Romelu Lukaku, who scored five times against Young Boys during his time at Everton, will look to continue his impressive start to the season as he prepares to lead the attack line for Jose Mourinho's men with help from Rashford and Alexis Sanchez.

Manchester United have been forced to change the way they play in order to battle back from a poor start to the season, according to manager Jose Mourinho.
