Manchester United’s possible progression into the Round of 16 was delayed by another Matchday after they suffered a shock 1-0 loss to FC Basel at St. Jakob-Park on Wednesday.

Jose Mourinho’s men have only themselves to blame for their profligacy, after numerous chances went begging in the first half. Basel found their feet in the final 45 minutes and rightly punished the visitors in the dying stages of the match, just when it looked like they would secure the point to guarantee top spot.

Michael Lang struck in the final minute of regulation time to give the hosts all three points and leave things in the balance in Group A. And Mourinho’s men rightly got the stick after a thoroughly poor performance on the night, with fans venting their frustrations on Romelu Lukaku in particular.

Jose Mourinho was also blamed for his decision to exclude Henrikh Mkhitaryan as well as his substitutions.
