A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

Manchester United will welcome Villarreal at Old Trafford on Wednesday night as they look to bounce back from their shock defeat at the hands of Young Boys in the opening week of this UEFA Champions League campaign. The Red Devils suffered a disappointing 1-0 loss against Aston Villa last weekend which has dampened their mood ahead of this European game at the Theatre of Dreams.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will stick with his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to make a few changes to his teamsheet for this game. Victor Lindelof, Alex Telles and Diogo Dalot could all be in line to start this match as Solskjaer has to cope without Harry Maguire (calf injury), Luke Shaw (muscle problem) and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who is suspended for this clash.

David de Gea will operate in goal for the Red Devils after failing to secure a clean sheet against the Villans in his last outing. Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof could operate as the centre-backs in the injury absence of Harry Maguire who is struggling with a calf injury.

Diogo Dalot will function at right-back as Aaron Wan-Bissaka is not available after he picked up a red card against Young Boys. Luke Shaw will miss this game as well, so Alex Telles could get a chance to impress as the left-back.

Eric Bailly will offer cover for the defensive positions on Solskjaer’s bench.

Fred is expected to resume his midfield partnership with Scott McTominay as they try to establish their superiority over the opposition at the centre of the park. The gifted trio of Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and Mason Greenwood will play just ahead of them as part of Solskjaer’s frontline.

Fernandes will be eager to make amends after his late penalty miss against the Villans which cost his team a point. Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard will be named on the bench as they wait for their chance to impress as the impact substitutes if needed.


Cristiano Ronaldo will spearhead the Man United attack up top. The Portuguese superstar failed to register a goal last weekend, so he will be hungry to get his name on the scoresheet versus the Yellow Submarine in midweek.

Edinson Cavani will be available on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the final stages of the game if required.
