Zlatan Ibrahimovic On Bench - Manchester United Team vs Basel Confirmed

Ibrahimovic makes Champions League history in Man Utd's Basel loss

Many predicted that he wouldn't return until December with the clash with Arsenal been ringed as the glorious return of Zlatan, but Mourinho surprised many as he made a cameo appearance in Saturday's 4-1 win over Newcastle.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned for Manchester United and nearly made an immediate impact with a spectacular scissor kickWhat is the team news? However, he only played 62 minutes during the fixture. He started off the current season quite brilliantly, providing 5 assists in his first 5 games, but eventually faded away as the season progressed.

At the back, both Eric Bailly and Phil Jones were missing.

"I don't think they have a good enough number 10 at the moment and that doesn't help Lukaku either". Now, the question is why is Micki not playing. The story is always the same. "In some positions, when you don't have injuries, you have lots of options in other positions", Mourinho said. Ander Herrera slots into midfield, as does Marouane Fellaini, while there is a start for Paul Pogba.

And what an incredible set of tennis the fans were gifted with as a result; drops shots, volleys and ace aplenty. The resilience that allowed Sock to come from behind and win the first set was nowhere to be seen in the second.

"We all know, myself and the fellow players, that certain players influence the levels of the team".

However United didn't seem bothered when they pieced together a sweeping move that nearly brought an early opening goal. "Until the worldwide board change the rules, I can only start with 11", said Mourinho.

This should come as a huge relief as Mkhitaryan, despite his poor form, is a top quality player. Let's hope he does it soon. We can not afford to lose him to controversies and it is only a matter of time before he recaptures his form.
