Manchester United, 4/11
While Americans celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday, the Europa League group stage will continue in Europe.
On Thursday, Manchester United will play host to Feyenoord in one of the highest profile games of the day.
Manchester United, which got their season off to a great start after much fanfare, has seen their success dwindle as of late. As of this moment, Manchester United sits in 6th place in the English Premier League, far behind the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool. Despite the signings of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba, Manchester United has not really been able to get off of the ground this season. Now, with their hopes of a EPL title and a Champions League spot slipping away for next season, Man Utd will look to do well in the Europa League.
Things have not been great on that end, however, as Man Utd currently sits in third place in Group A with a record of 2-0-2, which puts them one point behind Fenerbahce and Feyenoord. A win over Feyenoord at Old Trafford on Thursday would, at minimum, given Manchester United sole possession of second place in the ground, so it is certainly a must win for the club. A loss for Manchester United at home on Thursday would be absolutely disastrous.
Feyenoord, on the other hand, has outperformed expectations in group stage play so far, mainly thanks to a shocking 1-0 victory over Man Utd at home on September 15th. Feyenoord has allowed just two goals in four group stage games so far, so penetrating their defence will be easily said than done.
Bolstered by their home crowd, Manchester United will look to get their season back on track when they play an opponent that they should be able to easily handle on Thursday.
The way that this season has gone for Manchester United, however, don't be surprised if something unexpected happens at Old Trafford.
