    ONE TO WATCH

    Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood has six goals in major UEFA European competition as a teenager (5 Europa League, 1 Champions League), the joint-most of any English teenager along with his teammate Marcus Rashford.

    He is also looking to become the third Englishman to score in his first two starts in the Champions League, after Rashford in 2017 and Daniel Sturridge in 2010.

    Greenwood starts from the bench tonight.

    GOOD EVENING!

    Welcome to the live blog for Basaksehir vs Manchester United.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men go into tonight’s Champions League fixture off the back of a disappointing defeat to Arsenal at Old Trafford.

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang handed the visitors all three points from the penalty spot in what was a highly contested game.

    However, when it comes to United’s current Champions League group, they sit top with two wins from two including a win away to PSG.

    Opponents Basaksehir sit rock bottom losing their opening two group games, putting them far behind the rest of the pack.

    Solskjaer could shake things up drastically team-wise.

    Donny van de Beek could start for United, he’s been pushing for a starting spot since he joined in the summer.

    Dean Henderson could be in line to start also.

    We will have the full team news shortly!
