Manchester United return to continental action on Thursday, when Turkish outfit Fenerbahçe visit Old Trafford. Spearheaded by former United striker Robin van Persie, and coached by his wily compatriot Dick Advocaat, Fener sit provisionally top of the Europa League group, having picked up four points from their first couple of matches. They’ve certainly got the potential to make life difficult for United.
However, José Mourinho’s side will certainly be expecting to have enough to beat their visitors — especially given their home advantage. However, we can expect Mourinho to make several changes from their side that held Liverpool to a goalless draw at Anfield on Monday, with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata, Memphis Depay and Timothy Fosu-Mensah sure to be expecting a start.
