Full Time: Istanbul Basaksehir 2-1 Manchester United

Manchester United fall to their first European defeat of the season as the referee blows the final whistle. 

Basaksehir produced a disciplined performance and exploited United's defensive deficiencies with two ruthless and effective counter-attacks. 

They lacked the final product with countless attacks breaking down and Solskjaer's changes left very little to be desired. 

Demba Ba also proved that age is just a number with a fine performance, although his legs eventually wore tired towards the end. 

Their form in the Champions League was the only defence mechanism in the debate regarding Solskjaer's future and another defeat against Everton on Saturday could seriously place his future in jeopardy.

“It’s not something we can put our finger on,” Maguire said. He added: “We take every game as it comes, we don’t see it as a Premier League game or a Champions League game.

“We just go into the game and try and win the game. That’s our motive in every match we play in.

“Obviously our Premier League results haven’t been as successful as our results in the Champions League but we go into it with the same focus and the same preparation.”
