Manchester United

Manchester United are coming into this game on the back of an impressive Derby win over Manchester City and they will be full of confidence.

The Red Devils have done exceedingly well in the Europa League so far this season and they will be hoping to grind out a positive result in the first leg of the knockout rounds.

The home side will be without quite a few of their first-team players due to injury problems.

Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba, Phil Jones, Donny van de Beek, Marcus Rashford, Juan Mata, Luke Shaw and David De Gea are all expected to miss out.

Possible Manchester United lineup

Dean Henderson, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Alex Telles, Fred, Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial, Daniel James, Mason Greenwood

 AC Milan

AC Milan’s performance has been quite poor since the turn of the year and they have won just four of the last eleven matches in all competitions.

They will be hoping to get their season back on track with a positive result against United this week and it will be posting to see if they can step up and get the job done.

The away side will be without Ismael Bennacer, Mario Mandzukic, Daniele Bonera, Hakan Calhanoglu, Ante Rebic, Theo Hernandez and the former Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic for this game. There is some talks of miraculous return of their mercurial striker against his former team, but that looks very unlikely.

Possible AC Milan lineup

Gianluigi Donnarumma, Davide Calabria, Fikayo Tomori, Alessio Romagnoli, Diogo Dalot, Soualiho Meite, Franck Kessie, Alexis Saelemaekers, Rade Krunic, Samu Castillejo, Rafael Leao

Manchester United are probably the better team in theory and they are in better form as well.

AC Milan are without several key players for this game and they do not have the depth Manchester United possess.
