How to watch Manchester United vs. FC Rostov

Jose Mourinho accused Paul Pogba's critics of being blinded by envy as the Manchester United manager launched a staunch defence of the world's most expensive player.

But while it is unclear whether Rooney or Martial will feature on Thursday, Ibrahimovic and Herrera will both be at Mourinho's disposal as their suspensions only apply to domestic matches.

Uefa had deemed the pitch playable for the Europa League game, but the Russian Premier League say they have different regulations in place.

"I think we just have to stick to our plan". Mourinho elected to play a 3-5-2 formation, and although his side surrendered a lead on the night, a draw was a good result against a team that had beaten Bayern Munich and thrashed Ajax in Russian Federation this season. Many United fans remain happy with the appointment of Mourinho but have they gone backwards since he took over last summer? Vladimir Granat is also expected to miss the match thanks to a broken collarbone. Firstly, because he extolled Pogba's virtues to anyone who would listen in the wake of that FA Cup defeat.

Jose Mourinho: "It's [Ibrahimovic's return] a big boost, but we never cry about who is and who isn't [out]".

Mourinho's men opened Thursday's assault in the ascendancy and came within inches of finding a lead when Zlatan Ibrahimovic pounced after Rojo's header from a corner was finely saved. So now we have him, next match we don't and we always think positive: "when somebody isn't, another one is".

Kick off is at 22:05.

And they will surely have been given extra encouragement by the state of their opponents' substitutes bench for the return leg at Old Trafford. Here's all the info you need about the ground. If United were to win every game to the end of the season they could even be within a chance of winning the league, but the reality is their form has been too inconsistent, hence why they've been outside the top four for so long.

Manchester United's season has been filled with ups and downs so far.

United did just about enough to reach the quarter-finals against a poor Rostov side, by virtue of Juan Mata's continued propensity to break the deadlock in tense home games.

Rostov have lost only three of their last 14 games in European competition (including qualifiers W4 D7).
