Manchester United manager Olé Gunnar Solksjær and his men will fly to Italy to take on the country’s Serie A giants AC Milan in the second leg of their Europa League clash. The Red Devils hosted their Italian rivals last Thursday in the first leg of the clash at Old Trafford and conceded a late goal which canceled Ahmad Diallo’s opener to make the score level at 1-1 ahead of the return fixture.
Both teams had contrasting results in their league fixtures on Sunday as United sealed a narrow 1-0 win over David Moyes’s West Ham United at home, while the same scoreline was recorded in Milan’s game against Napoli, but with Milan on the losing end of the fixture. Stefan Pioli will be hoping that the result does not have too much of a negative impact on the mentality of his players, while Solksjær would be expecting his side to build up on that very important win.
United’s second-choice goalkeeper Dean Henderson is the favorite to start in goal for the visitors given his fine form currently and is expected to have Eric Bailly, Maguire, Wan-Bissaka, and Luke Shaw right in front of him in defense.
French Midfielder Paul Pogba could finally make his long-awaited return to the team and may likely start the match as well.
Predicted United XI:
Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Shaw, Lindelöf, Pogba, Fernandes, McTominay, Cavani, Rashford, James.
