[Teams] Man Utd vs LASK: Confirmed line-ups from Old Trafford

Man United are back in the Europa League this week as they take on LASK Linz at Old Trafford in the second leg of the Round of 16.

LASK have lost just one of their past seven Europa League games (W4 D2), although that defeat did come against Manchester United in the first leg, conceding as many goals in that game (5) as they had done in their first eight matches in the competition this season.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has claimed that his players do not want a rest and insisted that his team want to win the Europa League this month.

Providing his prediction, Owen wrote in his column for BetVictor, "United have already qualified for next season's Champions League, by way of their third-place finish in the Premier League".

"Tournament football is a lot different to club football and like I say you have to adapt quickly to the surroundings and things like that".

The match kick-off time is 8 pm.

"We've got a 5-0 lead against LASK, but they're a good team and we need to be careful", Fred was quoted as saying by club's official website manutd.com.

He added: "We were winning 2-0 after 60 minutes and scored three in the closing stages, so we know we have to perform".

Other than Luke Shaw, Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones who remain on the sidelines through injury, Ole has a near full squad to choose from with the youngsters Teden Mengi, Ethan Laird, James Garner and Tahith Chong are likely to feature.

The Norwegian was asked about the situation of Chris Smalling, who returned to the Red Devils today following his loan spell at Roma.

Seun Popoola said, "I think starting Ighalo is subject to the strategy adopted by the coach because recently United prefer the counter-attack style and Ighalo is not so fast".

"This season was about him being a regular".

United could face Antonio Conte's Nerazzurri in the August 21 finale in Cologne should both sides make it that far in Germany, where Solskjaer expects to stay rather than fly in and out of.
