Mata, Mkhitaryan and Ibrahimovic lead the line; Romero in goal

Manchester United face Saint-Etienne in the second leg of the UEFA Europa League round of 32 this evening. Last week, United beat the French side 3-0 with a hat-trick from Zlatan Ibrahimovic in a match where United prevailed but were not at their best. United then went on to beat Blackburn Rovers 2-1 in the Emirates FA Cup on Sunday, conceding the first goal and their first goal in their last six matches. Jose Mourinho’s side is still fighting in four competitions this season, with their first cup final on Sunday at Wembley against Southampton to contest for the EFL Cup.

Manchester United:

Romero;

Young, Smalling, Bailly, Blind;

Carrick, Pogba;

Mata, Fellaini, Mkhitaryan;

Ibrahimovic

Substitutes:

De Gea; Valencia, Rojo; Martial, Lingard, Schweinsteiger; Rashford

Saint-Etienne:

Ruffier;

Malcuit, Theophile-Catherine, Perrin, Pogba;

Veretout, Pajot;

Hamouma, Saivet, Monnet-Paquet;

Beric

Substitutes:

Moulin, Lacroix, Roux, Selnaes, Lemoine, Intima, Pierre-Gabriel

United have played Saint-Etienne three times in the history of both clubs, winning twice and drawing once, the last occasion after last week was back in 1977, in which the home leg was played on Plymouth. The French side, which has Paul Pogba’s brother as a defender did attack United and gave them a match, which is what will be expected in France this evening. United are near enough in the draw for the round of 16 in the competition, an early goal could well confirm that, but that will not stop the French side from trying to orchestrate something to gain some respect from the fixture as it was only a year ago that United feel to Danish minnows Midtjylland.
