Manchester United face Spanish side Sevilla in the Europa League semi finals this weekend, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer pushing for his first trophy as United boss.

The Norwegian has laid down the challenge to his players in midweek, by claiming that a semi final place is not enough for a club like United.

However, despite a rallying call from their boss, the United players will need to improve following their limp quarter final win over FC Copenhagen.

Bruno Fernandes’ extra time penalty saw them through, but United struggled against the Danes.

Eric Bailly is the only new fitness issue for Solskjaer, and Victor Lindelof could step in alongside Harry Maguire.

For Sevilla, despite the famous comments of John Aldridge and Ray Wilkins, are no push over in Europe.

In fact, Julen Lopetegui’s side are the Europa League most successful club, with three title wins in the last five seasons.

Lopetegui is expected to name an unchanged side from their win over Wolves.

Tomas Vaclik’s injury means that Bono, no not that one, this is the Moroccan international, will start, alongside former Manchester City star Jesus Navas.
