  • End of 2nd Half
90+3' 

Nothing comes of it though and that's the full-time whistle. What a result for Feyenoord and they thoroughly deserved it for the way they played.

90+3'  

Late corner here. De Gea is up...

90+2' 

Wonderful save from Brad Jones. Ibrahimovic dismisses Memphis and takes the free-kick himself and he fires it low under the wall. Jones reacts quick enough and crucially he holds it, with United players ready to pounce on a loose ball.

  • Bart Nieuwkoop

We've got a free-kick to United but first a change for Feyenoord. Off goes the impressive Karsdorp on comes Bart Nieuwkoop.

88' 

United are pushing hard now but Memphis over hits a free-kick and it drifts harmlessly out of play. Much to the delight of the Feyenoord crowd.

86' 

Off he goes!

What that celebration says is 'Everyone focus on my hair!'

84' 

Bilal is done with bullying Marcos Rojo. He's moved over to take a crack at Darmian. It takes the Italian and Memphis to stop him in his tracks.

United have thrown forward Chris Smalling. He once scored four goals in a league season you know.

83' 

Right we've probably got around ten minutes left and a reminder that if United lose it'll be the first time in their history they've lost four European away games in a row.

GOAL FEYENOORD 1-0 TONNY VILHENA

HE OF THE BLONDE AFRO HAS SCORED!

Once again Bilal gets down Rojo's side and this time he passes, playing a lovely ball over the top to Jorgensen, who might be offside. The striker pulls the ball back across the box and Vilhena arrives late to calmly slot past De Gea. Well deserved goal.

78' 

Well.

Memphis picks the ball up and it's just hopeless. Completely and utterly hopeless. When things aren't going for you...

77' 

Terrific tackle from Van der Heijden near the corner flag stops Pogba in his tracks and wins the goal-kick as it came off the Frenchman.

75'  

Another foul from Van der Heijden, who is booked. We're up to 17 fouls for Feyenoord now. Ibrahimovic gets on the end of Young's free-kick but it comes off him and goes over.

74' 

Kuyt ignores Bilal's earlier selfishness to feed the winger over the top. He cuts back inside onto his left foot and once again elects for the shot rather than the poss. De Gea is troubled but doesn't have to make a save as it goes wide.

71' 

Bilal looks more than happy to run at players but he elects to do that when the pass to Kuyt was a better option after a shot from Jorgensen was blocked.

Stat.

Time for some Mourinho maths. If you take away one Marcus Rashford but add one Zlatan Ibrahimovic what do you get. The answer appears to be an invigorated attack as United start to push forward with more purpose.

Brace yourself. A triple Jose sub is on its way.

60' 

I tell you what Tonny Vilhena's hair is fantastic, it's like a homage to Marouane Fellaini. Speaking of Vilhena he's just dragged a shot wide after Rojo gave the ball away.

WE'VE HAD A SHOT!

I know we had some shots in the first-half but El Ahmadi has had a go from distance. It goes narrowly wide but David De Gea looked bored waving it through.

54'  

Mourinho's never afraid to make changes, he showed that in the derby, and he might be tempted to make a change here. The life has been sucked out of this game.

51' 

Pogba is pushing forward but he gets frustrated and ends up sending a shot over the bar. Encouraging for United though if he's going to play alongside Rashford.

47' 

No changes from either side and no real change in the football we're seeing either. Bodes well.

  • 2nd Half
45' 

We're back underway for the second-half.

 

Wonder what Jose's saying to his players at half-time, he certainly was in a hurry to get off the field.

  • End of 1st Half
45' 

And that's half-time. Mourinho jogs off to his changing room and I'm not surprised, United have been poor and something has to change.

45' 

Eurosport columnist Paul Parker raises a good point. If Mata isn't going to defend he needs to be right up alongside Rashford.

43' 

Feyenoord are just playing keep ball on the edge of the United box. Credit where it's due to El Ahmadi, he's proving to be a very important link for the Dutch side in the middle of the park.

40' 

Lovely, patient build-up from Feyenoord and once again Kongolo finds space on the left. He comes inside past Darmian and plays it all the way across the box but the ball is bobbling and the eventual shot from Jens Toornstra goes over the bar.

Kongolo keeps finding space, it feels like Mata needs to be tracking him more.

39' 

Feyenoord get three corners in a row and the noise when they get these set-pieces is sensational. The attendance is reduced tonight but the atmosphere hasn't been blunted at all.

36' 

This is a bit of a strange game. Both teams are evidently keen to catch each other on the counter. Which makes it a bit odd to watch. The fact that the referee is trigger happy with his whistle doesn't help either.

32' 

Eric Botteghin isn't afraid of putting his foot in. He gives away another free-kick for fouling Rashford. He gets himself up and makes a strong, and fair, challenge on the striker after United take it quickly.

30' 

Now it's Berghuis' turn to give away a foul as he trips Martial who was in the middle of a wonderful roulette turn.

28' 

Rojo fouls Berghuis and gives away a free-kick which Feyenoord try to take quickly twice and both times they are denied by the referee. When they take it long it goes straight out of play.

27' 

Rashford is finding space here but when United do break with him there's not a lot of options for him up front.

24' 

MANCHESTER UNITED CHANCE

Rashford links up well with Matteo Darmian down the right and the Italian gets his cross in. Martial's touch to set himself is good and his shot is just wide.

More nice build-up from Feyenoord and Kongolo gets a cross in from the left but Berghuis is adjudged to have fouled Rojo.

18' 

Nice picture of Marcus Rashford in action.

17' 

Who remembers Karim El Ahmadi? His time at Aston Villa brought a lot of fouls and he's started early tonight, taking out Ander Herrera in a dangerous position. Pogba's free-kick is easily caught by Brad Jones.

15' 

Bailly is back on and he will continue.

14' 

Eric Bailly is down at the moment after a challenge with Terence Kongolo. He seems in some pain, referee is telling the physios to get him off the pitch whilst Fosu-Mensah is warming up.

12' 

Nicolai Jorgensen, the Feyenoord forward is a very big chap. Wikipedia informs me that he is 6"3 but it seems like more the way he's dominating in the air early on.

11' 

SHOT!

We have our first shot and it's from Steven Berghuis, who is on loan from Watford as he looks to try and curl one on his left foot. It's easy for De Gea to catch though.

10' 

Feyenoord have had their best spell of the game so far, breaking down the left and forcing a corner. However it ultimately came to nothing.

9' 

Glorious evening for some football.

A nice move for United ends with Pogba firing the ball into Rashford's feet, he tries to turn and provide a lay-off but the ball is easily intercepted.

4' 

Already you can see how United's approach will be different with Marcus Rashford in the side. United's midfielders are already looking to use the pace of both he and Anthony Martial.

2' 

It definitely looks as if Paul Pogba is going to be pushing forward, in the left of the three like he did at Juventus. If you're going to turn it on Paul now may not be the worst time to get going.

AND WE'RE UNDER WAY!

17:57 

We're a few minutes away from kick-off now, Jose's doing some clapping in the tunnel to get his players going.

17:50 

GOOD OMEN?

The signs are good for Manchester United as we near kick-off time, they have played Feyenoord twice before, in the group stage of the 1997-98 Champions League. They won both matches.

17:40 

PREDICTION TIME

Right we've got around 20 minutes until kick-off. I've seen a couple of predictions for United so far but what does everyone else think?

17:30 

AND HERE'S PART TWO

I can tell how excited you all are.

This one isn't so good for United fans as they're currently on their worst record away from home in Europe in the history of the club. One more defeat would set a new, unwanted record.

17:25 

WHO WANTS SOME TWO-PART MANCHESTER UNITED STATS NEWS?

The first part of this stat bonanza is great news for Manchester United fans, as it's a timely reminder that the last time Mourinho was in this competition, with Porto, he won it.

17:15 
Feyenoord

FEYENOORD TEAM NEWS:

There's some familiar names in the Feyenoord line-up with former Liverpool midfielder Dirk Kuyt captaining the side and starting in the centre of midfield. Meanwhile another former Red, Brad Jones, is in between the sticks tonight.

17:05 
Manchester United

MANCHESTER UNITED TEAM NEWS:

Manager Jose Mourinho makes eight changes from the Manchester derby, a fairly clear sign of where his priorities lie, but the big news is that Paul Pogba moves into the No.10 role with Marcus Rashford getting his first start of the season.

Matteo Darmian, Marcos Rojo, Morgan Schneiderlin and Ander Herrera all get rare starts whilst Chris Smalling is the captain for the evening.

There's still no start for Memphis though, he's on the bench with Timothy Fosu-Mensah.
