FC Basel vs Manchester United, Champions League

  • FC Basel v Manchester United

Midfielder Michael Lang tucked in an 89th victor for Basel after Raoul Petretta found him with a pinpoint low cross at the far post, giving United's stand-in keeper Sergio Romero no chance.

Manchester City opened up an eight-point lead over United while Pogba was convalescing, but both he and Ibrahimovic spoke optimistically about reeling in Pep Guardiola's side after Saturday's game.

Mourinho will be especially frustrated by the defeat because it means he can not afford to rest players against CSKA, just days before the Manchester derby.

Marcos Rojo may also be recalled after fully recovering from a knee problem of his own, while Paul Pogba could be rested as he builds towards achieving full match sharpness.

"I believe that with the minutes going probably my players felt we didn't score until now, we don't concede and we get the point and in the last minute they score".

"We were in an easy way for many periods - it looked nearly impossible not to win".

Mourinho had expressed concern about the pitch at St Jakob-Park after it was replaced following heavy damage during Switzerland's recent World Cup play-off with Northern Ireland. Paul Pogba played 66 minutes.

Richard Sherman Throws Shade At Bills Over Decision To Bench Tyrod Taylor
On the next drive Peterman threw another interception under pressure to Casey Hayward who returned the ball for seven yards. For the season, Ingram has 8.5 sacks, 35 tackles and a forced fumble to go with Sunday's fumble recovery and touchdown.

Lang hit the bar with a header after besting Daley Blind aerially before United's defence scrambled clear.

But after watching his side waste a series of chances in front of goal during the first half of Wednesday's encounter, with the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial and Mauroane Fellaini all coming close for the side, Mourinho was left to reflect on what could have been.

Martial was denied by Vaclik at the end of a surging run before Rojo rattled the bar from long-range.

"We were not informed, apart from that I don't have to speak with Southgate, I just wish [for the] good and want him to be successful".

Suddenly unable to find any rhythm, United rode their luck again as Renato Steffen's powerful effort was narrowly off-target.

Mourinho threw on Marcus Rashford and Zlatan Ibrahimovic but the attacking duo had little impact.

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.
