Jose Mourinho pays tribute to Marcos Rojo performance

Henrikh Mkhitaryan in action for Manchester United against Chelsea GETTYHenrikh Mkhitaryan has been snubbed at Manchester United in the past couple of games

The Red Devils flew back from Switzerland straight after their disappointing 1-0 loss to Basel, which means they are not quite mathematically through to the last 16.

Ibrahimovic's appearance against Basel was only his second game back since returning from a knee ligament injury suffered during the Europa League quarterfinal victory against Anderlecht in April.

"Paul is still on this process where he can not reach the fatigue limit, he can not go more than 65/70 minutes and, with so many games consecutively, we need to protect such an important player for us". After a harrowing performance against Manchester City in October that saw him hooked at half-time, he did not make his manager's Premier League match day squad for the next eight games with Mourinho keen for his new acquisition to get up to speed with the physical demands of the Premier League. "They'll be competing to win this title without a doubt." he finished. Matic should start as the lone defensive midfielder and Rashford and Martial should start out wide vs Brighton.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic became the first player to represent seven different clubs in the Champions League when he came on as a 74th-minute substitute for Manchester United in their 1-0 defeat to Basel on Wednesday.

The Express report Mourinho said: "Bailly and Jones are out". "He could be playing a couple of weeks ago. That is important on the pitch because he's one more option for us and I think it's impossible for [Romelu] Lukaku to play every match, so we need this second option - another man, another striker", Mourinho added. The first half was very easy, he had lot of the ball, he didn't have to be physically demanding.

"I think it would strike fear into myself if I was playing against them, and it strikes fear into most teams", Smalling told reporters.
