Adam: Stoke identified Pogba as Man United's weakness

Jose Mourinho accused his Manchester United stars of disrespecting Basle on Tuesday, claiming they were more interested in fancy flicks and "PlayStation football" than killing the tie off.

He was replaced by Marouane Fellaini, who went on to score Man United's first with bullet header and provide an assist for Marcus Rashford late on.

Paul Pogba was talking in the match programme about the "goosebumps" that he would experience upon hearing the Champions League anthem ring out at Old Trafford.

Pogba, who had been praised for his opening performances of the season, faced criticism following the draw and Adam believes the 24-year-old's roaming left Nemanja Matic "isolated" on a number of occasions.

'After 2-0 I think everything changed and we stopped to play, stopped to think, stopped to play seriously, ' Mourinho fumed.

"But to start with three points at home is always important. Big, small I don't know but a hamstring for sure".

But Mourinho was fuming with his side for taking their foot off the pedal when it reached 2-0.

While Mourinho could not comment on the severity of the midfielder's injury, he is certain that it is a hamstring injury.

"Probably the players felt the game was under control at 2-0 but football is football, you have to respect opponents".

"Until the second goal, we were very stable but, after that, we were not making the right decisions and we could have put ourselves in trouble". In my experience, muscular injury stops you from playing for a few weeks, I think.

"He knows what I can do and my quality".

"I was delighted with the win", he said.
