Manchester United are back in Europa League action this evening as they take on Saint-Etienne.
Manchester United will be looking to see off Saint-Etienne without too much of a scare this evening as they play the second leg of their Europa League tie.
United claimed a convincing 3-0 win in the first leg last week, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring a hat-trick at Old Trafford.
Ibrahimovic was left out of the United line-up to take on Blackburn on Sunday, but he’s back in the team this evening as he leads the line up top.
Juan Mata and the returning Henrikh Mkhitaryan will support him, whilst Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini and the more-advanced Paul Pogba will play in midfield.
Ashley Young continues at right back, with Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling and Daley Blind across the back four, as Sergio Romero keeps his place in goal.
Anthony Martial dazzled against Saint-Etienne last week, but he’s back on the bench this evening, and joins Marcos Rojo, Marcus Rashford, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Jesse Lingard and Antonio Valencia on the bench, along with goalkeeper David De Gea.
The Saint-Etienne team again contains Paul Pogba’s brother Florentin in defence, whilst West Ham target Kevin Malcuit will start at right back.
Jordan Veretout and Henri Saviet – on loan from Aston Villa and Newcastle respectively – both start in midfield, with Robert Beric leading the line with support from Kevin Monnet-Paquet and Romain Hamouma.
The likes of Nolan Roux, Leo Lacroix, Ole Selnaes and Fabien Lemoine are all on the bench for Saint-Etienne, who face an uphill battle to make it through to the last 16 of the competition.
