7′ FERNANDES!!! WHAT A STRIKE! 1-0 MANCHESTER UNITED! The hosts make their early pressure tell in emphatic fashion. Telles’ corner is headed straight into the path of the playmaker, who rifles a thunderous first-time strike into the roof of the net.

5′ Neat play by Martial as he cleverly turns away from a challenge in the box. However, Ozcan makes a vital intervention for the visitors.

4′ Indeed, the hosts have made a bright start to this contest and quickly settled into their rhythm as they neatly knock the ball around maintaining possession.

2′ GREAT RUN! United go straight onto the attack with Rashford embarking on a deep run into the heart of the visitors’ defence. The England international weaves in and out of the challenges, before his shot is denied by Gunok.

1′ The referee blows his whistle and the visitors get the match underway!

The visitors also make two changes from last time out. There are plenty of familiar faces in the starting line-up including Martin Skrtel, Nacer Chadli, Demba Ba and Rafael, who returns to Old Trafford.

Manchester United make two changes to the side that beat West Bromwich Albion on Saturday. Donny van de Beek comes into the side as does Edinson Cavani, who makes his first start for the club. Paul Pogba misses out.
