Manchester United kick off their Europa League group stage campaign against Astana at Old Trafford tonight.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made a number of changes from the side that beat Leicester City in the Premier League last weekend. Sergio Romero starts in goal with David De Gea rested while Axel Tuanzebe is given his chance to impress in defence as Victor Lindelof is rested.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is also given the night off so Diogo Dalot returns from injury to start at right-back while Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones are also recalled to make their first starts of the season.
Fred comes in to make a rare start in the Man Utd midfield alongside Nemanja Matic and youngster Angel Gomes gets a chance to impress with Scott McTominay and James Garner among the substitutes.
Teenage star Mason Greenwood is handed a start in the Man Utd attack along with Marcus Rashford and Tahith Chong. Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard are named on the bench along with Ashley Young and Harry Maguire.
