Manchester United return to Champions League action on Wednesday, as they travel to Turin to take on group leaders Juventus. The Italian champions played José Mourinho’s side off the park in an embarrassingly easy win at Old Trafford last month; it’s hard to envisage the Reds putting up much more of a fight in the reverse fixture. With only one win from their first three European games, United could see themselves slip below Valencia and into third place.
Mourinho’s worries are exacerbated by a string of injury problems: Diogo Dalot, Marcos Rojo and Romelu Lukaku are all out; Marouane Fellaini, Antonio Valencia, Phil Jones and Scott McTominay are doubts. It’s anyone’s guess who’ll be given the nod up top. Meanwhile, Juve will be without Douglas Costa, Emre Can, Federico Bernardeschi and Moise Keane; Giorgio Chiellini and Blaise Matuidi face late fitness tests.
