JOSE MOURINHO HAS handed starts to Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Wayne Rooney and Luke Shaw for the Europa League meeting with Feyenoord on Thursday night.

After barely seeing first-team action since moving to Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund, the Armenia international will have the chance to shine in a must-win European match.

Mkhitaryan has made just five appearances for United in his first three months at the club, starting only one of those games, but joins Rooney and Juan Mata in supporting lone striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic against the Dutch club.

Shaw also starts on the left side of defence in a strong United team, who are desperate to grab a place in the Europa League knockout stages with just two games remaining.

And Argentina No. 1 Sergio Romero earns a rare appearance replacing David de Gea between the posts, while Michael Carrick and Paul Pogba anchor the midfield.
