Man Utd predict Granada roster

Manchester United are hoping to secure a place in the Europa League semi-finals for the second season in a row when they face Granada in their second leg at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils hold a 2-0 lead in the first leg thanks to goals from star duo Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes, meaning they are big favorites to advance to the next round.

With Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay all suspended, along with nursing injuries from Rashford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must keep his squad spinning while making sure he has enough quality to defeat their brave La Liga opponents.

Here is 90 minutes predicted United’s roster.

David De Gea (GK) – The Spaniard now finds himself behind Dean Henderson in the pecking order, but should still have possession of the gloves when it comes to European football.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (RB) – Regular holder of a defense weakened by suspensions, Wan-Bissaka will need to play from the start to familiarize himself if nothing else.

Victor Lindelof (CB) – Despite a lingering problem, Maguire’s absence and Eric Bailly’s Covid-19 issues mean Lindelof will likely be needed here.

Axel Tuanzebe (CB) – Has not played since the Europa League second leg against Real Sociedad, so making a good impression is essential.

Alex Telles (LB) – The Brazilian full-back was likely to start anyway, but Shaw’s suspension means that’s almost certain. His passing and passing precision could be the key to unlocking Grenade.

Fred (CM) – A good performance against Spurs was capped with a very important goal, so Solskjaer should keep the momentum going by restarting Fred.

Nemanja Matic (CM) – No McTominay means it’s between the Serbian and Pogba, but with the Frenchman likely to be rested for a few big games in the lead, Matic could be deployed as a second anchor.

Bruno Fernandes (CAM) – It would ideally be a big chance for Donny van de Beek to play, but Fernandes is too important to give up with other regular first-team players.

Juan Mata (RW) – The former Chelsea and Valencia player has been a bit of a playfulness this season, but Mata should get a few minutes here.

Mason Greenwood (ST) – Three goals and one assist in his last four games, Greenwood claims a regular starting spot in Manchester United’s attack.

Daniel James (LW) – James missed the weekend’s game at Spurs with a blow but his availability here could give Rashford a break.
