Mourinho has kept the same back four from last weekend’s draw with Burnley as Matteo Darmian, Daley Blind, Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw sit in front of David De Gea.

Morgan Schneiderlin gets a rare start in midfield alongside Ander Herrera, while Paul Pogba has again been handed an advanced role and is flanked by Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial. Wayne Rooney captains the side from striker.

Mkhitaryan is joined on the bench by Marouane Fellaini, Ibrahimović and Juan Mata.

Kick off is at 6pm
