Mkhitaryan starts: Predicted Manchester United side to play Feyenoord

Old Trafford 3

Here is how we predict Manchester United and Feyenoord will line up later this week:

To be played on Thursday 24th November 2016 at 20:05. Venue: Old Trafford,

Odds: Man Utd 4/11, Draw 7/2, Feyenoord 15/2

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho

Manchester United welcome Feyenoord to Old Trafford on Thursday evening for their latest Europa League clash.

It is fair to say the competition has not been kind to United in recent times and they are fighting to qualify from their group with two matches remaining.

Jose Mourinho’s men are third in Group A with six points from their first four matches, but with just one point separating the top three there is still all to play for.

United’s defeat to Fenerbahce last time out ensured the Turkish side currently lead the group and they cannot afford to make it back-to-back defeats given their opening day loss to Feyenoord.

In short, this week’s match is a must-win for Mourinho’s side.

In early team news, United are without Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling while Marouane Fellaini is a minor doubt due to a calf injury.

With all that in mind here is how we expect United to line up in what is a huge match for their European hopes this season:
