Manchester United are set to ring the changes for their Europa League clash against Zorya Luhansk on Thursday evening.

Jose Mourinho will have one eye on United’s crucial Premier League clash against Tottenham on Sunday so could start a number of fringe players.

Bastian Schweinsteiger, Eric Bailly and Anthony Martial could all start in the mid-week clash.

Bailly was named on the bench during United’s 1-1 draw against Everton on Sunday and has not featured for over a month since picking up an injury in the 4-0 Premier League defeat against Chelsea.

He could line up at centre-back while Martial takes up an attacking role. Schweinsteiger is likely to partner Michael Carrick in the centre of midfield.

Joining Martial, Mourinho may opt to leave out Zlatan Ibrahimovic and bring Marcus Rashford in as a centre-forward.

Jesse Lingard is likely to beat Memphis Depay to a starting position but the Dutchman should feature at some point.

Wayne Rooney could start in the number 10 role in place of Juan Mata and Sergio Romero is expected to replace David De Gea in goal.

Phil Jones could keep his place in defence alongside Bailly and Luke Shaw could be named at left-back.

Antonio Valencia should also retain his place in the full-back position.

In other Manchester United news, the club are preparing for a huge bid on this striker.
