Predicted Starting XI: Shakhtar vs United

Manchester United’s Champions League campaign continues tonight, as the Reds look to overcome a tricky Shakhtar Donestk side in the Donbass Arena. Albeit early days, United sit top of group A with three points on the board, and picking up at least a point in Ukraine tomorrow will certainly set United well on their way to progressing to the knockout stages.

David Moyes has confirmed that Rio Ferdinand will miss the game due to a groin problem, and both Anderson and Fabio will remain in Manchester. The boss rested several first-team players at the weekend and paid the price with a shock 2-1 defeat at home to West Brom. I expect many of the senior names to return to the line-up tonight, including Nemanja Vidic and Robin van Persie.

Predicted line-up

De Gea; Rafael, Vidic, Evans, Evra; Carrick, Fellaini; Valencia, Rooney, Welbeck; Van Persie
