Thursday night is an interruption for some, as the Europa League is far smaller than the Champions League, but a means of regrouping for others such as Manchester United, who are seeking to reach the last 32 against Feyenoord.

Manchester United will go all out for a win against Feyenoord as they attempt to keep their campaign on the rails.

United’s form has been indifferent this season, but Jose Mourinho knows that a win would go a long way in helping them secure passage to the knockout rounds, as only a point separates the top three in Group A.

Forgotten man Henrikh Mkhitaryan could make a rare start for United after Mourinho included him in the squad. Luke Shaw may also be in line for his first appearance since the game against Swansea, but Eric Bailly (knee) and Chris Smalling (toe) are still out.

Elsewhere, Southampton play Sparta Praque, Schalke 04 face a Nice side without striker Mario Balotelli, who pulled a calf muscle in training.

Four teams are through to the next round, Zenit Saint Petersburg from Group D, Ajax from Group G, Shakhtar Donetsk in Group H and Schalke, who are yet to drop a point in Group I.
