Manchester United confirm Erik ten Hag XI to face Copenhagen (Champions League)



| Last Updated:


Erik ten Hag is starting Rasmus Højlund against his former club as Manchester United travel to face Copenhagen in the Champions League group stage.

Manchester United and FC Copenhagen sit third and fourth respectively in Champions League Group A, and both teams need a win in order to keep their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages alive.

United have lost two of their opening three fixtures in the competition while Copenhagen are yet to register a win, with United’s only victory coming against the same opposition a fortnight ago as Harry Maguire nodded in the winning goal.

Andrè Onana made a last-gasp penalty save in the reverse fixture to secure victory and is starting again tonight, with Alejandro Garnacho on the left wing.

The full line-ups have been confirmed below.
