Mourinho: Micki didn't play because we had many options

Basel v Manchester United live stream and confirmed line-ups talkSPORT Champions League commentary on Wednesday November 22

"There are always questions about somebody in a certain moment, a certain match and a certain period that didn't play".

Mourinho makes seven changes to the team that beat Newcastle, naming Paul Pogba, who scored and assisted on his return from injury against the Toon, as captain. It is not at all that I think the game is going to be easy, because I don't think it's going to be.

United only need a point at St. Jakob-Park to book a place in the last 16 as group winners having won their four previous games, beating the Swiss side 3-0 in the reverse fixture played at Old Trafford earlier in September. In particular defender Phil Jones, who was forced out with injury inEngland's recent friendly with Brazil, however, it was surprising to see just the one United defender in Gareth Southgate'sside with Chris Smalling been omitted from the squad. Zlatan and Paul are experienced players, top players and they give us a lot of things on and off the pitch. Romelu Lukaku needed someone to create for him, Pogba was doing it but Mkhitaryan wasn't. "Because what I want is my players to be happy and go to the national teams and an event like the World Cup".

"In this moment, we have Pogba, Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay".

According to the manager, Mkhitaryan didn't play against Newcastle because they had lots of options for that match and he made a decision to play Rashford and Martial together.

"Pogba's such a huge player in terms of creativity". I chose to play Marcus Rashford and Martial together. We can not afford to lose him to controversies and it is only a matter of time before he recaptures his form. "Until the worldwide board change the rules, I can only start with 11", said Mourinho.
