Mourinho told a press conference at St Jakob-Park on Tuesday: "I think it's a conversation between doctors". "But you don't play for one of the biggest clubs in the world for as long as I have and win every trophy bar the Champions League without being able to do everything a top defender needs to do, be it playing or defending".

Manchester United are just within a point of securing qualification to the next round of the UEFA Champions League.

For Manchester United both Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba came back from injury and were on United team that beat Newcastle United 4-1 at the weekend and are in line to play some part against Basel. "We play Brighton in two days I need to give some players a rest and I need to give some players a chance".

"Zlatan goes on the bench tomorrow and normally he plays". If the team isn't winning, his presence will be important.

The Armenian has been a regular fixture for Jose Mourinho this season and has played at least 45 minutes in United's previous 11 fixtures.


Asked if he had spoken to England manager Gareth Southgate and if he wanted to, Mourinho said: "No".

"No questions about Martial, no questions about Chris Smalling, it's always about players in a certain moment, match, period who didn't play or was not my option".

Several hours before Man United's Champions League away match at Basel, three players have gone missing.

"Pogba's such a huge player in terms of creativity". 10 goals scored shows that they are very good going forward, while they have only conceded once, which displays that they are not a side that is overly dependent on either facet of the game.

Mkhitaryan started the season in fine form but has been struggling to influence matches in recent weeks, particularly the 0-0 draw with Liverpool at Anfield and defeats to Huddersfield Town and Chelsea.
