Manchester United line-up: Romero, Valencia, Jones, Blind, Shaw, Carrick, Pogba, Mata, Mkhitaryan, Rooney, Ibrahimovic.

Manchester United substitutes: De Gea, Rojo, Fellaini, Herrera, Lingard, Memphis, Rashford.

The Red Devils play host to Eredivisie outfit Feyenoord at Old Trafford tonight in their crucial Group A encounter, where only a win will do.

The hosts are without two first-team players for tonight's game, with Chris Smalling and Eric Bailly both unavailable for selection due to injury.

United boss Jose Mourinho has had to endure heavy criticism of late, for his side's failure to win games after dominating possession.

Tonight's game will represent a good opportunity for United to build some momentum as they head into the Christmas period, however, and Mourinho will be hoping for his side to be more clinical in front of goal than they have been of late.

The Dutch outfit will by no means be a pushover tonight, and actually beat Mourinho's men 1-0 in the corresponding fixture in September.

They have lost just twice in their last 19 outings and currently sit top of the Eredivisie table, holding a two point lead over Ajax.

United desperately need a win tonight to keep their hopes of winning the competition alive, because on current form, they will struggle to make the Champions League with a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.
