Manchester United take on the Belgian outfit in the second leg of a Europa League quarter-final at Old Trafford tonight.

Full-back Shaw earns a rare start while Zlatan Ibrahimovic leads the line after being benched for the 2-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday.

Sergio Romero, Michael Carrick and Henrikh Mkhitaryan also come into the United XI.

As expected, David de Gea is on the bench as Romero takes up his usual spot as the Red Devils' first-choice Europa League keeper.

Matteo Darmian, Ashley Young, Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini all drop out of the side that started in the victory over Antonio Conte's men.

Darmian fails to make the bench for the 8.05pm kick-off against Anderlecht as club captain Wayne Rooney returns to the matchday 18.

Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard retain their places in Mourinho's XI after impressive displays at the weekend, though goalscorer Rashford will play out wide due to Ibrahimovic's return.

United's opponents lineup as follows:
