Manchester United players will wake up this morning hoping to end the evening as Europa League final winners.

The team take on Villarreal in a game which will kick off at 8pm.

The players trained at the stadium in Gdansk on Tuesday evening, and now it is a waiting game ahead of the final itself.

Star man Bruno Fernandes explained in his press conference yesterday, how United’s players will spend the time today.

Fernandes said: “We will pass the time like we do normally. We will do some videos of course, we will study the opponent. We did it already but of course tomorrow we do something more I hope.

“The most important is we know what we have to do and everyone is confident. We have time to think on the game but it’s more important to rest, eat well and be ready for the game. That’s it.”

Fernandes admitted the squad were ready to play the final last night.

 

He said: “I think the more time passes, the worst it is because if we could play today, it would have been better.”

More analysis can help

As much as Fernandes’ eagerness to get out and play is endearing, United will be better prepared tonight.

Extra analysis conducted in today’s sessions will make United’s players better informed about opponents Villarreal, and how their own strengths can exploit the Spaniards.

Fernandes is a certain starter for the fixture after a fantastic season in which he has scored 28 goals and provided 18 assists.

It would be ideal if he could grab a couple of goals tonight and take his personal tally to 30, but he won’t mind if he does not get on the scoresheet, so long as United actually win.
