Early team news
Ten Hag is likely to shuffle his pack for this game and so the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Maguire could well earn recalls to the starting XI. Casemiro, one of six summer arrivals, could be handed a first start against opposition he will know well from his time at Real Madrid.
Doubts remain over Antony Martial (Achilles) after he sat out the last three matches.
