Marcus Rashford and Morgan Schneiderlin start for Manchester United

But there's no place in the starting XI for Memphis Depay or Timothy Fosu-Mensah.

As expected, Jose Mourinho has shuffled his side for tonight's Europa League group game against Feyenoord. Marcus Rashford is rewarded for his general brilliance with a start up front, and he'll be flanked on by two players returning to first team duties, Anthony Martial and Juan Mata.

There's some mild excitement in midfield, as Mourinho's gone for the tBB-preferred combination of Morgan Schneiderlin, Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba. Two of those have the chance to stake a claim on a first team spot; the third, Pogba, has a miserable performance to get over. It'll be interesting to see whether they're playing in a traditional three or a two-behind-the-one, and who slots in where.

At the back, we've three players making their first starts of the season. Matteo Darmian comes in at rightback, Marcos Rojo on the opposite flank, and we've out first chance to see how Chris Smalling dovetails with Eric Bailly.

David de Gea's in nets. Hooray!

On the bench, helping Sergio Romero with his crossword, we've got Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini, Ashley Young, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Memphis Depay, who might have fancied his chances at starting tonight. Presumably we'll see him at some point.
