Manchester United player ratings v Basel as rated by the Manchester United Evening news:

David de Gea

Had little to do in his first European appearance since November. Had no issues with playing behind an entirely different back four from Stoke. 7

Ashley Young

Started in a position he has rarely shone in but had one of his finest United games. Alert and focused in both ends and crossed marvellously for Marouane Fellaini. 8

Victor Lindelof

An early dinked pass for Young fuelled his confidence and bar one flap towards the end of the first-half he enjoyed a relatively serene night. 7

Chris Smalling

Had little to do but there were was the odd rash moment and United could not rely on his distribution from centre half. 6

Daley Blind

Had to return to the side after Matteo Darmian stuttered at Stoke and his struggles at left-back continued until he crossed brilliantly for Romelu Lukaku. 6

Nemanja Matic

Another accomplished performance by the Serb. Benefited Paul Pogba and then Marouane Fellaini with his vigilance and positivity. 7

Paul Pogba

Was bright until he was forced off with a hamstring injury. Came back better after he suffered a similar injury in March. 6

Juan Mata

Whenever United start in 4-2-3-1, Mata has to start. Interchanged seamlessly with Henrikh Mkhitaryan again and slickened United’s attack more than the rain. 7

Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Missed a sitter but much more creative back in the number 10 role he was moved from at Stoke. Got caught in possession too often for Mourinho’s liking. 6

Anthony Martial

His most subdued display of the season so far. Regularly ran into traffic and was out-performed by the specialist winger on the opposite flank. 5

Romelu Lukaku

Lukaku was on selfless form and regularly invited teammates to attack. He is not renowned for his hold-up play but it was excellent again. Deserved his goal. 8

Subs

Marouane Fellaini

Imposed himself positively before he scored the opener and assisted Marcus Rashford’s goal. His importance is increasing. 8

Jesse Lingard

Freshened up the midfield. 6

Marcus Rashford

Scored his third of the season. 7
