This is it. The Last Gdańsk (sorry). Manchester United play their final match of a grueling 2020-21 season on Wednesday, and it’s a big one — the Europa League final. Their opponents will be La Liga side Villarreal, whose manager Unai Emery has won this competition three times. Unlike United, who have already secured Champions League qualification for next season, The Yellow Submarine need to win this final to book their place in Europe next year. The Reds need no extra motivation though, as this is a chance to end their recent trophy drought and give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his first silverware as manager of Manchester United.
United captain Harry Maguire did not train yesterday after missing the last few games with an ankle injury, and looks increasingly unlikely to feature. Anthony Martial failed to recover in time to make the trip to Poland, but United should have a fully fit squad to choose from other than that. After picking up knocks, both Scott McTominay and Fred were pictured in training. A question remains over which goalkeeper will start the final, but recent signs point to David de Gea getting the nod over Dean Henderson.
