Man Utd pair Blind, Darmian defend performance in shock Basle defeat

Manchester United fullback Daley Blind defended their performance in defeat to FC Basle.

United were stunned 1-0, leaving their Champions League hopes of progress still on a knife edge.

"The second half was up and down," said Blind, who insisted Michael Lang's winner was impossible to defend.

"It was a good cross and he came round the back and I was a little too late. We have enough confidence in the group, we will be well."

United teammate Matteo Darmian argued they turned in a good performance.

"We played well in the first half but did not score. We go back to Manchester with a defeat so we have to recover well."
