The Basel vs. Man United clash will take place on Wednesday in Switzerland, and the kickoff is slated for 11:45pm Armenia time.

Mourinho will be especially frustrated by the defeat because it means he can not afford to rest players against CSKA, just days before the Manchester derby.

The Ivorian missed United's 4-1 win against Newcastle United on Saturday and was in the stands with fellow injured defender Phil Jones.

However United didn't seem bothered when they pieced together a sweeping move that nearly brought an early opening goal.

And striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who returned in the same match as a substitute after being out since April with a knee injury, will be on the bench again. The 36-year-old, who is in the final year of his contract with United, has not played a single minute in the Premier League this season.

With United appealing in vain for offside, Raoul Petretta's measured pass found Lang and he tapped in at the far post to leave Mourinho cursing.
