Man United Starting XI Prediction vs AS Roma (Europa League Semis)


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is just two more obstacles away from claiming his first trophy ever as Manchester United manager. As the Europa League semifinal round commences on Thursday, the Norwegian will have a nearly fully fit squad to choose from. Perhaps that was by design, given the approach he and his side seemed to take in Sunday’s dull goalless draw at Leeds United.

In that match, Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani were restricted to only late cameo appearances, so one should expect the pair to get a first team assignment here against AS Roma.

Expect a mix of first teamers and reserves in the starting lineup. OGS was slammed on social media by many United fans over the substitutions he made this past weekend. The criticism was deserved, but he can redeem himself now if his squad selection proves to be astute and eventually results in a trophy.
