Galatasaray won the first game between the two sides in Old Trafford by a 3-2 scoreline and currently find themselves bottom of the group with just three points.

United will be missing several players heading into the game with Casemiro, Lisandro Martinez, Mason Mount, Jonny Evans, Christian Eriksen, Tyrell Malacia and Amad Diallo all injured while Marcus Rashford is unavailable due to being suspended.

Reds boss Erik ten Hag will however, have Rasmus Hojlund and Antony available in the squad he revealed in his pre-match press conference.

Ten Hag did not confirm whether either player would be available to start when asked about their availability for the game.

“They are in the squad,” Ten Hag responded when asked about the Untied duo as quoted on the official club website.

Ten Hag also made it clear that he intends to focus on the future and not the past when taking on Galatasaray who United have never beaten away from home.

“We have to make it our game, and that’s the history. Obviously, Manchester United has a great history but you can’t take any guarantee from it in the future, we have to make our own future,” he added.

“Tomorrow it’s about the future. We have to make it our game. It’s on us.”
