How Man United could line up against Copenhagen

Sports Mole looks at how Manchester United could line up for Monday's Europa League quarter-final with Copenhagen.

Manchester United square off against Copenhagen in the Europa League quarter-finals on Monday evening looking to make further progression in a competition which they won as recently as 2017.

Fresh off the back of claiming third position in the Premier League table, United confirmed their place in the last eight with a 2-1 win over LASK Linz on Wednesday night.

Having completed a 7-1 aggregate success over the Austrian side, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must now decide whether any of the players who featured at Old Trafford have done enough to retain their spot in the team.

Below, Sports Mole predicts how United could line up for their upcoming clash, which is taking place in Cologne.

Having taken the opportunity to make mass changes on Wednesday night, Solskjaer will almost certainly revert to his strongest team.

That should result in nine changes being made, with only Harry Maguire and Brandon Williams keeping their roles in the starting lineup.

Despite getting on the scoresheet in midweek, Jesse Lingard will drop back down to the substitutes' bench at a time when he is being linked with a move away from the club.

Paul Pogba should get the nod over Scott McTominay in the centre of midfield, while Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial will all be restored in the final third.

Solskjaer has a decision to make with regards to his goalkeeper after David de Gea's poor end to the domestic campaign.

However, having kept a clean sheet against Leicester City in his last outing, it would come as a surprise if the Spaniard lost his place to Sergio Romero.
