Villarreal vs Man United Team news
Nigerian Samuel Chukwueze is a major doubt but Unai is confident the attacker might be fit in time to face United. Goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo might start ahead of Genorimo Rulli who did not play convincingly in both semi-final legs against Arsenal.
Ex-Arsenal player Francis Coquelin played against his former employers at the Emirates due to the absence of Etienne Capoue who was suspended but the latter should reclaim his place alongside Dani Parejo in midfield.
Paco Alcacer should start ahead of Carlos Bacca and play alongside the in-form Gerard Moreno after Bacca failed to make an impact against Real Madrid on final La Liga day.
Harry Maguire has missed United’s last four games due to a hamstring injury but Ole has included the England defender in his 26-man squad travelling to Gdansk. Victor Lindelof should partner up with Eric Bailly in case Harry is not fit.
Anthony Martial has returned to training but has not been included in Ole’s squad while Phil Jones remains an absentee. David De Gea is expected to get the nod ahead of Dean Henderson while Cavani and Greenwood are well-rested and are expected to start.
Villarreal vs Man United predicted lineups
Villarreal: Rulli; Foyth, Albiol, Torres, Pedraza; Pino, Capoue, Parejo, Trigueros, Moreno, Bacca
Man United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Lindelöf, Shaw; McTominay, Fred; Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Pogba; Cavani
