CONFIRMED: Darmian, Schneiderlin, Pogba & Martial start against Fenerbahce; Mkhitaryan on the bench!

Manchester United face Fenerbahçe in the UEFA Europa League at the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium in Istanbul a fortnight after beating the Turkish side 4-1 at Old Trafford. United need to take all three points to given them a good chance of making the knockout stages of the tournament, with two matches remaining, meaning that a victory over Feyenoord at Old Trafford on the 24th November should all but put them through in Europe’s secondary competition. This could be United’s best chance of UEFA Champions League football next season with United currently in eighth place in the Premier League, just eight points from the top spot with ten matches played. United do need to change their form as they have not won in the league since the 4-2 humiliation of reigning champions Leicester City at the end of September. United played well in their last match, a 0-0 draw against Burnley at Old Trafford, despite having 37 shots on goal and playing some good football, Tom Heaton, the wood work and a lack of luck left United feeling frustrated. Beating Robin van Persie’s Turkish side will put United in good stead ahead of the trip to Swansea City on Sunday.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Darmian, Blind, Rojo, Shaw;

Schneiderlin, Herrera;

Rashford, Pogba, Martial;

 Rooney

Substitutes:

Romero; Jones; Mata, Young, Mkhitaryan, Fellaini; Ibrahimovic
