Man Utd v Roma team news

Man Utd: Anthony Martial and Phil Jones are the only absentees for Solskjaer ahead of the first leg.

Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani didn't start in the weekend draw with Leeds but are expected to be selected from the off against Roma, with Mason Greenwood and Daniel James the most likely to make way for the experienced pair.

Roma: Gianluca Mancini is suspended, while Antonio Mirante, Pedro, Riccardo Calafiori and Nicolo Zaniolo are missing through injury.

Chris Smalling returned to the side at the weekend and could feature against his former club, as could Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who scored for United in the 2017 Europa League final.

Our prediction: Man Utd v Roma

United are heavy favourites ahead of the first leg, and rightly so after a solid campaign both domestically and in Europe.

The Red Devils have saved some of their best performances this season for continental clashes and have already disposed of stronger sides in the Europa League.

Having conceded just once from six outings in the competition this season and with the firepower of Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba, United could make light work of an out-of-form Roma side.

Our prediction: Man Utd 2-0 Roma (13/2 at bet365)
