Rubén Martínez appears to be the keeper of choice for Anderlecht in the Europa League.

Andy Najar is a major doubt after missing the last few weeks with a hamstring issue.

Manchester United will be without numerous first team regulars again, including the likes of Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and Chris Smalling.

David de Gea is unlikely to be risked due to a hip injury, meaning Sergio Romero will start in goal.
