Anthony Martial and Memphis Depay wrapped up warm as Manchester United trained on Wednesday ahead of the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie at Midtjylland.

The Red Devils suffered a 2-1 loss to Premier League strugglers Sunderland at a cold, windy Stadium of Light on Saturday afternoon.

Louis van Gaal’s side will look to make an immediate return to winning ways against the Danish champions after dropping down to the Europa League after finishing third in their Champions League group.

Midtjylland have already secured one Premier League scalp this season after a 2-1 aggregate win against Ronald Koeman’s Southampton side in the Europa League play-offs in August.

They won their only previous match in Manchester, beating Manchester City FC 1-0 in the first leg of a 2008/09 Uefa Cup second qualifying round tie. They lost the return fixture by the same scoreline, bowing out 4-2 on penalties.

United’s six encounters with Danish teams have ended W4 D1 L1 (W2 D1 L0 at home – W2 D0 L1 in Denmark).
