Manchester United have travelled to Turkey to play Turkish Champions Bursaspor in the Champions League tonight. Bursaspor have lost every match of the group stage so far, the last being a 1-0 loss to Man United at Old Trafford.

Man United are yet to lose a game this season, in all competitions. A win tomorrow will take them to 10 points, which would leave them onto the verge of qualification.

Bursaspor may have struggled in Europe this season but in the league, it is a different story. They currently sit at the top of the league after a 1-1 draw with Fenerbahce at the Bursa Ataturk Stadium on Friday.

Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs, Michael Owen and Antonio Valencia are all missing due to injury. Darron Gibson, Anderson, Federico Macheda and Darron Gibson all didn’t travel due to injury, nor did Rio Ferdinand, who is being rested.

The 20-man Man United squad is: Van der Sar, Amos, Kuszczak; Evra, Brown, Vidic, Smalling, Rafael, Fabio, O'Shea; Eikrem, Scholes, Obertan, Bebe, Fletcher, Carrick, Park, Nani; Berbatov and Hernandez.

The home side will be with Ali Tandogan and Milan Stepanov, who both picked up injuries at Old Trafford a few weeks back. Federico Insua will also be available after recovering from a hamstring injury, which he picked up against Fenerbahce on Friday.
