Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher expects Nick Powell to start in their Champions League clash with CFR Cluj.

Fletcher has been impressed by the former Crewe Alexandra midfielder this season.

Fletcher, 28, said: “I thought we were unfortunate to lose that match. We played a couple of young players and put in a good performance.

“It will have been massive for Nick Powell’s development.

“Nick is a fantastic player already. He is still relatively young but he is going to be a huge player for United. There is no doubt about that.”
