Jose Mourinho tips star player to perform for Manchester United in the Champions League

United boss Jose Mourinho was unable to give a definitive update on Pogba's injury, admitting he does not yet know the full extent of the injury before a scan on Wednesday.

But Fellaini was only on the pitch because United captain Paul Pogba hobbled off in the 19th minute with an apparent hamstring injury which may keep him sidelined for the rest of the month.

Basle were unbeaten on their two previous visits to Old Trafford but the Swiss champions never looked like getting anything out of Tuesday's encounter.

Goalkeeper David de Gea is set to be United's first-choice goalkeeper in Europe, with Mourinho confirming he will not repeat his selection policy of last season, when back-up Sergio Romero played in the Europa League.

"After 2-0 I think everything changed and we stopped to play, stopped to think, stopped to play seriously".

"But it was bad decisions, fantasy football, PlayStation football, flicks and tricks". You gamble a little bit.

"We can learn from this, and this is what I told my team at the final whistle", Basel manager Raphael Wicky said.

"The only match we made a decision to play with three [Herrera] played, today we went back to two again. We need to play our best football to win the games".

Mourinho said he wasn't sure about the severity of the injury, but the France midfielder left Old Trafford on crutches.

Pogba appeared to sustain a hamstring injury, and was replaced by Marouane Fellaini, who went on to open the scoring in a 3-0 win for the hosts.

Manchester United's Ander Herrera says team success is his top priority despite the frustrations of a lack of game time this season for the Premier League leaders.

Lindelof does not expect Paul Pogba's absence to prove too much of a problem either.

He said: "I didn't speak yet with him or the medical department but the squad is for injuries, the squad is for suspensions".
