Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils are reeling from a Premier League defeat to Arsenal at the weekend, though they have beaten PSG (2-1) and RB Leipzig (5-0) to take control of Champions League Group H.
A win in Turkey this evening would leave United heavy favourites to qualify for the knockout stages, especially with Leipzig and PSG facing off in a double-header over matchdays 3 and 4.
Manchester United team news: Solskjaer has no new injury concerns to deal with, though Alex Telles is still unavailable. Edinson Cavani could be handed a full debut, but competition for places in attack is fierce.
Predicted lineup: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Tuenzebe, Maguire, Williams; Matic, Fred, Fernandes; Cavani, Martial, Rashford
