- Man Utd will face FC Copenhagen in the Champions League
- Red Devils won 1-0 against the Danes on reverse fixture
- Erik ten Hag is looking for another victory after defeating Fulham
Despite starting their European campaign with two losses, Manchester United knows that a win on Wednesday will likely place them in second position in the standings at the end of this month’s matchday.
Erik ten Haag’s side won the rematch against the Danes – almost – at Old Trafford. The game was defined in the end by Andre Onana saving a late penalty.
United has plenty of room for improvement, but they will look to build momentum after a narrow Premier League victory over Fulham last weekend.

Andre Onana, GK –His United Career seems to have picked up after some rocky games during August and September. It seems that the penalty save against Copenhagen was what sparked his career.
Aaron Wan Bissaka, RB –Actually had a positive impact off the bench at Newcastle when he returned from injury and played all 90 minutes of Fulham’s match.
Raphael Varane: The Frenchman has been a curious character in recent weeks. He is a regular starter for Champions League, but on the bench during the Premier League.
Harry Maguire, CB – If not for the injuries of others, Harry Maguire might be still warming the bench. Last time, he was outstanding against Copenhagen.
LB Sergio ReguilonCould replace Diogo dalot who had a poor performance against Newcastle, but a good showing against Fulham.
Sofyan amrabat, CM –Without Casemiro because of his injury, it is up to the loaned midfielder to be the only enforcer.
Scott McTominay, CM – The Scotland International has been reasserting himself in the starting lineup since his heroics at Brentford.
Ten Hag defends the costly winger this month. He insists he is the “right” player for the club despite difficult circumstances.
AM, Bruno Fernandes It was his captaincy that led to him scoring the late goal against Fulham. United needs more performances like that.
LM Alejandro Garnacho –The fitness of Marcus Rashford is still in doubt, so the young Argentine could get another opportunity to play on the left.
ST. Rasmus Hojlund The striker is still waiting to score his first Premier League goal but he has three goals in three games in the Champions League. He will face off against the former team.
