Manchester United head to Cyprus on Thursday to take on Omonia Nicosia in matchday three of the Europa League group stage.

The Red Devils head into the group E clash having seen their domestic winning run ended brutally in the Manchester derby at the weekend, losing 6-3 against Manchester City on a humbling day. Meanwhile, they have three points so far in Europe from previous games against Real Sociedad, which was decided by a controversial penalty, and Sheriff Tiraspol.

Omonia have lost both of their Europa League group stage games so far and sit rooted to the bottom of the standings. If they harbour any hopes of causing a major upset and reaching the knockout stages, a win at home to United could prove crucial.

Here's everything you ought to know ahead of the game.

Omonia team news

Midfielder Moreto Cassama was missing from the Omonia team once again at the weekend after getting injured against Real Sociedad, thus it's unlikely he'll feature against United.

Hector Yuste was also injured against Sociedad but returned to the bench at the weekend, boosting Omonia, who have no other injury concerns to stress about.

Man Utd team news

Erik ten Hag confirmed in his press conference that Raphael Varane will miss out after sustaining an injury against Manchester City, although the issue is not expected to be a serious one.

Harry Maguire is also unavailable after picking up an injury on international duty, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Donny van de Beek remain sidelined too.

Anthony Martial returned to action in the weekend defeat and grabbed himself a brace off the bench in the process - he could therefore return to the starting XI here. With United braced for a busy October, some general rotation wouldn't be surprising either.

Man Utd predicted lineup vs Omonia

Man Utd Starting XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Dalot, Lindelof, Martinez, Shaw; Casemiro, Eriksen; Antony, Fernandes, Sancho; Martial
Bench: Heaton, Malacia, Fred, McTominay, Elanga, Rashford, Ronaldo

Omonia vs Man Utd score prediction

A win and a loss so far in the Europa League isn't the greatest start for United, but it's hardly a calamity - yet.

Defeat against City at the weekend was a tough one to swallow in the manner that it happened, but there were some ever so slight positives to take, especially in the second half, and it doesn't undo the work they had already done in the last month to get back on track.

Omonia are hurting after being beaten in both of their two games so far. And while welcoming a club like United to their stadium is the perfect opportunity to cause an upset, it's hard to see anything other than a win for Ten Hag's men in the first ever meeting between the two sides.

Prediction: Omonia 0-3 Man Utd
