Granada vs Manchester United predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Europa League fixture tonight

Manchester United play Granada tonight in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final, with the competition representing the club’s best remaining opportunity of winning a trophy this season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side travel to the south of Spain with a number of injury problems in their forwards department, however, with Marcus Rashford a doubt for the game and Anthony Martial likely to miss the rest of the season.

Mason Greenwood’s return to form has come at the right time, however, with the 19-year-old scoring the winner in United’s 2-1 win over Brighton in the Premier League on Sunday.

They face a Granada side who lie ninth in La Liga and have reached the last eight of the Europa League in their first-ever season of European football.
