Pep Guardiola’s Citizens ran out 6-3 winners at the Etihad Stadium and Ten Hag will be looking for a response from his wounded troops.

Here is the starting line-up the Dutchman has picked for tonight’s 5.45pm kick off at the GSP Stadium:

Starting XI: De Gea, Dalot, Lindelof, Martinez, Malacia, Casemiro, Eriksen, Fernandes, Antony, Sancho, Ronaldo.

Substitutes: Dubravka, Heaton, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Iqbal, Pellistri, Elanga, Garnacho, Martial, Rashford.

Manchester United starting line-up vs Omonia Nicosia

The twenty-time league champions sit second in Group E with three points after two games.

The Reds bounced back from losing to La Liga outfit Real Sociedad in our Europa League opener by beating Sheriff Tiraspol 2-0 last time out.

With United having back-to-back games against Omonia, who have no points from their opening two games, Ten Hag will want his side to gain six points, which will put us in a good position of securing the all-important top spot with two games remaining.

In the Europa League, the top side progresses automatically to the knockout stage of the competition next year, while the runners-up meet a third-placed team from the Champions League in a play-off.

Tonight’s clash against Omonia will see Ten Hag come up against former Celtic manager Neil Lennon who has previously managed four former Manchester United players.

The Northern Irishman played against Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United 12 times across spells with Leicester City and Celtic.

Back in November 2006, Lennon captained Gordon Strachan’s Celtic side to a 1-0 win against Manchester United at Celtic Park in the Champions League.

A certain 21-year-old by the name of Cristiano Ronaldo started that game.

Having been an unused substitute in the mauling to City, United’s number seven starts his third Europa League game in a row, and he’ll be looking to score his 700th club career goal tonight.
