periods in the first half it looked impossible not to win", manager Jose Mourinho fumed afterwards.

Marcos Rojo returned from seven months out with a knee injury and was one of United's better players.

Fellaini threatened again with another header that fizzed wide from Daley Blind's free-kick.

Paul Pogba is convinced that Manchester United can win the Premier League title this season. Nemanja Matic played for about 25 minutes, as well as Marcus Rashford.

And, in the 89th minute, Basel's Raoul Petretta fizzed a low cross across the box for Lang to tap in at the far post.
