United are determined to win their first trophy under Solskjaer in the Europa League final. And to do so, here are the possible ways the Red Devils could line up against Villarreal in the Europa League final on Wednesday.
Option 1: Tuanzebe Starts
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely to miss his captain Harry Maguire for the Villarreal clash, despite the Englishman traveling with the Manchester United squad for the Europa League final clash. Thus, Ole could opt to start Axel Tuanzebe ahead of Eric Bailly after watching his recent performances.
While the front-6 will remain the same that was involved in the demolition of AS Roma in the semi-finals. Edinson Cavani, Bruno Fernandes, and Paul Pogba will have to produce a similar destruction job to get a big win for the Red Devils.
Option 2: Eric Bailly To Start Against His Former Club
With the Ivorian being one of the most experienced center-backs at the manager’s disposal, Bailly has a strong chance of starting against his former side. He will hope to create a solid defensive shape with Victor Lindelof to keep Villarreal quiet.
This line up against Villarreal could also allow Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba to start in their preferred roles.
With Pogba to slot in for Fred in the midfield pivot, while Rashy creates problems down the left wing. Mason Greenwood also starts and could look for a man-of-the-match worthy display in his first major final.
