Manchester United Team News & Preview
Manchester United picked up a fine win over Crystal Palace with a weakened lineup and Jose Mourinho’s men will be confident for this one.
They are unbeaten in their last 10 Europa League games and are the better side on paper.
Rojo, Ibrahimovic, Shaw, Young, Bailly and Fosu–Mensah are all ruled out for the final.
Predicted Manchester United Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Jones, Blind; Herrera, Carrick; Martial, Pogba, Mkhitaryan; Rashford

Ajax vs Manchester United Prediction
This should be a close contest between two very similarly matched teams. The absence of Bailly and Ibrahimovic will be a major blow for Mourinho’s side but they are capable to beating Ajax with the players at their disposal.
Meanwhile, Ajax have shown that they can deliver big results on their day.
On paper, United are firm favourites to win here and Mourinho’s winning experience could make all the difference for them.
