Starting XI: Feyenoord v Manchester United – UEFA Europa League 2016/17

Manchester United face Feyenoord in Rotterdam in the first group stage match of the UEFA Europa League this evening. Last season, United started in the UEFA Champions League, sharing a group with Feyenoord’s rivals PSV Eindhoven. United’s first match in the elite European competition was away to PSV, a year to the day. United lost 2-1, also losing Luke Shaw for the remainder of the season due to a double leg fracture. United drew the home match 0-0, exiting the Champions League at the group stage, falling into the Europa League. United beat Midtjylland, albeit on aggregate after losing the away match 2-1, willing 5-1 at home, then falling to Liverpool in the round of 16, exiting the competition at the same stage they exited the competition during the 2011/12 season under Sir Alex Ferguson at the hands of Athletic Bilbao. United have never won the Europa League, this will be the third time they have participated in the tournament, the first time from the group stages.
