David De Gea is surprisingly  picked in goal ahead of Sergio Romero, who is usually rotated for the Europa League games.

Solskjaer’s squad selection evidences how threadbare this United squad is, but it is still exciting to see a host of academy players starting against the Eredivisie side.

Tonight is also a great chance for Juan Mata, one of the more senior players in the squad who has to step up and take his opportunity in an attacking midfield role.
