Man United stunned by late Basel strike

Three Man Utd stars miss training with injury ahead of Basel clash

Three Man Utd stars miss training with injury ahead of Basel clash

Despite winning all four of their Champions League matches to date, Man United aren't officially over the line and into the last 16.

Manchester United will again be without centre-back Phil Jones for Wednesday's Champions League group game at Basel.

Argentina global Marcos Rojo made his first appearance since recovering from a knee problem and he produced a great recovery tackle to deny Dimitri Oberlin, who only had Sergio Romero to beat.

Their first chance came in the 11th minute and it should have been the opening goal, as Lukaku was played through on goal by a fine Paul Pogba pass and saw his effort saved by Tomas Vaclik.

And Manchester United were left to rue a wasteful performance in the first half after failing to heed Basel's warning shots when Michael Lang scored a victor in the final minute of normal time.

WEATHER: Rain mixed with snow today, colder tomorrow
Today's storm system is a speedy one, with rain showers already arriving across eastern Mass. for the bulk of the morning commute. Southwest winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour during the morning will increase to between 25 to 35 miles per hour in the afternoon.

United were dominating possession without applying the finishing touch and Fellaini maintained that frustrating trend when the Belgian hit the post with a close-range header from Anthony Martial's cross.

"In this moment, we have Pogba, Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay".

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's introduction from the bench did little to inspire a United improvement and they were made to pay for their very bad second-half decline late on.

Speaking on BT Sport after the game, former United defender Rio Ferdinand criticised the players' lack of professionalism in the second half. The 36-year-old, who is in the final year of his contract with United, has not played a single minute in the Premier League this season.

Basel's dynamic front trio kept United's defence - which included Rojo for the first time since April - busy during the early stages, but the visitors quickly got to grips and began to command proceedings.
