Jose Mourinho has made eight changes to the team that lost in the Manchester derby as United prepare for a tricky away tie against Feyenoord.
Jose Mourinho had said earlier in the pre-match press conference that there will be some changes made to the team and had already confirmed some changes in the presser, which is reflected in the starting lineup at Rotterdam.
The match sees Smalling return and captain the side alongside Bailly with Darmian and Marcos Rojo earning a start on either side of the defence. The Portuguese manager has chosen to go for a double pivot of Schneiderlin and Herrera with the Spaniard expected to be the more adventurous of the two.

Attacking-wise, Pogba starts in his favoured number 10 role with Mata and Martial on either wings while Marcus Rashford starts up-front for the Red Devils as Jose Mourinho seems to have stuck to his 4-2-3-1 formation, albeit with a few tweaks, as was mentioned in The Hard Tackle’s preview of the game.

Feyenoord seem to have gone for almost an exact eleven as their probable lineup that The Hard Tackle had mentioned with the trio of Kuyt, El Ahmadi and Vilhena in the middle while Berghuis, Toornstra and Jorgensen provide the attacking options in a 4-3-3 formation.
