Valencia lost their last Champions League game, 1-0 away at Juventus, before a 2-0 league defeat at Real Madrid. Michy Batshuayi scored the only goal of the game in a 1-0 Copa del Rey win at home to Eibar, however, before last weekend’s 1-1 draw with high-flying Sevilla – Moukhtar Diakhaby’s last-minute equaliser earning a point.
Manchester United have not lost since their Manchester derby defeat to City but they have drawn three of their five matches. A goalless draw with Crystal Palace was followed by Marouane Fellaini’s late winner against Young Boys, before back-to-back 2-2 draws against Southampton and Arsenal. Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera netted at Southampton, after United went 2-0 down early on, before Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard both scored equalisers in a 2-2 draw with Arsenal. Ashley Young, Juan Mata, Lukaku and Marcus Rashford were all on target in a 4-1 defeat of Fulham last weekend, however
Manchester United: David de Gea (GK); Diogo Dalot, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young; Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera; Marcus Rashford, Romelu Lukaku, Jesse Lingard.

My PlayerzPot XI:
Manchester United are the ones standing in the favourite as they claimed victory in the past two away games but Valencia is the one boosted with confidence.
Predicted Score: Valencia 2-1 Manchester United.
