Manchester United Team News
United will again be without the services of Harry Maguire, Anthony Martial and Phil Jones through injury. Daniel James is also expected to remain on the sidelines for the Red Devils. Solskjaer is likely to rest a number of players against Wolves at the weekend, meaning that it could be a relatively strong starting XI on Tuesday as the club build towards the Europa League final.
Axel Tuanzebe could potentially come in for a start at the back, while Paul Pogba may drop into a midfield two alongside Scott McTominay, allowing Marcus Rashford to play off the left. Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood should also both be in the home side’s XI, with Solskjaer keen to sign off at Old Trafford with a positive performance and result.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Tuanzebe, Shaw; McTominay, Pogba; Rashford, Fernandes, Greenwood; Cavani
