Common sense team selection. May make for a difficult night though.

Brought that on themselves.. Still long odds on to win group and only a 5-0 reverse at home to Moscow combined with Basel winning in Benfica would stop United qualifying.

BT reckon it壇 take a seven goal defeat for United not to go through..

What was that second half about? Was Jose's HT teamtalk? 'Rest yourselves there lads I don't want to see as much effort as in the first half!'?

1st half was good from United probably deserved to lead 2 or 3-0. 2nd half Basel the better team and deserved a goal but that game would have finished 0-0 if Daley Blind wasn't sleeping on the back post on that late goal.

That would be correct...if CSKA and Basel win the next day, it comes down to a mini-league between the games of those three teams.  Basel have played the four games with 6 points and a goal difference of -1.  CSKA have played 3 and goal difference is -4, with United played 3, goal difference +4.   For United to finish third, they must lose by 7 or more and Basel win their last game away to Benfica.  If Basel draw or lose United will be second if they lose by more than 3 at home to CSKA, whom they beat 4-1 away.  CSKA go top as well with a three goal with while scoring 5 or more at Old Trafford.  A 4-1 win is not enough for CSKA to overtake United, as the tie-breaker goes to all the way to the sixth (goal difference in all group games) and neither will a 3-0 CSKA win help as United have the away goal.

So avoid a 7 goal loss sees United through.  Lose by 2 or less and they will still top the group.

Put a team out to draw and you値l get bate! Shoulda went for it and rest up on last match! Only positives can be more game time for the lads coming back from injury

Listened to it on the radio.. hit the post a few times and overall 65% possession, yes but unless you put ball in the net all those near misses mean feck all... United hammered Arsenal one year in the FA cup final, still got beat! How many chances does it take ?

I think his point is that on the first half performance it is obvious that they were not 'put out to draw'.

Not a great result but will have no effect in the grand scale and I still expect Utd to top the group.

Dont give a monkeys about the result last night has no bearing on the group as far as United are concerned.

Fellaini has two clear cut headers which on most other days both would have ended up in the net, it was all too easy in the first half. Probably a bit of complancency set in afte half time and Basel were a good bit better.

Positives, Pogba again looked to be coming back strong, Rojo looked quick and sharp and more minutes for Ibra.

Couple of big weeks coming up so will need the squad all firing.
