Man United will be aiming to keep their fourth clean sheet in the Europa League as the team host Partizan Belgrade at Old Trafford on Thursday.

United have yet to concede a goal in this competition after three games but have only scored twice in a pair of 1-0 wins. The team has only won a game by a margin of more than one goal twice this season, having played 16 games across all competitions.

Prior to United’s last meeting with Partizan, they had been on a run of six games without a win in 90 minutes but managed a narrow victory away from home to spark a brief upturn in form.

Solskjaer will be hoping that this Europa League tie can have the same effect again and spark a run of positive results.

Head To Head

The clubs’ Matchday 3 encounter was their first since the 1965/66 European Cup semi-final, which Partizan won 2-1 on aggregate despite a 1-0 second-leg defeat in Manchester.

Possible Line Ups

Manchester United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Young; McTominay, Fred; James, Mata, Rashford; Martial

Partizan Belgrade: Stojkovic; Miletic, Ostojic, Pavlovic, Urosevic; Zdjelar, Natkho; Tosic, Soumah, Asano; Sadiq

Betting Tips

United should pick up an important win on home turf, but they have rarely blown the opposition away this season and they could be forced to grind out another 1-0 Europa League win by a Partizan side that kept them so impressively at bay in the reverse fixture.
