FC Basel vs Manchester United, Champions League

FC Basel v Manchester United

In some positions, when you don't have injuries, you have lots of options in other positions,"Mourinho said, speaking ahead of United's Champions League Group A match against Basel".

Prior to Newcastle, Jose Mourinho has revealed Eric Bailly had picked up an injury.

"I made a decision to play Rashford and Martial together, the question for many weeks why don't they play together now it's why isn't Mkhitaryan playing".

The United boss again took aim at the FA after ruling Jones out of tonight's Champions League match at Basel and this weekend's Premier League tie at home to Brighton.

His omission from the Newcastle game prompted speculation he could be set to endure another prolonged spell out of the team, the former Borussia Dortmund man having spent weeks out of Mourinho's plans in the early months of last season before forcing his way back into the team at the end of November. "Because he needs to play and because he's useful for us". Romelu Lukaku needed someone to create for him, Pogba was doing it but Mkhitaryan wasn't. However, he only played 62 minutes during the fixture.

"Ultimately it's your club form that decides whether you play at a World Cup", the 27-year-old stated.

Mourinho: Mkhitaryan did not play in previous match because we had lots of options

-The injury to Phil Jones, and the beef that's ensued between him and England Manager Gareth Southgate.

"No Carrick, Pogba, Fellaini and every match was Herrera and Matic and the kid McTominay had his opportunities to play". 10 goals scored shows that they are very good going forward, while they have only conceded once, which displays that they are not a side that is overly dependent on either facet of the game.

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.

This will also be our live thread for the match, so join us in the comments to discuss the action.

"The answer is very simple - until the worldwide board change the rules, I can only start with 11!"
