Manchester United will bid to bounce back from their defeat to Feyenoord when they take on Zorya Luhansk in the second round of games in the Europa League group A.
Jose Mourinho’s side lost in Holland in their opening game, going down 1-0. The result was sandwiched in between back to back Premier League defeats.
They bounced back last weekend however with a comprehensive win over defending Champions, Leicester City.
While they have won four and drawn two with Ukrainian opponents, this will be the first ever meeting with Zorya and they will be keen to bounce back and get back to winning ways in Europe.
Much of the focus in that win was the decision to drop Wayne Rooney. The England forward has endured a difficult start to the season and looks out of form.
With his Premier League spot gone for the immediate future, the Europa league offers the former Everton man the best chance for game time and a chance to rediscover his form.
There is bad news however, with Rooney ruled out with a back injury, while midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan is also ruled out. Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic should be given a start in the side.
Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw are also set to miss the clash due to injuries while Morgan Schneiderlin could feature.
The Ukrainian side will be very known an unknown quantity. They secured their place in Europe on the back of a strong campaign last time out which saw them achieve a fourth-placed league finish and reach the final of the Ukrainian Cup, where they were beaten 2-0 by Shakhtar Donetsk.
This is the first time they have reached the group stages of the Europa league.
One man very familiar to Zorya is Mkhitaryan.
The Armenian star scored four goals in three games for Shakhtar Donetsk against Zorya between 2012 and 2013.
It should be a difficult trip for the Ukrainians, who finished fourth in their domestic league last season.
Their odds of 25/1 speak volumes and this should really be a walkover for Manchester Utd, who looked back to their best last weekend, thumping Leicester 4-0.
With Rooney ruled out of the side tonight with injury, Mourinho has one less headache, and United could well score a few at home.
There is very little value in backing the home win at 2/11, however Skybet offer 11/8 on Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score at anytime, and for there to be over 2.5 goals in the match.
That looks a very shrewd bet and one which should provide a decent return on stakes.
