Manchester United will travel to the Raiffeisen Arena to face off against LASK in the first-leg of their UEFA Europa League last-16 tie. The Red Devils will come into this contest on the back of a 2-0 win over Manchester City yesterday. Hence, the Mancunian giants will be quite confident about their chances of securing a positive result away in Austria in midweek.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will opt for a 3-4-2-1 formation and might make a few changes to his first-team for this European encounter on Thursday evening.

3-4-2-1 Manchester United Predicted Lineup Vs LASK


Sergio Romero has seen a lot of game time in the UEFA Europa League this season so he should get another start in goal for the Red Devils. Solskjaer will be inclined to play with a back three of Axel Tuanzebe, Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof for this clash versus the Austrian outfit.

Man United have been defensively solid over the past few weeks after allowing only two goals in their last ten matches across all competitions.

Luke Shaw should get the nod to operate as the left wing-back while Diogo Dalot would hope to put in a decent shift down the right flank. Both Nemanja Matic and Andreas Pereira are expected to line up as the holding midfielders as they focus on providing adequate cover for the back three. Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata might get a chance to work together as part of the Red Devils attack. They will be responsible for creating some decent openings going forward.

Mason Greenwood should be available for a place on the bench and might come on to feature in this contest if required.


Odion Ighalo could get the honour to lead the charge for Man United up top. The 30-year-old has already scored a goal for the Red Devils in the last round of the Europa League. He will fancy his chances of finding the back of the net heading into this clash versus Valérien Ismaël’s men.

Anthony Martial suffered a nasty injury in the 2-0 win over the Citizens last weekend. So he will be a major doubt for this game in midweek. Even if he passes a fitness test, Solskjaer might be more inclined to use him off the bench.
