[Teams] Man Utd vs Basaksehir: Confirmed line-ups from Old Trafford
Manchester United are back in Champions League action as they take on Istanbul Basaksehir at Old Trafford this evening.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has handed Edinson Cavani his full debut in a Man Utd shirt as the South American leads the line up front tonight with Anthony Martial moving to the wing. Juan Mata is the man to drop out as Marcus Rashford keeps his place in the United attack.
Donny van de Beek is given another chance to impress as he starts in midfield alongside Fred. Paul Pogba isn’t fit enough to make the squad after missing the win over West Brom at the weekend while Scott McTominay is also not included in the matchday squad.
