It’s been a difficult start to the new campaign for Erik ten Hag’s United, following back-to-back defeats against Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford.
But a meeting with an old rival awaits under the lights on home soil as we look to kickstart our term with a big performance in a historic fixture.

Ten Hag could give us some clues to the XI that he will pick during his pre-match press conference on Friday.
Victor Lindelof and Anthony Martial both missed our last outing at Brentford and will, no doubt, be among the talking points during the media briefing.
