Our confirmed MUFC XI for the Champions League home game vs Galatasaray is now in…
Manchester united already find themselves in must-win territory in the Champions League. It’s only matchday two. Galatasaray visit Old Trafford with the Red Devils absolutely desperate to put three points on the board, while also building some confidence.
Make no mistake about it, this will not be an easy game. The Turkish side will come here, supported by their passionate fans, to upset the applecart and look to place themselves in a commanding position in the Champions League race.
Many expected changes for this one, though with Erik ten Hag looking to secure a vital win, I always felt like it’d be somewhat unlikely. Well, the team news is now in so let’s give you the full run down..

— Manchester United (@ManUtd) October 3, 2023
Andre Onana does keep his place in between the sticks, despite whispers suggesting Altay Bayindir could come into the squad.
Diogo Dalot remains the only fit right-back at the club so his inclusion was always a given. Sofyan Amrabat will continue to play as the makeshift left-back. In defence, Raphael Varane starts alongside Victor Lindelof.
Mason Mount has played well since returning following injury so it makes sense that he’s involved yet again here. Casemiro starts in the midfield as per usual, with Bruno Fernandes completing the trio.
Rasmus Hojlund is preferred to Anthony Martial up top, with Marcus Rashford also keeping his place in the side. Hannibal looks as though he’ll play off that right-flank, bringing energy and enthusiasm.
