Manchester United ’s perfect Champions League record came to a surprise end at the hands of Istanbul Basaksehir.
The Red Devils defence was all over the place, but nowhere near Demba Ba as the former Chelsea ace put the hosts ahead.
The lead was doubled before the break though Anthony Martial swiftly pulled one back for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ’s side with a fine header.
The visitors were the better team in the second half without creating many clear-cut chances in Turkey.
And, it’s perhaps no surprise, that Daily Star Sport picked out more United losers than they did winners from a difficult night.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be very pleased to welcome the Frenchman back from suspension in the Premier League this weekend.
Martial netted his first chance of the game in Turkey with a fine header having missed out in the Prem due to a red card.
United struggled against Arsenal and the return of Martial, who will now be high on confidence, could be a blessing for Solskjaer.
The defender came on for his Champions League debut as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looked to freshen up his options.
Indeed, it was just his second Red Devils appearance this season having played the majority of the defeat to Crystal Palace.
The versatile star will be hoping to be given more opportunities as the season progresses with Solskjaer clearly not happy with his defence.
Having impressed on his first match in ten months against PSG last month, it wasn’t quite the same joy against Basaksehir.
Tuanzebe was hauled off at half-time with United’s defence having been all over the place in the opening 45.
Many believed Tuanzebe was Harry Maguire’s ideal partner after his performance in Paris but the pairing struggled tonight.
The goalkeeper was finally given a chance in the United goal, though he hardly gave the back-line any confidence.
Henderson would have been hoping to stake his claim to take David de Gea’s spot on a permanent basis but it’s unlikely that will be the case.
He didn’t have much chance with either goal though the lack of clean sheet will go against Henderson.
Donny van de Beek
Like Henderson, the Dutchman was again given a chance in the United midfield and was another that struggled to make it count.
Brought off for Paul Pogba after an hour summer signing Van de Beek failed to make an impact in the Red Devils midfield.
Many will already be wondering whether the ex-Ajax man has what it takes to succeed at the Premier League giants.
While his strike partner scored it was a “very frustrating night”, as said by BT Sport co-commentator Martin Keown, for Marcus Rashford.
He tried all across the front-line with no success as United plugged away to try and cut the two-goal deficit.
He couldn’t add to his four goals in the Champions League on a night that the Red Devils found extremely difficult.
