Manchester United vs Istanbul Basaksehir LIVE: Team news and line-ups in Champions League tonight

Manchester United are hosting Istanbul Basaksehir tonight in the Champions League group stage and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping to move a step closer to the last 16. United were stunned in Turkey and will be hoping to make amends after the disappointment. 

Edinson Cavani and Donny van de Beek both start the game, as does fellow summer signing Alex Telles, with an otherwise strong line-up which includes David de Gea, Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, showing just how important the game is to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

RENNES 0-1 CHELSEA (66’)

Rennes work the ball out to Del Castillo on the left but the pace is taken off his cross into the box as it strikes a Chelsea player. The visitors are defending in numbers and making sure there are no lapses in concentration.

RENNES 0-1 CHELSEA (64’)

Abraham goes to ground in the box, seemingly pulled down by Nyamsi. But the referee instead decides to award Rennes a free kick.

RENNES 0-1 CHELSEA (63’)

A Chilwell cross is diverted behind for a corner, which comes to nothing. Chelsea have struggled to get things going in attack since the break.

The home side make a change, bringing on Del Castillo for Lea Siliki.

RENNES 0-1 CHELSEA (60’)

Krasnodar have equalised against Sevilla, which doesn’t change too much for Chelsea. If the Russian side win, though, the Blues will be made to wait to confirm their place in the next round.

RENNES 0-1 CHELSEA (59’)

There’s a lack of cutting edge from Rennes, who attack again down the right through Traore and Doku. Chilwell slides in to dispossess the latter.

RENNES 0-1 CHELSEA (56’)

Chelsea deal with another couple of corners, determined to hold on to another clean sheet. They look hugely improved as a defensive unit with Silva and Mendy in the side.

1606244888

RENNES 0-1 CHELSEA (55’)

A long spell of Rennes possession ends with a low shot from Traore, which deflects off Silva and flashes just wide. From the corner, Silva is on hand again to power a header clear.

1606244708

RENNES 0-1 CHELSEA (51’)

Mount tries to slide a pass through to Werner on the edge of the box, but it’s intercepted. Chelsea look sharp again now having regrouped at half-time.

1606244504

RENNES 0-1 CHELSEA (47’)

Werner has the ball in the net, but the whistle has already been blown. Hudson-Odoi lays the ball off for Azpilicueta to cross, and his curling delivery is glanced into the bottom corner by Werner. He strays offside, though, and it won’t count.
