Edinson Cavani makes his first start for Manchester United while Donny van de Beek replaces Nemanja Matic as Manchester United prepare to face Istanbul Basaksehir.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made just two changes to the side that started in the 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League this past weekend as Manchester United get set to lock horns with Istanbul Basaksehir in the UEFA Champions League.

There are no shuffles in goal, where David de Gea continues to get the nod over Dean Henderson. The four-man defensive line remains unchanged as well, with Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire pairing up at the heart of the Manchester United defence while Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Alex Telles continue as the two full-backs.

The first change comes in midfield, where Donny van de Beek has come in for Nemanja Matic. Dutch international van de Beek will partner Fred in the double pivot, with Bruno Fernandes being the centrally advanced midfielder for Manchester United yet again.

The attack seems to have a ferocious look, on paper, with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial being joined by Edinson Cavani. It will be interesting to see who is deployed on the right-wing, with Cavani, on full debut for Manchester United, likely to lead the line against Istanbul Basaksehir.

Manchester United Starting Lineup: de Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles, Fred, van de Beek, Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Martial, Cavani
