Five substitutes are permitted to feature as per rules of this season’s Champions League.

Paul Pogba is injured and does not make the bench and nor is Scott McTominay, but Mason Greenwood does feature, with new signing Facundo Pellistri also among the substitutes.


This is the first time Edinson Cavani, Donny van de Beek and Alex Telles all start together.

United lost 2-1 in Turkey to lose momentum after two victories over Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig.

United still sit top of the group, but it is important to register a victory here.

The next match is at home to PSG, and positive results in both matches can seal qualification before the final group game away at Leipzig.
