Manchester United Fans Not Happy With Surprise Name On Team Sheet

Manchester United fans were desperate last season for a return to the Champions League. After winning the Europa League in May they got their wish but before kick off they're already annoyed.

After having a long standing relationship with the Champions League in the Fergie years, Manchester United have become far more familiar than they'd have liked with not being in the competition.

Last year was the second season in three that the Red Devils failed to qualify for Europe's elite club competition but winning the secondary competition gave them entry into this season's Champions League.

Tonight is the first time in nearly two years that fans at Old Trafford will hear the anthem before kick off when they play Swiss side Basel and before kick off a lot of them are bemused.

That's because Ashley Young has been included in the startling line up, something no one saw coming:

There had initially been rumours that Young would start ahead of Anthony Martial, which really annoyed United fans

However Martial being in the squad has at least tempered some of the anger over Young starting in defence, where Victor Lindelof makes his United debut after joining in the summer.

The last time the two teams faced off at Old Trafford Young scored a last minute equaliser in an incredible 3-3 draw in the Group Stages six years ago.
