Manchester United will face off against Copenhagen at RheinEnergieSTADION on Monday night hoping to pick up a victory and book a place in the semifinals of the UEFA Europa League. The Red Devils had managed to beat LASK Linz by a 7-1 aggregate scoreline, which will give them a lot of confidence heading into next week’s European showdown in Cologne.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and might name a strong team for this game versus the Danish outfit. Anthony Martial is expected to start following his match-winning cameo as a late substitute in the last round of the competition.

4-2-3-1 Manchester United Predicted Lineup To Face Copenhagen

Defence

Sergio Romero should continue in goal for the Mancunian giants despite failing to keep a clean sheet versus LASK Linz in his last outing. Eric Bailly might get another chance to impress alongside Harry Maguire at the heart of Solskjaer’s defence as they try to keep things stable at the back on Monday.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is expected to return as the right-back while Brandon Williams looks to produce another solid performance at left-back. Solskjaer would want both his full-backs to maintain a good defensive shape and provide adequate support to the front players in the decisive end of the field.

Midfield

Nemanja Matic will anchor the midfield along with Paul Pogba as they focus on dominating the ball so that they can orchestrate some decent goal-scoring chances in the final third. The incredible trio of Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Mason Greenwood will operate just ahead of them as part of the Red Devils attack.

James Garner, Andreas Pereira and Fred will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to influence the game if Solskjaer calls upon their services.

Attack

Anthony Martial will once again get the duty to lead the charge for Man United up top. The French striker will fancy his chances of getting his name on the scoresheet after he has discovered a decent run of form since the Premier League’s restart in June.

Odion Ighalo will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he awaits his opportunity to shine as an impact substitute if the Mancunian club require a goal late in the game.
