Dream11 likely scenario:
Expect AZ Alkmaar to score here. Manchester United have too many injury issues and Ole is expected to ring in a handful of changes in the playing 11.
Manchester United team news: The home team will be without Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Eric Bailly, Paul Pogba, Diogo Dalot, and Marcos Rojo for this game.
Nemanja Matic has returned to the training ground and Ole may throw him into the action here. The former Chelsea midfielder has had an injury-plagued season and now finds big competition from both Scott McTominay and Fred in the midfield. It's highly unlikely that the Serbian becomes a regular fixture in the midfield now due to the form of aforementioned duo.
In addition, Luke Shaw, who made a comeback from injury to feature against Manchester City at the weekend, picked up a knock in that game and is a doubt for this match.
The likes of Marcos Rashford, Anthony Martial, Jese Lingard, Harry Maguire, David De Gea and Victor Lindelof are expected to get a rest here.
Expect Sergio Romero to start goal and Mason Greenwood to lead the attack, with Juan Mata, Axel Tuanzebe, Brandon Williams, Angel Gomes, Andreas Pereira, Ashley Young and Tahith Chong all in contention to start the match.
