Manchester United will hope to keep their quest for a Europa league title and a place in next season’s UEFA Champions league when they face Celta Vigo later today.
The Red Devils will be happy for the return of Paul Pogba and Eric Bailly while Ibrahimovic is still out.
The four-man defence of Man United comprising of Young, Bailly, Valencia and Darmian will have to be wary of the threat from Celta’s wingers top scorer Iago Aspas and Pione Sisto.
How they line up:
Celta Vigo (4-2-3-1): Alvarez, Mallo, Cabral, Fontas, Johnny, Radoja, Hernandez, Aspas, Wass, Sisto, Guidetti.
Manchester United (4-3-3): Romero, Young, Bailly, Darmian, Valencia, Pogba, Carrick, Herrera, Mkhitaryan, Rashford, Martial.
In the other semi-final fixture played yesterday, Ajax continued their resurgence in Europe putting four past a disappointing Lyon.
Chelsea loanee Bertrand Traore scored a brace in the 25th and 71st minutes while Manchester United target Kasper Dolberg and Amin Younes were the other scorers. Mathieu Valbuena scored the consolation goal for the French side in the 66th minute.
The return leg will take place on May 11 at Lyon.
