With Wayne Rooney out injured, Manchester United will be looking for its first win in this season's Champions League when they host FC Basel on Tuesday.

United were held to a 1-1 draw by Benfica in the opening Group C match, and also dropped their first points in the Premier League on Saturday at Stoke. But despite the 1-1 draw, United stayed in first place ahead of Manchester City on goal difference.

Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson will have to cope without Rooney against Basel because of a hamstring injury.

Ferguson says "hopefully, we can strengthen our position. Basel are a decent side though."

Basel lead Group C after beating Romanian champion Otelul Galati, who host Benfica on Tuesday.
