Manchester United forward Memphis Depay faces his former team PSV

It’s a big game for…

Hector Moreno: The centre-back was accused of being too aggressive in the tackle which saw Luke Shaw suffer a horrendous injury at the Philips Stadion as the visitors succumbed to a loss. Moreno was not reprimanded for the challenge, however it is likely that he will have to contend with a vociferous welcome from the United faithful.

Best stat…

50: Memphis Depay scored a half-century in 124 appearances for PSV.

Remember when…

Before becoming a Chelsea flop, Mateja Kežman was a prolific goalscorer for PSV. When The Dutch team beat United 3-1 in 2000, the Serbian striker confirmed victory by jinking past Mikaël Silvestre before hammering the ball into the ceiling of the net.

Player to watch…

Jesse Lingard: After several spells out on loan, the young midfielder is enjoying a rich vein of form for United this season. Still a raw talent, he earned a first England call-up despite not picking up a cap. He will now be keen to score his first Champions League goal.
