Jose Mourinho is set to ring the changes as Manchester United's Europa League campaign continues.

The weeks are much calmer when Manchester United aren't in crisis, hey? Nobody's been briefing against anybody else, nobody's been dragged through the opinion pieces, and the sky has stayed resolutely unfallen. All is calm up at Old Trafford.

Still, the season rumbles on, and United have another game on Thursday. Zorya Luhansk, who currently sit second in the Ukrainian Premier League, are on their way over for the second round of fixtures in the Europa League, and as you might expect, Jose Mourinho is going to make some changes.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been back in training since before the weekend's game and will make his return to the first team on Thursday night. Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial look set to miss out, however, with their respective knocks and tweaks.

Also missing may be Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is not injured but has, apparently, been given permission by Mourinho to go off gallivanting around Europe. Presumably Wayne Rooney will start up front. That'll be nice for him.
