Manchester United come up against A.S. Roma at home in the first leg of the UEFA Europa League semi-final. The Red Devils progressed in the previous stage overcoming Granada comfortably both home and away. Goals from Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani sealed United's fate over the two legs to make the semi finals of the competition once again.

With a trophy up for grab Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men will be looking to go all the way to add to the trophy cabinet. Below is all you need to know ahead of the UEFA Europa League contest at Old Trafford.

  • What team is Solskjaer likely to go for?

The home side have few absences as Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay all served one-match suspensions during the quarter final second leg victory over Granada and are available to feature one again. United's only absentees are still injured Anthony Martial and Phil Jones both still missing due to long term knee problems.

Solskjaer left both Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani out of his lineup to face Leeds United last time out, so the experienced European campaigners are set to come back into the XI, as Daniel James and Mason Greenwood potentially make way. Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford overcame a foot injury which kept him out of training last week to start on Sunday and should line up in support of ex Napoli man Cavani. Eric Bailly is in contention to feature while Solskjaer remains undecided on who would start in goal for the Red Devils
