Manchester United wil aim to bounce back after a disappointing loss against Bournemouth with a home match to Partizan in which a victory would guarantee United’s position in the Round of 32. Here’s all you need to know:
Teams: Manchester United and Partizan Belgrade
Date: 7th November 2019
KO: 20:00 GMT
Stadium: Old Trafford
Managers: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Savo Milosevic
Victor Lindelof has been ruled out of the Partizan game with a back injury and joins the injury list of Pogba, Bailly, Dalot, Fosu-Mensah and Luke Shaw. David de Gea is likely to take a break with Romero looking for another clean sheet in the Europa League. Brandon Williams will hope to continue his good form in cup competitions in Ashley Young’s place and Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard will hope for rare starting positions and try and push for the no.10 spot for Brighton.
Opta Facts about the game
