Mourinho: Micki didn't play because we had many options

Ibrahimovic makes Champions League history in Man Utd's Basel loss

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.

'I think at United right now we have a fantastic squad, ' the Spaniard added. Jesse Lingard plays, as does Anthony Martial.

The busy winter fixture list will see United play nine games in December alone and Mata has revealed that Ibrahimovic, Pogba and Marcos Rojo, who has also returned after seven months out with a knee injury, have given the whole squad a lift. "Because he needs to play and because he's useful for us".

"I can assure the fans that we are going to give our all, so that the jersey and emblem that we defend, competes in Europe and in the Champions League for as long as possible".

The Red Devils signed three players in the summer transfer window following Benfica defender Victor Lindelof, Everton striker Romelu Lukaku and Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic.

Lewis, Urlacher, Moss, Seymour Among Hall of Fame Semifinalists
He also started all seven postseason games he played in, registering 7.0 sacks, three forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. Five former Denver Broncos players are among the semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2018.

Bailly's endured a stop-start opening to United's campaign and he will miss tomorrow's trip to Basel in the Champions League.

The Portuguese boss also joked he hopes Gareth Southgate won't recall the United defender for future internationals after he was surprisingly omitted for the recent friendlies against German and Brazil.

According to the manager, Mkhitaryan didn't play against Newcastle because they had lots of options for that match and he chose to play Rashford and Martial together. The fact that there is always a question about some player who is not playing or in the best of his form, no questions about Martial, no questions about Chris Smalling, it's always about players in a certain moment, a certain match, a certain period, who didn't play or was not my option.

"Many of them deserve to play and in big matches, not just in the matches people consider easier ones. The answer is very simple, until the worldwide board change the rules I can only play 11".
