Erik ten Hag will be desperate to obtain a result in this fixture after a bitterly disappointing start to his European campaign at Old Trafford. The Red Devils were left defeated by a Real Sociedad side spearheaded by a fantastic David Silva performance on his return to Manchester.
The home side on the other hand started off their Europa League campaign in great fashion, emerging 3 – 0 winners against Omonia Nicosia – seeing them now sit comfortably at the top of the group.
Let’s waste no time and get into things. Here’s all the information you need to know regarding the fixture between FC Sheriff and Manchester United.

Manchester United have three that will definitely be out. Anthony Martial, Facundo Pellistri and Brandon Williams are all nursing injuries. Donny van de Beek is in contention to start, however, his fitness is also questionable after picking up a knock and not playing for the majority of the campaign.
