Should we progress tonight? Definitely. Will we progress tonight? Who knows. @wellway27 here for Basel v United...

Away we go...United in ‘Southampton’ Grey

Team Romero Darmian Smalling Rojo Blind Herrera Pogba Lamppost Lingard Lukaku Martial

Pitch looks dreadful..It’s been relaid and is bobbling everywhere. Surprise surprise Fellaini is caught in possession inside 3 minutes

I’m sure Rojo especially is delighted to make a return from a long term knee injury on this kind of surface

Lingard nearly plays Tony M in but his slide rule pass is cut out..Decent start and fairly even (5)

Elyounossi with a lovely jinking run away from the pedestrian Blind but Smalling bundles it clear

Pass of the season from Pogba finds Lukaku and he wriggles clear but the keeper saves (11)

Ball then recycled back out on the left and the cross picks out Fellaini back stick and his towering header beats the keeper but Akanji acrobatically clears from under his crossbar

Another chance as Blind whips in a decent free kick from the right and Fellaini heads wide this time (16)
