Sergio Romero comes in for David de Gea while Jesse Lingard starts as Manchester United get set to take on Club Brugge in the UEFA Europa League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made six changes to the side that started in the 2-0 Premier League win over Chelsea earlier this week as Manchester United prepare to lock horns with Club Brugge in the UEFA Europa League Round of 32 first leg.

The first shuffle comes in defence, as Sergio Romero replaces David de Gea, as has been customary in the Europa League. In defence, there are a couple of changes, with Diogo Dalot coming in for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, while Victor Lindelof replaces Eric Bailly. Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams keep their places.

Fred has been given a bit of a breather, with Andreas Pereira starting in the his compatriot’s stead. Pereira accompanies Nemanja Matic in the middle of the park. Meanwhile, Bruno Fernandes has to wait for his Europa League debut in Manchester United colours, with Jesse Lingard replacing him.

Lingard starts in the three-pronged attack, where he has Juan Mata and Anthony Martial for company. That means Odion Ighalo still does not get his full debut for Manchester United, with Martial leading the line against Brugge.

Chelsea Starting Lineup: Romero, Dalot, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Williams, Mata, Matic, Pereira, Lingard, Martial
