The last time Man Utd lost four of its first seven league games it was 1989/90 and a dissenting fan displayed the famous 'Ta-Ra Fergie' banner that demanded a change of manager early in Sir Alex Ferguson's tenure. Now Erik ten Hag must turn around a similarly listing season if he's to add to last season's League Cup triumph.

United, who lost 4-3 to Bayern Munich on matchday 1, were booed off following a limp 1-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday, with Marcus Rashford in particular struggling to replicate last season 30-goal campaign.

Ever since Galatasaray fans greeted United with a 'Welcome to Hell' banner in 1993, there's been a sense of history to this fixture. Coach Okan Buruk took Gala from 13th in 2022 to the league title last time out. Controversial striker Mauro Icardi has continued his fine form from last season – excluding a penalty fail that went viral a week ago – by scoring 10 times already, while former Red Wilfried Zaha notched his first goal for his new club in the weekend's 2-1 defeat of Ankaragucu.
