Confirmed line-ups: Omonia vs Manchester United (Europa League)

Cristiano Ronaldo and Casemiro start for Manchester United in their Europa League clash against Omonia, with Erik ten Hag picking a strong team for the encounter.

The former Real Madrid pair have been left on the bench during Premier League duty in recent weeks, but have been chosen to help move United closer to qualification from the group.

After losing to Real Sociedad in the opening gameweek, Ten Hag's men turned things around against FC Sheriff with a 2-0 victory.

The Reds have experienced Europa League heartbreak in recent times under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer where the team lost the final of the competition on penalties.

Whilst they would prefer to be fighting in the Champions League, it still appears that there is unfinished business in the competition they're currently in.

Ten Hag explained before the encounter that the Reds aim to come out on top in every fixture, and that he won't be taking anything easy on Thursday night.

"We need to win, and we need two wins but start with one. Always go from game to game.

"We want to win this group and we want to win every game. That is the standard of Manchester United."

Speaking on the opponent, he said: “In Europe, it’s always a different approach, but it’s also always difficult. I played before there, in the stadium against an opponent so the ambience, we have to be ready for that.

"We have to be ready for a team that is well motivated. They play on the front foot.

"For them, it is the game of their life, so we have to be ready to face that and to play our game and that is one of the lessons from Sunday.”

That has been matched by the starting line-up of the Reds, with Ten Hag lining up strongly:
