Jose Mourinho has made a number of changes to his Man United team which beat St. Etienne 3-0 on Thursday night.

Ashley Young, Marcos Rojo and Matteo Darmian come into defence with Luke Shaw still unable to find a place in the team as he is on the bench.

In midfield Michael Carrick returns from a minor muscle injury as does Henrikh Mkhitaryan who has overcome his illness. Marcus Rashford gets a rare start in a central striking role.
