Confirmed: Midtjylland and Manchester United line-ups

Old Trafford 2

Here is how Manchester United will line up for this evening’s match:

Manchester United have travelled to Denmark this week to take on FC Midtjylland in the last 32 of the Europa League.

Louis van Gaal’s side slipped into the competition after failing to qualify from their Champions League group last year and while they will be disappointed this offers them arguably their best opportunity to secure a place in Europe’s elite competition again next season.

United must do without captain Wayne Rooney after the England international was ruled out for around six weeks with a knee injury, leaving French international Anthony Martial to take on the responsibility of scoring the goals both domestically and in Europe.

The pressure on van Gaal remains and for every positive performance United deliver it is quickly followed by a poor one, so the vital thing for the players is to build some consistency in the final three months of the campaign.

United should win this one even with the changes to the starting XI, but it will not be easy…
