Manchester United will look to secure their first trophy since 2017 – and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first in charge – when they face Villarreal in the Europa League final.

United’s last taste of silverware success came in the same competition under Jose Mourinho, with a 2-0 win over Ajax sealing their triumph, and current boss Solskjaer will hope for a similar outcome tonight.

It will not be an easy task, however, with Villarreal and Unai Emery looking to spring a shock. Emery is a three-time winner of the Europa League, and also reached the final with Arsenal in 2019.
