Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named his Manchester United line-up to take on Istanbul Basksehir away from home in the UEFA Champions League group stages.
Dean Henderson, Axel Tuanzebe and Donny van de Beek all start which should please supporters.
The line-up is a strong one considering we have Everton in the league on Saturday, but the bench also consists of Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood and Odion Ighalo.
Man Utd XI: Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Tuanzebe, Maguire, Shaw; Matic, Van de Beek, Mata, Fernandes; Rashford, Martial.
Man Utd subs: De Gea, Fosu-Mensah, Lindelof, Mengi, Williams, Fred, James, McTominay, Pogba, Cavani, Greenwood, Ighalo.
Fans have expressed their views on the starting line-up via Twitter and most are happy with the announcement Van de Beek gets the nod.

Dean Henderson’s european debut, Axel Tuanzebe back in the line-up, Donny van de Beek in midfield, Anthony Martial up top. Other than Edinson Cavani not starting, I’m very happy with that team.

Do people understand now that Donny is a versatile player and more than capable of forming a partnership with Bruno @ItsYouJuan8 😉😉

So excited to see Donny Van De Beek start, he does well with Mata & Bruno we've seen that. Good to see Ole's gone with an attacking line-up with Rashford & Martial up front with these ballers.
Tuanzebe AWB to boss it at the back. We winning this good.👍 #UCL #MUFC

This is Tuanzebe’s second appearance of the season after he kept Kylian Mbappe and Neymar quiet in United’s 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain when the Reds kicked off their UEFA Champions League campaign.
Let’s hope there’s no need for excuses at full-time. This really should be a walk in the park for the team Solskjaer has named.
