The Red Devils are in control, though there can be no room for mistakes. Let’s delve right into our predicted Man Utd XI vs Granada for the all-important Europa League second-leg.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side enters this one in good knick. Back-to-back wins against Granada and Tottenham Hotspur have the good vibes flowing. Now, it’s time to finish the job at the Theatre of Dreams.
A 2-0 lead can be a dangerous one, though you’d hope that the quality this Manchester United side possess should be more than enough – that’s despite suspensions to Harry Maguire, Scott McTominay and Luke Shaw.
The message will be don’t try to be a hero, don’t make any daft challenges and just keep it simple. At the end of the day, Granada has to come out and attack, which should play to our strengths.
Due to the aforementioned suspensions and injuries, this team pretty much picks itself for the Baby Faced Assassin, so let’s get right down to it…
Check out the predicted Man Utd XI vs Granada in full here:
David de Gea has now been installed as the cup goalkeeper, so it makes sense for the superstar Spaniard to keep his place in between the sticks here.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka continues to be the only real top-quality option the gaffer has at right-back, so it makes sense for The Spider to play here. Alex Telles comes into the side on the left due to Shaw being missing. Axel Tuanzebe hasn’t played for ages but we’re going to need him to step up to the plate here, with Victor Lindelof also involved.
Fred gets the nod in the holding midfield slot, with United going to need his energy and work ethic. Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba have to play here as this is United’s only chance at a trophy.
Edinson Cavani looked fantastic on Sunday, so let’s keep that ball rolling against Granada. Marcus Rashford is still producing the goods despite being at 50% health, with Mason Greenwood rounding off the XI.
