Jan Breydel Stadium
They're top of their domestic league and have dropped down from CL where they finished 3rd behind PSG & Real Madrid ahead of Galatasary but they got a 2-2 draw away to Madrid and only lost 1-0 away to PSG so they've obviously got something about them. They didn't actually win a group game they basically got through by drawing home and away to Galatasary and getting that draw with Madrid.I’ve not watched club Brugge at all so I don’t know how they play would a hold up striker benefit? Or quick counter attack? Personally I think to ease him in he could play a half tomorow and also play maybe the second half Sunday if we needed to bring him on.
There no pushovers then and obviously know how to win will make for a good game , would like to see a little more of inghalo in this game .They're top of their domestic league and have dropped down from CL where they finished 3rd behind PSG & Real Madrid ahead of Galatasary but they got a 2-2 draw away to Madrid and only lost 1-0 away to PSG so they've obviously got something about them.

Mignolet plays in goal for them but that's all I've got on them my guess is they'll be quite a young team can't see them being as good as the Anderlecht team we played 2 years ago in Europa.
Definitely think we should rotate , I hope we see Dalot tooI would say to rest some players but we really don’t have many options. Think I’d still make a few changes as these players are going to be dying on their feet shortly. Keep it tight in the first leg and win it at Old Trafford next week. The league games are more important at the moment and we've got 3 Thursday fixtures in a row. As thin as the squad is we have to rotate.
Dalot Bailly Lindelof Shaw
Lingard Bruno James
Greenwood and Jones haven’t travelled with the squad.
United's travelling squad as spotted by photographers
David de Gea, Sergio Romero, Nathan Bishop; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Diogo Dalot, Harry Maguire, Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof, Luke Shaw, Brandon Williams; Nemanja Matic, Fred, Andreas Pereira, Bruno Fernandes, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard; Daniel James, Odion Ighalo, Anthony Martial
Poor result. Poor quality and could have put the tie to bed even with the players played.So is that a good result? I guess away from home with an away goal is always positive?
That's what frustrates me about Martial, so much ability, just wish he showed it more often. I believe he is having his second best season season in terms of goal scoring though, so hopefully more to come.Martial can really play when he wants to. That goal was fantastic. He read the situation quickly and pounced, held off his marker, waited for the keeper to over commit, and tucked it away.
Yep Pereira was okay but it was like we were playing with 9 players - Dalot and Lingard’s performance were beyond dire.It confirmed to me what we already know. Dalot, Pereira, lingard, not good enough. Mata and lindelof no more than squad players.
