Manchester United return to European action on Thursday, when they take on Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League. Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side are winless in four, and shouldn’t be expecting a walkover in the Serbian capital. Partizan are currently sitting top of the group, though only goals scored keep them above United at present.
United will still be without Paul Pogba and David de Gea, while Diogo Dalot, Luke Shaw, Nemanja Vidić, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Axel Tuanzebe and Eric Bailly have all failed to make the trip. Jesse Lingard has been included, along with a string of relatively unknown youngsters: Matej Kovar, Ethan Laird, Brandon Williams and James Garner were among those on the plane.
Partizan have only one confirmed absentee, though it’s a fairly important one: former Liverpool winger Lazar Marković is sidelined through injury.
