Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Villarreal

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday's Europa League final with Villarreal.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will aim to claim his first piece of silverware in the Old Trafford dugout when his side do battle with Villarreal in Wednesday's Europa League final.

The Red Devils head into the continental showpiece event having spoiled Nuno Espirito Santo's leaving party in a 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Anthony Elanga and Juan Mata netting while Nelson Semedo pulled one back for the hosts.

Solskjaer is now aspiring to follow in the footsteps of Jose Mourinho, who masterminded Man United's success in the 2017 Europa League final, and the Red Devils booked their tickets to Gdansk courtesy of an 8-5 aggregate semi-final win over Roma.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Man United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the final.

Possible return date: May 26 (vs. Villarreal)

Harry Maguire has not taken to the field since suffering ankle ligament damage in the win over Aston Villa earlier this month, and Solskjaer has poured doubt over his chances of making the final. The defender will need to complete a training session on Tuesday to be given the green light.


Anthony Martial

Phil Jones remains sidelined with a serious knee problem that has kept him out since January 2020 - although he was rumoured to have been in contention to feature against Wolves - and it is looking increasingly likely that he has played his final game for the Red Devils.
