Manchester United will be boosted by the news that star striker Robin Van Persie looks set to return to the starting line up for the encounter with Shakhtar. The Dutchman has been missing with a groin injury since United’s Group A opener against Bayer Leverkusen last month.
RVP appeared off the bench in Saturday’s shock defeat to West Bromwich Albion, but veteran defender Rio Ferdinand is likely to miss out with a groin problem of his own.
Marouane Fellaini, Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra did not start against West Brom but are likely to feature, while Anderson, Fabio and Wilfried Zaha have not flown to Ukraine due to injuries.
Mircea Lucescu’s men also won their opening game, but head into the fixture on the back of a run of inconsistent league form, having won only one of their past five matches in the Ukrainian Premier League – a division they have won for the last four consecutive seasons.
They currently sit third in the table, having dropped 10 points from the opening 11 games – just one less than they missed out on in the whole of the previous campaign.
