Confirmed Starting XI: Man United vs Astana (Europa League, 2019)

Manchester United begin their Europa League campaign this evening, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looking to win the competition the Reds hoisted back in 2017.

In terms of group, the Old Trafford outfit have been handed a kind draw and it all kicks off this evening against Astana of Kazakhstan.

The starting line-up is in, meaning the anticipation is over. The Baby Faced Assassin has remained true to his word, but keeping faith in youth… Yes, Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong, Mason Greenwood and Axel Tuanzebe all start!

If nothing else, this starting XI is exciting. It gives us fans to get a real look at our talented crop of youngsters in a competitive game – and I cannot wait.

Sergio Romero plays in goal, with an unusual back four in front of him. Diogo Dalot plays at right-back, Marcos Rojo starts at left-back while the central-defender combination is Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones.

Nemanja Matic will be tasked with protecting the back four, while Fred will be looking to get forward and join in on the attack.

Heres where things get seriously exciting. Angel Gomes starts in the #10 role. He’ll have Mason Greenwood to his right and Tahith Chong to his left. Marcus Rashford leads the line.
