Smalling and Lindelof start for Man Utd against Basel

A club like Manchester United not being in those games, it was hard.

Lindelof has not played in the Premier League since his £31 million move from Benfica in the summer and Mourinho has suggested the Swede may be more suited to games in Europe.

"We fight for the position to play and it is good for the group, to keep working hard in training".

Basel arrive in Manchester in underwhelming form - no win in three games and a recent defeat to bottom of the table Lausanne-Sport means that last season's Swiss Super League champions may be in for a tough opening fixture.

"I feel weaker without Fellaini in my squad, it doesn't matter if it's on the pitch or if it's on the bench". And they arrived in the Champions League final with a fresh team.


With all his first-team players fit and available, Wicky is expected to start with his first-choice starting eleven on Tuesday.

JOSE MOURINHO's side are huge favourites to get their Champions League campaign off to the flawless start at home. "I will go with him again", he said.

The centre-backs will come in for the Group A clash as Eric Bailly and Phil Jones serve the final matches of their European suspensions, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo remain absent through knee injuries. In Group A, firm favourites Manchester United begin their campaign in Europe at home, when they play hosts to Swiss champions FC Basel at Old Trafford.

You can't count a team out who has Neymar - you'd rather have him than not - but I think PSG will fall short.

Mourinho told a news conference: "I go match by match".


"He is very bright and very clam and step by step he will be there". For now, the record is perfectly balanced with one win each and two draws.

David De Gea says English teams may be at a disadvantage in the UEFA Champions League due to the winter break in other countries but he is convinced Manchester United have the quality to challenge for the trophy.

"Goodness knows, we had too many free-kicks against us, but that wasn't because we're a physical team, it was because the referee misinterpreted too many things in my view".

'I don't like that clear separation of you play this competition, I play this competition.

The season before that, the famous 2-1 home win over Manchester United that denied England's biggest club a spot in the Champions League knockout stage.
