Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has praised opponents Basel for getting their pitch into a playable state for this evening's Champions League tie.

"Zlatan goes on the bench tomorrow", Mourinho confirmed in his pre-match press conference. I chose to play Marcus Rashford and Martial together. We play so many different tournaments, not just the Premier League, the cups and the Champions League and we need to be ready. CSKA now trail United by three points and, while they travel to Old Trafford in the last game of the group, the Russian side would need a miracle to overtake Mourinho's men.

'The more that we are fit to play the better for everyone. "Instead of 15, he may play 20 or 25 minutes, but he's not in condition to start".

United will be without Phil Jones as he's been ruled out for at least another two games after sustaining a thigh injury while on worldwide duty with England earlier this month.

When asked if he had spoken to England boss Gareth Southgate, Jose Mourinho said: "No".

"If the team is not winning, his presence on the pitch will be important and it will be positive for him to play with (Romelu) Lukaku". We don't have Jones, we don't have Eric Bailly again, so Smalling has to play every match and well, that we can say. 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.

"When you play for such a club, the expectation is wonderful and you always have to win", he told ESPN FC.

"Pogba's such a huge player in terms of creativity. With him we have much more creation". "The answer is very simple, until the global board change the rules I can only play 11".
