4-2-3-1: United will send Copenhagen packing with this fantastic line-up

Manchester United go into tomorrow’s Europa League Quarter final against Danish side FC Copenhagen with no new injury concerns.

Luke Shaw and Axel Tuanzebe are sidelined until September and although reports claim that Phil Jones is back training with the squad after knee surgery was postponed, he reportedly has not travelled to Cologne for the tournament.

We think Solskjaer will opt for the latter and give De Gea the gloves.

In terms of outfield players, Victor Lindelof was reportedly a concern for the Reds but has now been declared fit and ready for selection.

With no other competitions to focus on, there seems to be no reason why Solskjaer won’t pick his strongest side for the quarter final and so with that in mind, here is our predicted side:
