Villarreal vs Man Utd build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
History will be made when Villarreal contest their first major European cup final. The Yellow Submarine denied another all-English final when they eliminated Arsenal in the semi-finals. A narrow 2-1 victory at home was enough as they would go on to register a goalless draw against Mikel Arteta’s men at the Emirates Stadium. It was a cathartic occasion for manager Unai Emery who spent just over a year with the Londoners before his unceremonious departure. Emery is something of a Europa League fiend having previously won the competition three times with Sevilla before finishing runners-up with the Gunners.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made a slew of changes from his regular first XI against Wolves last time out and the chances are those who started at Molineux in the last Premier League game of this season will either completely miss out facing Villarreal by not making Man Utd’s matchday squad, or start on the bench. Prior to losing in Rome in the second leg of their semi-final, the Red Devils had won four consecutive matches including a 1-0 success over AC Milan at the San Siro. This will be the club’s second Europa League/UEFA Cup final and they’ll be looking to maintain their 100% record after cruising to a 2-0 win over Ajax in the 2017 edition.
- Villarreal (vs Real Madrid): Rulli; Gaspar, Albiol, Torres, Pedraza; Trigueros, Capoue, Parejo, Yeremy; Moreno, Bacca.
- Man Utd (vs Wolves): Henderson; Williams, Tuanzebe, Bailly, Telles; Matic, Van de Beek; Diallo, Mata, James; Elanga.
Samuel Chukwueze and Juan Foyth are the only major doubts in Unai Emery’s squad to face Man Utd on Wednesday evening, though they have both travelled. Phil Jones and Anthony Martial are both ruled out for the Red Devils while Harry Maguire is in Gdansk but sat out of training on Tuesday.

Player to watch: Bruno Fernandes (Man Utd)
This game will be a moment of truth for several players in both teams. Gerard Moreno is enjoying a prolific campaign having bagged 23 goals in La Liga and six more during Villarreal’s historic Europa League final run. His teammates will be looking to him and vice versa but they’ll need to be aware of the Bruno Fernandes threat.
Man Utd’s standout performer this season has been the Europa League’s most prolific creator in the knockout phase. Heading into the Gdansk showdown he’s created 23 chances (ranked first) and four assists (ranked first) whilst scoring six goals (ranked joint-second). Fernandes was completely rested against Wolves over the weekend and if El Submarino Amarillo are unable to get on top of him then it could be a long evening for them.
