Man United play Barcelona in the Europa League on Thursday and our reporters have shared their preferred starting line-ups…

Manchester United take on Barcelona in the first leg of the Europa League play-off on Thursday evening.

United failed to win their Europa League group and Barcelona finished third in their Champions League group earlier this season, which means the two clubs will now meet in a play-off round over two legs at Camp Nou and Old Trafford.

Erik ten Hag’s side head into the clash after a 2-0 victory against Leeds, but Barcelona promise to be tricky opposition to overcome, as they have only conceded seven goals in La Liga, which is the fewest of any team in Europe’s top five leagues.
