Jose Mourinho has made seven changes to the side that beat Newcastle United last weekend as Manchester United prepare to face FC Basel at St. Jakob-Park.

Marcos Rojo makes his long-awaited return from knee injury, as he replaces Victor Lindelof at the heart of defence. David De Gea is a surprise absentee, and it looks like Mourinho has handed a rest to his number one, with Sergio Romero deputising in goal.

Matteo Darmian, Daley Blind, Ander Herrera, Marouane Fellaini and Jesse Lingard are the other players coming in, with the latter making his 100th appearance for Manchester United. Meanwhile, Paul Pogba has been handed the captain’s armband.
