Jose Mourinho’s side have strengthened all across the pitch this summer and are one of the contenders to make a deep run into Europe’s premier competition this season.

Team News

Manchester United will be without the suspended Phil Jones and Eric Bailly and the injured Marcos Rojo. The visitors do not have any injury or suspension concerns.

Manchester United Possible Starting Lineup: David de Gea, Matteo Darmian, Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling, Daley Blind, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Marcus Rashford, Romelu Lukaku.

FC Basel Possible Starting Lineup: Tomas Vaclik, Bias Riveros, Manuel Akanji, Marek Suchy, Michael Lang, Geoffroy Serey Die, Kevin Bua, Luca Zuffi, Renato Steffen, Taulant Xhaka, Ricky van Wolfswinkel.

“I hope Rashford and Lukaku will continue to play well; the season has really only just started and we have many games until the end, so I am hopeful that they can continue to do well.

My team-mates have helped me to become a part of the team very quickly and I’ll work hard to help them too. We want to win titles this season and I’m happy that I’m part of this great club.”

– Nemanja Matic, Manchester United.
