Manchester United will be looking to secure a positive result from the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final with Barcelona at Old Trafford this evening.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has to make-do without Nemanja Matic as the Serbian international failed to prove his fitness so Scott McTominay and Fred continue in midfield alongside Paul Pogba in midfield. As expected, Ander Herrera is once again out with a muscle problem.
Diogo Dalot keeps his place in the starting eleven as he plays in a more advanced role with Ashley Young continuing at right-back. Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof make-up the back four with the likes of Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo on the bench.
There is some good news for Man Utd as Marcus Rashford is passed fit to return up front while Romelu Lukaku also keeps his place meaning Anthony Martial, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard have to settle for place among the substitutes.
As for Barcelona, former Liverpool star Luis Suarez starts up front along with Lionel Messi while Philippe Coutinho completes a formidable-looking front three.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
De Gea, Young, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw, Dalot, McTominay, Fred, Pogba, Lukaku, Rashford
Subs: Romero, Jones, Rojo, Pereira, Mata, Lingard, Martial
Ter Stegen, Semedo, Pique, Lenglet, Alba, Busquets, Arthur, Rakitic, Coutinho, Messi, Suarez
Subs: Cillessen, Dembele, Malcom, Sergi, Vidal, Umtiti, Alena
