Manchester United will be visiting Fenerbahce next to continue their Europa League campaign. Their crisis in the Premier League, however, continues with another goalless draw at Burnley. Things went from bad to worse, when their manager Mourinho was sent off from the touchline after his opinion off camera on referee Mark Clattenburg’s decision.
United will look to amend for their mistakes once again in the midweek against Fenerbahce, where they would like to replicate their performance against the Turkish outfit from earlier this season. They had a thumping 4-1 win in the reverse fixture last month.
United are currently second in the group, level on points with leaders Feyenoord. While United are struggling to win at the moment, Fenerbahce have gone unbeaten in their last eight of their last nine matches in all competitions. Hence, it is quite a possibility that United might draw another blank.
Mourinho will be having grave problems choosing his back line as he will be without Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly, James Wilson and Phil Jones for the trip to Turkey. However, the central defence has been occupied by Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind and they were quite disciplined against Burnley in the weekend.
With Luke Shaw’s return, United won’t feel the void of the left back left by Blind. Matteo Darmian did well in the right back position and with Antonio Valencia absent, he is expected to continue to take his place in that position.
