Team News: Five at the back for Mourinho against Rostov!

Manchester United face FC Rostov in the round of 16 first leg clash of the UEFA Europa League. At the weekend, United drew 1-1 with Bournemouth in the Premier League, whereas Rostov beat Tom Tomsk 6-0 in the Russian Premier League. United need to sort out their way to the last eight in the competition, gaining the advantage of the Russian side away from home, doing the business in a weeks time at the Theatre of Dreams. United will be missing Luke Shaw and Wayne Rooney, presumably being rested for Monday’s Emirates FA Cup clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, the scene of their last defeat in the Premier League, losing 4-0 back at the tail end of October.

Manchester United:

Romero;

Young, Jones, Smalling, Rojo, Blind;

Fellaini, Herrera, Pogba;

Mkhitaryan;

Ibrahimovic

Substitutes:

De Gea; Valencia; Mata, Martial, Lingard, Carrick; Rashford

Both United and Rostov have not raced each other before, but against Russia opposition, United have fared well. Last season they were pitted against CSKA Moscow in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League, winning at Old Trafford and drawing away from home. In fact, a Russian team have only beaten United once inside 90 minutes – Zenit St. Petersburg in the UEFA Super Cup back in 2008, after United beat Chelsea to lift te Champions League trophy for the third time in their history. Torpedo Moscow beat United on penalties back in 1992, so keeping that record alive this evening with be in Jose Mourinho’s plans, even with the state of the pitch.have only beaten United once inside 90 minutes – Zenit St. Petersburg in the UEFA Super Cup back in 2008, after United beat Chelsea to lift te Champions League trophy for the third time in their history.
