UEL: Manchester United in Triple Trouble

After their win at Granada in their Europa League quarterfinal tie in the first leg, Manchester United faces a serious problem ahead of the return leg next week Thursday.

Manchester United to miss key players

The Red Devils will be without, not one, not two, but three key players for the clash set to be played at Old Trafford.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saw centre-back Harry Maguire, left-back Luke Shaw and midfielder Scott McTominay all booked during the 2-0 win.

It means the Norwegian will face something of a defensive crisis at Old Trafford next Thursday.

Eric Bailly would usually be next in line to start alongside Victor Lindelof, but the Ivorian tested positive for coronavirus during the international break.

Solskjaer could select Axel Tuanzebe, as Phil Jones’s fitness is still unclear after not playing since January 2020 due to injury.

There could also be a major formation shuffling, with the possibility of a makeshift backline lining out to do the job next week.
