Manchester United look to ensure they do not finish another season without a trophy. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was under no illusion that winning the Europa League this season would rank amongst his finest career achievements.
Pressure has been eased on United after a third-place finish in the Premier League which assured them of Champions League football next season. There is less stress for Solskjaer ahead of Monday’s meeting with FC Copenhagen, which might be the last opportunity this season for Solskjaer to risk rotation with his starting line up.
Such a scenario would only bolster United’s hopes of success in Europe this season but the manager might be tempted to rest a few more of his key players against Copenhagen after such a lengthy season.
Sergio Romero is expected to start in goal as part of the usual cup rotation policy. There are also two potential departures in defence with injury-ravaged duo Diogo Dalot and Eric Bailly both potentially in line for some game time on Monday night. Elsewhere and the same can be said for Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira with the duo having to accept new reduced roles in the first-team playing squad, according to Manchester Evening News.
