The Premier League giants crashed to a surprise 1-0 defeat away to Feyenoord in their Europa League opener.

Jose Mourinho’s side have done well in their last two matches and the Red Devils will be looking to bounce back against the Ukrainian side.

Manchester United are firm favourites to win the competition this year and should be able to pick up a big win at Old Trafford tomorrow.

Jose Mourinho could choose to rest the likes of Luke Shaw and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Both players are still recovering from their fitness issues and were not risked against Leicester on Saturday.

Defender Phil Jones is set to miss out through an injury and Anthony Martial remains a doubt.

However, Wayne Rooney is expected to start here after being dropped to the bench against the Premier League champions.

Ibrahimovic has been granted a short vacation to Italy and the Swede will miss the game. The former PSG star has been in supreme form so far and his absence could be a bit of a blow for the home side.

Manchester United’s Predicted Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Darmian, Smalling, Bailly, Blind; Carrick, Pogba; Memphis, Rooney, Mata; Rashford

Rashford is 11/4 to score the first goal.

Zorya Team News & Preview

Zorya are a relatively unknown side in the Europa League this season.

The Ukrainian outfit will look to pull off an upset at Old Trafford this week. They will be aware of United’s inconsistencies and if the home side performs like they did against Feyenoord, Zorya will have every right to fancy their chances.

This is their first ever match against English opposition and they will want to prove a point with a statement result here. Mourinho is likely to rotate his squad and if he chooses to field a weakened side, it could work to Zorya’s advantage.

Zorya have a fully fit squad to choose from and Yuriy Vernydub should be able to field his strongest eleven here.

Zorya’s Predicted Starting Lineup (4-4-1-1): Shevchenko; Kamenyuka, Sivakov, Forster, Sobol; Karavaev, Gordienko, Grechyshkin, Petryak; Ljubenovic; Kulach

United’s second-string could slip up again in Europe – Zorya are an impressive 5/1 to draw or win on Thursday night.

Manchester United vs Zorya Prediction

Manchester United will be hoping to pick up their first European win of the season.

After the defeat against Feyenoord, a win here is most important for the Premier League side.

They have managed to recover from their slump with two back to back wins and are the better side here.

A home win seems quite likely regardless of how well Zorya perform.
