It was almost five months ago that Manchester United played the first leg of their Europa League round of 16 tie away at Austrian outfit LASK, recording a 5-0 win in Linz immediately before COVID-19 lockdowns suspended professional football across the continent. On Wednesday, they’ll get to finish the job, as LASK visit Old Trafford hoping to mount perhaps the greatest comeback the sport has ever seen.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær will likely opt to rotate his starting lineup, safe in the knowledge that United are all but through to the quarters. Phil Jones, Luke Shaw and Axel Tuanzebe are all out injured, though young centre-half Teden Mengi could be handed his debut after being named in United’s Europa League squad.
