UCL HIGHLIGHT: Man Utd Vs Barcelona 0- 1

Barcelona also show one alteration from their most recent match, that aforementioned victory over Atletico last weekend, as Semedo comes in for Roberto at right-back. Vidal was absent on Saturday because of suspension and was pushing for a recall today, likely in place of Arthur, but he has to settle for a place among the subs. Umtiti also continues to watch on from the bench, having lost his place to Lenglet during his recent injury lay-off, while Coutinho once again fills in for Dembele – back in the squad today – on the left of the front three.

Solskjaer makes just one change to the side that lost at Wolves last week by bringing in Rashford for the benched Lingard. Rashford sat out that Premier League match at Molineux with an ankle injury but he is deemed fit enough to return to the forward line today, partnering Lukaku in what appears to be a 3-5-2 formation, depending on where Dalot is fielded. McTominay is given a huge vote of confidence as he retains his place in central midfield, while Fred is also included. Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera, so often used in a midfield trio with Pogba under Solskjaer, both miss out through injury.

Barcelona subs: Samuel Umtiti, Arturo Vidal, Sergi Roberto, Jasper Cillessen, Ousmane Dembele, Malcom, Carles Alena.

BARCELONA (4-3-3): Marc-Andre ter Stegen; Nelson Semedo, Gerard Pique, Clement Lenglet, Jordi Alba; Arthur, Sergio Busquets, Ivan Rakitic; Lionel Messi (c), Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho.

Man United subs: Anthony Martial, Andreas Pereira, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Sergio Romero, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata.

MAN UNITED (3-5-2): David de Gea; Ashley Young (c), Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof; Diogo Dalot, Fred, Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw; Marcus Rashford, Romelu Lukaku.
