Jose Mourinho Press Conference Previewing FC Basel

Manchester United had to take their first-half chances as they lost to Basel admits José Mourinho

FC Basel v Manchester United

The 36-year-old travelled with the squad to Switzerland ahead of their penultimate clash in the group stages of the Champions League, but Mourinho stated that he will have to come off the bench in the St. Jakob-Park.

Rio Ferdinand criticised Manchester United for a wasteful performance after Jose Mourinho's side failed to secure their place in the Champions League last 16 following a 1-0 loss at Basel.

The Red Devils were the superior team in the first half but the visitors couldn't make the breakthrough.

Noise debunked as coming from missing Argentinian submarine
However, Argentina's navy will take advantage of better weather conditions Tuesday and continue searching for the submarine. The ARA San Juan submarine, with 44 crewmen on board, last communicated with their command base on November 15.

Paul Pogba sliced through the Basel defence and found Romelu Lukaku, whose shot on the turn was well saved by Tomas Vaclik.

The Manchester United manager goes with Sergio Romero in goal, while at the back Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo are the central duo.

And Manchester United were left to rue a wasteful performance in the first half after failing to heed Basel's warning shots when Michael Lang scored a victor in the final minute of normal time.

5-week Ontario college strike comes to an end
If recent polls are right, those seats will be harder for the Liberals to defend in 2018 than they were to win in 2014. Flay said extending the semester with a shortened Christmas break will be problematic for students who aren't local.

Jose Mourinho claimed Mkhitaryan's omission against Newcastle was down to tactical reasons and the fact that he wanted to play Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford in the same team. "In this moment, we have Pogba, Fellaini, Matic, McTominay, next week I can imagine you will ask why is this player not playing".

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's introduction from the bench did little to inspire a United improvement and they were made to pay for their very bad second-half decline late on.

In Man United's final training session before the Basel game, three players were noticeable absent.

A Sunny and Cool Afternoon
It will be mostly sunny with clouds sailing through, reaching a high near 47 degrees, according to the NWS. Temperatures will be cool, but this week is expected to be sunny as we approach the Thanksgiving holiday.

United would do well not to underestimate Basel, who beat Benfica 5-0 not too long ago and also won away at CSKA (even if they then lost their home leg). How many times did wave and wave of attack get in beyond the Manchester United midfield?
