A disappointing night for Jose Mourinho saw his Manchester United side defeated by Basel in Switzerland.
Despite only needing a draw to qualify as group winners, United failed to do so and they will now need to claim points against CSKA Moscow in matchday 6 to guarantee progression.
Despite having the bulk of the chances, the former Champions League winners seemed to take their foot off the gas and were punished with less than a minute of normal time to go, losing 1-0 to a committed Basel team.
While a number of United players under performed on the night, one player in particular had a very poor game and has subsequently come in for criticism.
Matteo Darmian, who is valued at £10.8 million by Transfermarkt, had a night to forget in Bern and some of the United faithful took to Twitter to express their fury at the defenders awful showing…
Absolutely no surprise the goal comes down United's right. Basel should've been targeting Darmian from the start. He's an utter liability. #mufc

Blind and Darmian are liabilities. January transfer window can't come soon enough for them to bugger off this team #mufc

Darmian's crosses are the worst on the solar system#MUFC

Darmian & Lingard are utter garbage. Shaw & Rashford is needed.

Sometimes I feel we play Darmian coz we have to fill that spot. Can't put out a team of 10. He does literally nothing.

Darmian is so bad. Shouldn’t be anywhere near United.
