    Decent performance, not a world beating one - but hey - it's Basel at Old Trafford.

    No Jones, no Bailly not much Pogba, no Valencia, no Zlatan and still more than comfortable. A few disappointing performances, Lindelof looked dodgy and Martial was a touch unlucky at times.

    Lack of left back could have cost us tonight.

    Okay performance, Fellaini superb, Mata and Mkhi very poor, it's annoying that we don't have great right winger

    Both fullback with an assist, it's been a while

    Professional performance.

    Fellaini MOTM. Young, Blind both had good games at fullback and got an assist each.

    Good stuff. Not easy losing Pogba early and with Basel playing so cautiously for most of the match.

    Good return to the CL for sure.

    Not sure any player played badly. Thought everyone was at least a 6/10.

    Very comfortable performance. Norm with Jose in cup games. I am confident we won't bottle qualification out of the group under him like we did with LvG.

    Fellaini MOTM. Young potentially a RB option, so atleast we have another one for depth in that position. Mkhi and Mata need to do a lot more in attack, but otherwise a good night.

    Paul Parker commentary was knocking United whole match. Summary at the end "United played quite poorly tonight..... blah blah and didn't score enough goals, but they'll take the win." wtf?

    Decent performance. Nice to see an average team brushed aside without breaking a sweat.

    Fellaini has been excellent.

    Mkhi with some excellent passages of play.

    Lindelof looked okay apart from once I think.

    Good to see Young back and playing well.

    Pogba :( hope he's back for Anfield.

    Only caught the second half. How bad did Pogba's injury look? A strain or a full on tear??

    Young and Fellaini were our best players. Not the first time I've thought that. Get rid of that dumb photo of Fellaini.

    Over all OK performance.

    Good win without excreting ourselves too much. Frustrating to see Pogba go off, hopefully it was a precaution.

    I thought Young was excellent.

    All smiles from me, think the score flatters them, some unlucky stuff from Miki in the first half (header from Mata's cross and that post). 3 up, 0 against, good bounce off that Stoke match for sure.

    Hope Pogba's out not for too long.

    Tbh thought we were pretty poor today, but it's nice to be able to put away teams like Basel without having to play particularly well.

    We need a GIF of Rashford "leaving the ball" for Blind, was one of the highlights!

    Great result. Comfortable win and they didn't threaten us at all. Lukaku and Rashford getting their CL debut goal. The only downside is Pogb's injury. Fellaini MOTM followed by Young.

    Also good that Benfica lost as they'll be the main contender with us to pass this group.

    Young to be our LB till Shaw is completely fit, Afro did an awesome job replacing Pogba. Martial disappointing, Mata & Mkhi really really bad. Otherwise a good performance. Got the job done.

    Good job in winning comfortably.

    Pogba Injury a big blow.

    Martial didn't take his chance.

    Disappointed with the crowd, quiet and leaving early.

    Fellaini MOTM.

    Solid performance, 3-0 at home against a side that traditionally gave us issues.

    Lukaku, Fellaini, Lindelof, and Young all impressed me.

    Mkhitaryan and Mata offered little, and it's a weakness that needs to be sorted along with our full backs.
