(HD Video) Manchester United vs Sheriff 3-1 | Europa League

United, who won the reverse fixture in Moldova 2-0 last month, will qualify for the knockout stages of the competition with just a point. However, they must win the group to avoid a two-legged play-off round fixture in February and automatically qualify for the last-16 of the competition.

The Reds are currently second in the group and face current leaders Real Sociedad in their final game next week. United must win their last two matches to stand any chance of winning the group, especially when you consider Sociedad as strong favourites to beat Omonia Nicosia this evening.

United, though, will head into the contest with Sheriff brimming with confidence. Casemiro’s stoppage-time header against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to six matches.

Although United are expected to coast past Sheriff this evening, manager Erik ten Hag, just as he has done in the Europa League so far this season, is not expected to leave anything to chance. He wants to win the group and avoid a play-off clash with a Champions League third-placed team, meaning he is likely to name a strong starting line-up.

But how do United’s fans want the Reds to line-up this evening? MEN Sport has taken a close look at what they have voted for using our interactive widget.

Unsurprisingly, the supporters have voted for David de Gea to start in goal, with the Spaniard having been an ever-present figure so far this season. He has played every minute in the Europa League this term, keeping two clean sheets in his first four appearances.

In defence, the supporters want to see two changes made to the back-four that started against Chelsea, one of which is enforced. Raphael Varane faces a few weeks on the sidelines with a hamstring injury, meaning Victor Lindelof is poised to come in at centre-back.
