Vitoria Guimaraes vs Arsenal Preview:

Possible starting lineups:

Vitoria Guimaraes:
Douglas; Rochinha, Tapsoda, Henrique, Hanin; Evangelista, Agu, Teixeira; Edwards, Duarte, Pereira

Arsenal:
Martinez; Bellerin, Holding, Mustafi, Kolasinac; Xhaka, Willock; Maitland-Niles, Smith Rowe, Pepe; Martinelli

This match will be played on Wednesday afternoon, a day earlier than the other 23 fixtures of Europe League taking place. The reason is because Braga host Besiktas at the Municipal Stadium on Thursday, just 15 miles from Vitoria's home ground. By moving this game, UEFA hopes to ease the pressure on Portuguese police and avoid busy traffic. The game will also start at an unusual time (16:50 CET) to avoid broadcasting clashes with the Champions League.

Vitoria Guimaraes will be looking to escape their fourth defeat when hosting Premier League outfit Arsenal. The Portuguese outfit have no points after the first three matches of Group F and this game is their last chance to remain in the battle for top two positions. Guimaraes started the European campaign with a 2:0 defeat to Standard. In the next match Ivo Vieira's team suffered another defeat. They lost 1:0 to the Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt. Finally, they lost 3:2 to Arsenal in the reverse fixture two weeks ago. They lost, but didn't disappoint at the Emirats. Former Tottenham player Marcus Edwards gave Vitoria a shock lead, while Bruno Duarte scored the second goal. The atmosphere in the squad isn't at desired level, but the players confidence is now higher. What is positive, coach Vieira has no significant injury issues. Just two players - Djavan and Joao Aurelio - are rated as doubtful.

Arsenal have maximal effect after the first three rounds. In the opening match they beat Eintracht Frankfurt with 3:0. The victory is even more valuable as it was obtain away from home. First two goals were scored by academy graduates Joe Willock and Bukayo Sak, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang added the third. The Gunners won the next match too, a high 4:0 victory against Standard. Teenage striker Gabriel Martinelli, who came this summer for £6m, scored two goals, while Joe Willock and Dani Ceballos netted the remaining two. Finally, Arsenal beat Vitoria Guimaraes in the reverse fixture. North London club came twice from behind to defeat the Portuguese club 3:2. Substitute Nicolas Pepe rescued Arsenal with two sublime free-kicks in the last 10 minutes, while Gabriel Martinelli also found the back of the net earlier. Unai Emery's men will try to maintain their 100% record, though it won't be easy. Many changes are expected, even the captain Granit Xhaka could be handed a recall after the ugly incident with the club's supporters. Youngsters Joe Willock, Emile Smith Rowe and Gabriel Martinelli will probably feature in the first eleven.

Vitoria Guimaraes vs Arsenal Prediction:

I expect Over 2.5 goals here. The key reason for my pick is Arsenal. The Gunners are favorites to pick up a fourth successive win in the group. They scored at least three goals in each of the previous three matches. But at the same time Arsenal showed defensive issues in the reverse fixture. Guimaraes are definitely able to do plenty of damage to Arsenal backline.

Manchester United vs Partizan Preview:

Possible starting lineups:

Manchester United:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Young; McTominay, Fred; James, Mata, Rashford; Martial

Partizan:
Stojkovic; Miletic, Ostojic, Pavlovic, Urosevic; Zdjelar, Natkho; Tosic, Soumah, Asano; Sadiq

Manchester United will be looking for another European victory when they welcome Partizan to Old Trafford. The Red Devils toiled to a 1:0 win in the reverse fixture in Serbia two weeks ago, thanks to Anthony Martial's goal from a penalty. Prior to that, United won 1:0 against Astana thanks to Mason Greenwood's goal in the second half, and played a goalless draw with AZ Alkmaar. Not bad at all, Manchester United are unbeaten in their last 14 matches in the Europa League, since defeat away to Fenerbahce in November 2016, keeping 10 clean sheets in this run. Nevertheless, manager Ole Gunar Solskjaer is again under pressure. The reason is domestic defeat at Bournemouth during the weekend. The Norvegian is well aware of the fact that United need to improve the results in the Premier League. Solskjaer will probably rotate his side and some players may be rested for the upcoming Sunday's match against Brighton. Paul Pogba has missed the last games with an ankle injury and remain out. The Frenchman is set to be sidelined until December. In addition, Luke Shaw, Nemanja Matic and Axel Tuanzebe are out until the international break. Diogo Dalot is rated as doubtful, while Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah remain long-term absentees. Ashley Young is suspended domestically due to accumulated yellow cards, but he is eligible to play in Europe League.

Partizan have four points with a record of one win, one draw and one loss. The Serbian outfit have beat Astana with 2:1, played a 2:2 draw with AZ Alkmaar and lost the reverse fixture to Manchester United in Belgrade. Partizan will try to secure at least the second place in Group L. They must get a positive result from Old Trafford as another defeat could leave them four points behind AZ Alkmaar. That is why I expect an interesting match at the Theatre of Dreams. Coach Savo Milosevic is well aware about that fact, so I expect his players to be fully motivated. After all, Partizan is an established name in Serbian football. They have claimed 27 national championships - 11 in former Yugoslavia, eight in former state called "Serbia and Montenegro" and finally eight titles in the actual Serbian Super League. Partizan are not lacking experience at all, this is their 44th season in some European competition. The actual form could be rated as inconsistent, they had two victories and one defeat on the last three domestic matches. Coach Milosevic has most of the players available, only Lazar Markovic is out due to injury. The former Liverpool man has an abductor problem that will keep him sidelined until New Year.

Manchester United vs Partizan Prediction
:

I expect a low scoring match. Solskjaer will probably rotate the squad, it is possible to rest some of his key players. In addition, United are yet to concede in this competition, while scored just twice in first three rounds. That means all three games finished with low scoring results. I expect the series to continue.

Manchester United vs Partizan Pick
: Under 2.5 goals @ 1,80 with SBOBET
