Juan Mata helps Manchester United to Europa League victory over Rostov

Juan Mata helps Manchester United to Europa League victory over Rostov

Mourinho insisted the players would be ready for a third game in eight days despite the quick turnaround and fielded a strong line-up, boasting four changes from Monday's Emirates FA Cup defeat at Chelsea.

Rostov's talismanic Iranian striker Sardar Azmoun who was linked with a deadline day move to United rivals Liverpool, could be backed to hit the target for the Russian side at odds of (5.06) on Thursday night.

Centre-back Eric Bailly is also available again after missing the first leg through suspension.

Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial are again sidelined, with Mourinho confirming top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic, now serving a domestic three-match ban, will be the only change to the squad that lost Monday's ill-tempered FA Cup clash at Chelsea.

Iraqi Forces Advance Deeper In Mosul, Commander Says
However, fight is expected to become tougher in the area due to narrow alleyways through which armoured vehicles can not pass. No more than 2,500 jihadists are believed remaining in Mosul and Tal Afar, according to a U.S. defense official.

The game will also be shown on BT Sport 2 and on the BT Sport app via our acclaimed enhanced video player.

Sergio Romero was forced to make a fine save to keep out Aleksandr Bukharov as the single goal proved enough on the night for Mourinho's men.

Genk and Gent drew 1-1 but the latter triumphed 6-3 on aggregate in a battle between the Belgian sides, while Roma beat Lyon 2-1 but lost their tie 4-2.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been in magnificent form this season, and he set up Henrikh Mkhitaryan's goal in Russian Federation last week. The match starts at 21:05 on 16 March 2017.

Truex rolls, Kyle Busch picks fight
In Busch's postrace interview, Busch said he "got dumped" by Logano and it appears Logano is due for some payback in the future. A closer look of the incident showed the Busch landed a punch on Logano before the crew members wrestled Busch to the ground.

After a frustrating 1:1 draw at Old Trafford against Bournemouth in the League on Saturday, Mourinho's men were looking for a win in Russian Federation, but following their arrival in Rostov, Jose immediatley complained to UEFA officials about the quality of the pitch at the Olimp-2 stadium. However, the two are likely to start against Rostov in the midweek European fixture. His manager had claimed he was the "best player on the pitch" but the Frenchman's doubters have been underwhelmed by several of Pogba's performances since his return to Old Trafford - a fact Mourinho attributed to "envy" on Wednesday.

Martial replaced Mkhitaryan in the 67th minute to add more pace to the attack, but United could not capitalise on the few chances they had.

The United centre-back admits it was a bitter pill to lose with Villarreal in last season's competition to Liverpool at the semi-final stage.

Paul Pogba has been quiet and question marks remain over his value and his role and I wouldn't be surprised if Mourinho was tempted to leave him out as a reminder of how much he needs to improve.
