Manchester United are seeking revenge over Istanbul Basaksehir after the Turkish side produced a shock result in their reverse fixture at the start of the month.

Solskjaer's men still sit top of Group H, but one result could flip everything with just three points separating all four teams. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Man Utd v Istanbul Basaksehir on TV and online.

Man Utd v Istanbul Basaksehir team news

Man Utd: Dean Henderson is set to start in place of David De Gea, as he did during the reverse fixture.

Paul Pogba and Mason Greenwood are back in contention to start, while Donny van de Beek, Edinson Cavani and Scott McTominay could all come into the starting XI.

Istanbul Basaksehir: Enzo Crivelli and Junior Caicara will both miss out due to injury. Former United right-back Rafael will replace the latter in defence.

Ex-Spurs midfielder Nacer Chadli is back in contention and could start, while Mehmet Topal is eligible to start despite being sent off at the weekend. His ban only applies to domestic games.

Our prediction: Man Utd v Istanbul Basaksehir

Solskjaer's team talk should write itself. The defeat in Istanbul should be motivation enough for United's stars to react with a big display.

A number of stars are back in contention, and almost all of them have a point to prove. Cavani will see this as an opportunity to stake a claim for more first-team action.

It may not be pretty, but in the end, the scoreline should fall nicely in United's favour.

Our prediction: Man Utd 3-1 Istanbul Basaksehir
