Manchester United will hope for a more energetic display than their Europa League opener when they face AZ Alkmaar.


The Red Devils kicked off with a 1-0 win over Astana as young gun Mason Greenwood bagged his first senior goal for the club.

United dominated possession and limited Astana to just three shots – none on target – during the game, but lacked a cutting-edge of their own and will be determined to find the net with greater ruthlessness.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men haven’t scored more than one goal in a game since their opening day 4-0 hammering of Crystal Palace.

AZ Alkmaar are going along nicely in the Eredivisie with four wins in a row.

They have only conceded three goals in their opening eight fixtures and will be an awkward prospect for Solskjaer to negotiate. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch the AZ Alkmaar v Man Utd game on TV and online.
