Twitter Summary

Lord Irwin: Yes, I don't think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the right man to take us forward in the future. However, I am enjoying this training. I thought we looked solid in this formation against Liverpool. Anthony Martial is back too, I hope you can get some good minutes in the belt. A goal would be good too.

Rants: We better get away from Partizan Belgrade tonight or we're done! Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to face Mo Farah in January!

James: After winning away since March (like 12/13 games), I believe tonight could be the night that changes. We have to beat the team in fifth place in the Serbian League. The last win in 90 minutes was Leicester 7 weeks ago. Let's win it!

Lord Irwin, can you explain why you are called Lord Iniesta in your biography?

Party Form

17:10: The 27 league champions finished third in last season's Serbian SuperLiga and won the Serbian Cup for the fourth consecutive year.

Partizan currently ranks fifth in the standings after 11 games, seven points behind Red Star Belgrade leaders and rivals.

They enter this match losing 1-0 to Mladost Lucani in the championship this weekend, but lead Group L with Manchester United in the Europa League.

Connah Quay, Yeni Malatyaspor and former Ole Gunnar Solskjaer club Molde were beaten on the way to the group stage, where the 2-2 home draw with AZ Alkmaar was followed by a 2-1 win at Astana

Firemen

5:00 pm: This is different. There are firefighters and extinguishers in the Belgrade stadium. Flares were thrown on the race track for over an hour before the start. To say that they are willing to do so would be an understatement.

Team News

16:55: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer delivers teenager James Garner his first match at Manchester United in the Europa League match at Partizan Belgrade.

The 18-year-old is summoned to midfield one night when Harry Maguire is the captain of a team that appears to have a three-man defense once again.

Left-back Brandon Williams makes his second senior match, while Anthony Martial leads the line, while Solskjaer makes seven changes to the team that tied with Liverpool.

Twitter reaction

Ed Woodward: I'm sure we will beat Partizan Belgrade. I just agreed to lend Serbian national hero Nemanja Matic to Partizan for the reason of the season at no cost!

Tim: We're playing FIVE in the back against Partizan Belgrade FFS. Where is Manchester United free-kick football?

Abdullah: Manchester United playing 3-4-1-2 again in an interesting way. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has to find a way to make the formation look exciting because it looks so defensive.

Are you REAL Ed Woodward? Why do you only have 426 followers? I'll put Luther in the case …

Famous faces?

16:45: Coach Savo Milosevic said Partizan will have "some really exceptional young players on the pitch" against United tonight, when there will also be more familiar names available for selection.

Former Liverpool winger Hull and Fulham Lazar Markovic is part of the UEFA registered team, as are former Wigan and Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic.

The most focused player, however, is Zoran Tosic, having made five substitute appearances for United after joining in January 2009.

Well, that's a relief, I wondered what Vladimir Stojkovic was doing to himself. Committed viewer and blog contributor, obviously.
