Manchester United grabbed all 3 points on a comfortable night against FC Basel in their opening game of the group stages in the Champions League. Bouncing back from the draw in midweek against Stoke, there were plenty of positives to glean from United's win on Tuesday despite the obvious glaring negative - which stood out like a sore thumb, whose impact may be much harsher than a sore thumb.
