Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have made a perfect start in Group H, defeating Paris Saint-Germain before thrashing RB Leipzig. However, a 1-0 defeat by Arsenal last weekend has taken the momentum out of their sails, with United languishing in 15th in the Premier League table, having taken just seven points from their opening six games.
Turkish champions Istanbul Basaksehir should provide stern opposition, with a squad that includes a number of recognisable former Premier League players, including Rafael and Martin Skrtel. Follow all the action live below:
