Man United are leading 2-0 as they head into their second leg against Granada. Now, it’s time to finish the job.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s only chance at a trophy comes in the Europa League. Although the Old Trafford outfit has a couple-goal advantage, it’s best to play your strongest team here and get the job done.
Granada will no doubt come out to play, looking to hit us early and get back into this tie as quickly as possible. It’s up to the Red Devils to ensure they don’t switch off, remain focused and make this night a comfortable one.
With Harry Maguire, Scott McTominay and Luke Shaw missing this one through suspension, some changes were always going to be made to the starting XI.
Well, the team news is now in and it’s fair to say the gaffer isn’t looking to mess around here. A few big-hitters play, while there’s a rare start for Axel Tuanzebe. Let’s get right into it…
Check out the confirmed Man Utd XI vs Granada in full here:
David de Gea is now the Europa League goalkeeper, so it’s only fair he gets the chance at some minutes here.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the only choice at right-back, with the Englishman continuing to keep his place in the side. Alex Telles comes into the team which is a big opportunity for the Brazilian. Victor Lindelof is good to go, with the aforementioned Tuanzebe being given a massive chance.
Nemanja Matic sits at the midfield’s base, with Fred also included in the team. Bruno Fernandes is the main creator from midfield.
Paul Pogba will presumably play from off the left-hand side. He’s also been named United’s captain on the night, which is a massive honour for the Frenchman. Edinson Cavani leads the line, with Mason Greenwood making up the XI.
It’s lovely to see Will Fish amongst the substitutes, Anthony Elanga is also on the bench. Marcus Rashford, Donny van de Beek and Dan James can be called upon if needed.
