Even though Manchester United won 3-0 over FC Basel, it wasn’t the perfect night for Man United fans due to Paul Pogba’s injury. But Manchester United and Mourinho have finally won over Basel.
Our players ratings are as the following:
De Gea: What a save on the 64th minute. Legend. 8/10
Young: Mourinho decided to rest his aging right back and playing Young after coming back from the injury, but he had a good game and was dangerous with one assist. 7/10
Lindelof: Was a bit shaky before the end of the first half and left a player alone with the ball near the 18 yards area. But he didn’t play yet with Man United except the Super Cup. 6/10
Blind: Assisted the second goal but got booked 6/10
Matic: Good game like usual 7/10
Pogba: Got injured in the first half. N/A
Mata: Helped in the attack and was active during the game 7/10
Martial: Couldn’t impress but tried. He missed a clear chance as well. 6/10
Mkhitaryan: Missed a clear chance infront of the net. 6/10
Lukaku: Great goal in a perfect time, and created a chance for Miki, but he missed it. 8/10
Fellaini: Made the difference after few minutes by scoring, and during the whole game he proved his haters wrong. And he was behind the third goal. 8/10
Rashford: He was going to be an N/A, but his late goal gives him 8/10. Great positioning and keeps on scoring. He was discovered in the Champions League and he scores again in this great competition.
Man of the match: I think Fellaini didn’t make us feel that Pogba isn’t playing and he scored the opening goal and was defending well. I will chose him as the MOTM
Jose Mourinho (Manager): Great match and preparation. He wanted to secure the first place in the group and focus again on the Premier League. Great changes even with Pogba’s injury. 8/10
