Manchester United will return to the Champions League group stages when they take on Basel at Old Trafford this evening.

Jose Mourinho has made some changes from the side that drew at Stoke City at the weekend with Ashley Young coming in to make his first start of the season at right-back as Antonio Valencia is rested.

As expected, Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof come in to the defence in place of the suspended Eric Bailly and Phil Jones while Daley Blind returns at left-back.

Paul Pogba captains the United side in midfield alongside Nemanja Matic while Anthony Martial comes in to the attack in place of Marcus Rashford.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Man Utd

De Gea; Young, Smalling, Lindelof, Blind; Matic, Pogba; Mata, Mkhitaryan, Martial; Lukaku.
