Feyenoord who are currently top of the table with 7 points can book their place in knockout stages with a win and having already beaten United earlier in the season they will be confident of atleast getting a point at Old Trafford. However if United win and Fenerbahce lose their game against Zorya, United will qualify with a game to spare.
Team News & Starting Lineups: Mourinho has rested the likes of Wayne Rooney, Luke Shaw, Antonio Valencia, Henrikh Mkhitarya and Jesse Lingard which means we might see several changes in the starting lineup. Rashford is certain to start alongside Martial and Ibrahimovic while Mata, Herrera might also get a chance one way or the other. Below is the possible starting lineups of both teams.
Feyenoord on the other hand has made absolute superb start in the Dutch Eredivisie winning all five of their opening league games and they will certainly provide a difficult game for United on Thursday night.
