Manchester United is level on points with Partizan in Group L, but a win for either team would give them a three-point cushion from the second spot.
United will be hoping to get their first away win ever since the famous 3-1 victory against PSG in the Champions League. The red devils are in turmoil as they’ve now registered their worst ever start in the league for 30 years in spite of a resilient performance against Liverpool over the weekend.
Meanwhile, Partizan currently occupies the fifth spot in the Serbian SuperLiga with 23 points on board and are seven points away from the top spot.
Date- Thursday, October 24 | Kick-Off- 10:25 PM (IST) | Venue- Partizan Stadium
Head-coach, Savo Milosevic could bring in a few changes to the lineup post his side’s defeat to Mladost Lucani in the domestic league. Former Liverpool player, Lazar Markovic remains a long-term absentee and should be back until the new year. With that being said, Stevanovic should start in goal, while Ostojic, Miletic, Urosevic and Pavlovic comprise the back four. Natsco, Tosic, Scekic and Zdjelar could come in at midfield. Whereas, Asano and Umar Sadiq lead the attack.
Paul Pogba’s ankle injury makes him sit out this game as well, while Nemanja Matic and Luke Shaw have been sent to the Dubai for recovery. Jesse Lingard and Diego Dalot are doubtful for the Thursday night fixture as well.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would also look to make some changes after the Liverpool game. Sergio Romero will keep between the sticks, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Marcus Rojo and Brand Williams form the defence. Fred and McTominay should suit central midfield. Whereas Juan Mata and Angel Gomes could be brought in to create chances. Anthony Martial could come in place of Marcus Rashford to lead the attack.
Partizan Belgrade- Stevanovic; Ostojic, Miletic, Urosevic, Pavlovic; Natsco, Tosic, Scekic, Zdjelar; Asano, Sadiq.
Manchester United- De Gea; Young, Rojo, Lindelof, Wan-Bissaka; McTominay, Fred, Pereira; Mata, Greenwood, Martial
Manchester United has kept three consecutive clean sheets in the UEFA Europa League.
United has yet to win an away game in all competitions since March 2019.
Umar Sadiq can prove to be lethal in attack for Partizan Belgrade. The Nigerian U-23 international has scored eight goals in 17 appearances across all competitions which also makes him the top scorer for his side.
Anthony Martial at centre-forward could bring in the decisiveness in front of goal after being sidelined for more than a month. Martial has two goals and an assist in four appearances so far.
