Manchester United Team News
Man United will be without Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane due to injury, while Mason Greenwood is out after testing positive for coronavirus.
Edinson Cavani’s tendon problem is unlikely to be resolved in time, while Luke Shaw suffered another suspended concussion against Watford and might be replaced by Diogo Dalot at left-back.
Carrick is poised to make changes from the Watford match, with Donny van de Beek set to start in midfield and Eric Bailly set to play in the back four against his former side, as the Ivorian is believed to be required against Chelsea next weekend due to Harry Maguire’s league suspension.
Jesse Lingard is also vying for a start, although Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, and Jadon Sancho could all start in support of Cristiano Ronaldo, with Fred returning to the middle.
Villarreal Team News
Villarreal will be missing important forward Gerard Moreno due to a hamstring injury, while Serge Aurier is ineligible to play in the Champions League for the Yellow Submarine.
Emery is anticipated to make changes from the team that started the league match against Celta on Saturday, with Yeremi Pino and Francis Coquelin perhaps coming into the starting lineup.
The condition of Arnaut Danjuma and Etienne Capoue is also a concern for the hosts, although both players are likely to win their fitness battles after missing out against Celta.
