Dean Henderson is set to make his Champions League debut while Juan Mata and Donny van de Beek return as Manchester United prepare to face Istanbul Basaksehir.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made six changes to the side that started in the 1-0 defeat to Arsenal in the Premier League as Manchester United get set to lock horns with Istanbul Basaksehir in a UEFA Champions League Group H tie. The first shuffle comes in goal, where Dean Henderson replaces David de Gea to make his debut in the competition.

The solitary change in defence sees Axel Tuanzebe return. Tuanzebe starts in place of Victor Lindelof and will partner Harry Maguire at the heart of the Manchester United defence. Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw comprise the full-back pairing against Istanbul Basaksehir.

Up ahead in midfield, Manchester United seem to have reverted to a double pivot, with Donny van de Beek and Nemanja Matic coming in. Fred, Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba all drop out, while Bruno Fernandes reprises the no. 10 role ahead of van de Beek and Matic.

Juan Mata and Anthony Martial also return to the starting lineup, with Marcus Rashford completing the Manchester United attack. Mata and Rashford are likely to be the two wide men, with Martial leading the line against Istanbul Basaksehir.

Manchester United Starting Lineup: Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Tuanzebe, Maguire, Shaw, van de Beek, Matic, Mata, Bruno Fernandes, Rashford, Martial
