Europa League: The United Xi to beat Fenerbahce
Things haven’t exactly clicked in the Premier League for Manchester United under Jose Mourinho.
The Red Devils are currently eighth in the table after winning only one of their last seven game. They have also failed to score in their last three league, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic struggling in front of goal.
Things have looked slightly more promising in the Europa League, however. After recovering from an opening game loss to Feyenoord, United earned themselves back-to-back wins including a comfortable 4-1 victory over Fenerbahce.
At the start of the season, it looked at though Jose Mourinho was going to treat the Europa League as a secondary concern and perhaps use the competition to blood United’s youngsters or give playing time to the club’s rotation options.
With a number of established players currently under-performing, however, the boundaries between who is a first-team player and who is on the cusp are becoming blurred.
That leaves Mourinho with some real selection dilemmas ahead of Thursday’s clash. But here’s a look at the XI the Portuguese should pick to claim another win over the Turkish club.
