CONFIRMED: Rooney, Mkhitaryan, and Mata start against Zorya

Manchester United face Zorya Luhansk in their final UEFA Europa League match of the season knowing that a draw will see them through into the knockout stages of the competition. United have fared well in the cup competitions this season, faltering in the league. United need to start playing like a team that have not given up, in all competitions, starting tonight. A victory will give the club some breathing space, knowing that only domestic football will happen for the foreseeable future with the Europa League not starting again until February. United will entertain Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Sunday, knowing that anything less than a win will unleash a barrage of criticism, which I think is why Jose Mourinho left Michael Carrick, Antonio Valencia, and Matteo Darmian in Manchester, giving him a decent start in the match with players not having to travel to the Ukraine. United should have this match in the bag well before the final 20 minutes of the match, if not, they are playing with the clubs only hope of securing UEFA Champions League football next season. Here are the starting XI and list of substitutes for both teams this evening:

Manchester United:

Romero:

Young, Bailly, Rojo, Blind;

Herrera, Pogba;

Mata, Rooney, Mkhitaryan;

Ibrahimovic

Substitutes:

De Gea; Jones, Fosu-Mensah; Lingard, Fellaini; Martial, Rashford

Zorya Luhansk:

Levchenko;

Opanasenko, Sivakov, Forster, Sukhitsky;

Karavayev, Kharatin, Chaykovskiy, Petryak;

Ljubenovic, Bezborodko

Substitutes:

Shevckenho, Kulach, Lipartia, Paulinho, Grechyshkin, Bonaventure, Checher
