2016/17 Match Preview: Feyenoord vs Manchester United

Manchester United suffered a devastating loss to local rivals City at the weekend, and Jose Mourinho will be looking for his boys to bounce back away at Feyenoord in the Europa League. The game won’t be easy, though, but it does provide some of those fringe players with an opportunity to shine.

Our group isn’t the easiest and the away games, in particular, could pose a few problems. However, it gives Jose Mourinho to utilise the full capabilities of his squad, and we should see a much-changed side, but one that’ll still be full of immense talent.

Date: 15th September
Kick-off time: 18:00 BST

Team News

Jose Mourinho has a couple of injury issues ahead of the game, as both Phil Jones and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have been ruled out through injury.

Our manager has also made the decision to leave Wayne Rooney, Luke Shaw, Antonio Valencia and Jesse Lingard out of the squad, despite the foursome training yesterday morning before jetting out to Rotterdam.

The likes of Morgan Schneiderlin, Memphis Depay, Marcus Rashford and several others will be looking to get their first start of the season.

Score Prediction: Feyenoord 0-2 Manchester United

I think it’ll be a comfortable win for the away side. Hopefully, Marcus Rashford will continue his rich vein of form and grab himself a goal to give Jose something to really think about come the weekend.
