Man Utd v Villarreal team news

Marcus Rashford and Amad trained away from the squad ahead of this clash but will not be fit to play.

Harry Maguire has also been ruled out by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Luke Shaw will be given a chance to prove his fitness tomorrow and could make the bench.

Everyone else should be fit to play, although Aaron Wan-Bissaka is suspended after his red card against Young Boys.

Our prediction: Man Utd v Villarreal

This is a huge game and United need to offer up a major improvement on their recent performances.

Emery’s side will defend deep and be very organised and it’s up to United to break them down.

The atmosphere should be electric at Old Trafford and Cristiano Ronaldo could well make the difference – again.

This is an opportunity for United to show they’re a better side than they were in May, when Villarreal frustrated them in Gdansk, but it is unlikely to be a free-flowing game.

Our prediction: United 1-0 Villarreal
