Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho waves to the fans

Manchester United and Feyenoord go head-to-head on Thursday night.

Manchester United’s players have been put through their paces ahead of their Europa League clash against Dutch club Feyenoord on Thursday evening.

United are currently third in their qualifying group and they cannot afford to lose if they want to reach the knockout stages.

The competition has seen mixed results for United thus far, but having lost the reverse fixture they will be desperate to get another three points on the board and ensure a 100 per cent home record in the group stage.

Among those United players on show was young goalkeeper Kieran O’Hara. The 20-year-old has played three matches for the club’s under-23 side this season, conceding five goals in the process.

Bastian Schweinsteiger was also seen training as he continues to build up his fitness ahead of a likely January transfer, while £26million summer signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Wayne Rooney and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were all in the training party.

United boss Jose Mourinho is likely to make some changes for this encounter while also ensuring his starting XI is strong enough to get the job done.
