Manchester United squad vs Villareal for Europa League final revealed - key player ruled out

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed his squad that will take on Villareal on Wednesday night in the Europa League final.

Man United will look to end their season with a trophy when they face La Liga side, Villareal, in the Europa League final at Gdansk.

The Norwegian boss could not resist the temptation to leave Harry Maguire behind as the England international was seen travelling with his teammates to Poland for the final.

Solskjaer has said on several occasions that he doesn’t expect the Manchester United captain to feature in the game as the 27-year-old hasn’t fully recovered from an ankle injury he suffered against Aston Villa earlier this month.

Anthony Martial was not part of the travelling squad as he is still recovering from a knee injury but teenagers Anthony Elanga and Amad Diallo, who both impressed against Wolves on Sunday, were part of United’s travelling squad.

The big guns Edinson Cavani, Bruno Fernandes, David de Gea, Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw, who were not included in the squad against Wolves, were also included in the squad for the Villareal clash.

It is also important to be aware that Maguire’s inclusion in the travelling squad doesn’t really mean he is fit for the game as he could go on to support his teammates from the stands.

According to Manchester United official website, below is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United travelling squad to face Villareal.

De Gea, Henderson, Grant, Bishop, Bailly, Lindelöf, Maguire, Shaw, Telles, Tuanzebe, Wan-Bissaka, Williams, Amad, Bruno Fernandes, Fred, James, Mata, Matić, McTominay, Pogba, Van de Beek, Cavani, Elanga, Greenwood, Rashford, Shoretire
