Follow the latest squad news and match updates as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Man Utd continue their Champions League campaign

Manchester United resumes their Champions League campaign in Turkey tonight, as they face Istanbul Basaksehir (5 Kick-off at 55h)

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have beaten Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig so far in their squad and three more points tonight would bring them closer to qualifying Solskjaer will be keen to see excellent European form of his team, which contrasts with his national performances, continue tonight

Dean Henderson makes his Champions League debut, while there are also starts for Donny van de Beek and Axel Tuanzebe Tuanzebe started Matchday 1 for United against PSG and impressed in his debut appearance in 10 months, expertly chaining players like Kylian Mbappe and Neymar

Owen Hargreaves, Robin van Persie and Paul Scholes are all part of BT Sport’s expert squad tonight

There is never a shortage of former United players ready to analyze their former squad these days

Starting Van de Beek makes a lot of sense, given that Fernandes is untouchable as 10 (for now), despite his declining level of performance United have prepared for Paul Pogba’s likely departure for the year next by signing two attacking midfielders to Fernandes and Van de Beek, so it is high time to start them in the same XI

Van de Beek is adept at playing deeper, so there’s no reason he can’t complete Fernandes in this midfield troika

It’s a bit of a surprise that Solskjaer included Rashford alongside Martial in his top three, with Mata in the other spot, but you think the two might be cheering against this Istanbul defense Basaksehir, which includes Martin Skrtel in the center back

The 35-year-old wasn’t particularly quick in his prime, so United’s pace could be a threat Skrtel’s partner is Alexandru Epureanu, a 34-year-old relative spring chicken

If United supporters were present at Fatih Terim Stadium, they might have paid tribute to Demba Ba, as they did at Old Trafford against Liverpool in December 2014:

Ba is widely credited with preventing what would have been a monumental Liverpool title triumph (and denying Gerrard a league-winning medal) six and a half years ago with his Kop strike

Tonight reiterates how United have made the squad stronger, rather than the first squad this summer Their bench XI could be: De Gea, Fosu-Mensah, Lindelof, Mengi, Williams, Fred, McTominay, Pogba, James, Greenwood , Cavani (apologies, Odion Ighalo) The cavalry waits, if necessary, and that swayed United’s previous European relations

From this squad, it looks like Van de Beek will finally have his chance in one of the deepest midfield roles, playing alongside an ideal foil in Matic, who can do much of the defensive week

Fred, McTominay, Matic and Pogba all started in those roles ahead of the Dutchman this season, but United have been lacking in creativity lately and Van de Beek deserves the chance to show that he can be the perfect bond with Fernandes and the before three, while offering more protection than Pogba did in the first weeks of the season

Solskjaer made an appropriate number of changes while making sure United are strong enough to win I think I went for 10 out of the 11 he started tonight

Henderson, Tuanzebe, Van de Beek and Mata deserved to start and Martial would always come back Matic’s recall is also a good idea

It’s a big compliment to Victor Lindelof that he’s the rested center-back tonight Yes, Maguire started in meaningless matches when he should have taken a break, but Lindelof’s omission in the tonight’s game seems to be more a reflection of his recent return to form

United XI: Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Tuanzebe, Maguire, Shaw, Matic, Van de Beek, Mata, Fernandes, Rashford, Martial

Looking briefly beyond tonight, if you were to try and assume the XI for Everton, you’d think the bottom five will be unchanged from Arsenal with a forward four from Fernandes, Rashford, Greenwood and Martial Although United played a diamond at Everton in March

Midfielder gripped in uncertainty after Arsenal scolded United Few United fans would want Pogba in the squad at the moment and Matic could be a stable option if Van de Beek performs tonight , this late start to the championship could come to Goodison

United’s success in this competition so far this season has given Solskjaer leeway to make changes in Istanbul, while the rule allowing five subs also gives him the freedom to make changes if the match does not go as planned but after the loss to Arsenal on Sunday Solskjaer cannot afford to take too many risks, another setback will hurt confidence and put pressure on Saturday’s trip to Goodison

The two-week hiatus for the internationals still means the narrative is framed around the previous game and if United head into that period without having managed to beat Everton then the knives could be at Solskjaer A win tonight will give them at least some momentum ahead of the trip to Merseyside

Just a reminder that with a 555pm kick-off tonight (UK time), that means we’ll be hearing from the team around 4:40 a.m.

We will of course bring you this news on this blog live when it comes out

Dean Henderson expects to start tonight, although this is not a confirmation that he will start It would be a surprise if there weren’t at least five changes from Sunday’s loss, reckoning given the listless performance and early 1230pm kick-off at Everton on Saturday,

Axel Tuanzebe, Donny van de Beek and Juan Mata are competing for recalls, as is Anthony Martial after serving the last game of his national suspension

Pogba could fall on the bench tonight, after playing poorly in the 1-0 loss to Arsenal

Trips to Istanbul once brought a considerable dose of fear for the English teams and United know this better than anyone, having experienced the ‘Welcome to Hell’ banner at the Ali Sami Yen stadium in Galatasary and the feverish atmosphere that has followed in 1993 Empty stadiums take away the advantage, but Istanbul’s Basaksehir are about as far removed from their city cousins ​​as they can get

Their tiny house is in a neighborhood with a high student population, and as a fairly new club, they have a small fan base, averaging just 4,000 at most games and with a huge fan base. ‘students who see a trip to Fatih Terim Stadium as a day rather than an opportunity to intimidate visitors, even a packed house here wouldn’t compare to the old days in Galatasaray and Besiktas

Frighteningly, the last time United played in Istanbul was four years ago yesterday when America counted its votes in a presidential election United lost 2-1 to Fenerbahce and Mourinho came off afterwards:

« We started the game sleepy I know we have a problem because it is difficult to play away without two good center-backs We play with two left-backs as center-backs (Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo) »
