However, Manchester United will head into Thursday’s game after ending their five-game winning streak. They were held to a goalless draw by Leeds United last weekend. They still retain their no.2 position on the table.


Manchester United will welcome back a few key players. Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay and club captain Harry Maguire return after serving their one-match suspensions in the quarter-final second leg. Marcus Rashford also returned to action on Sunday after recovering from a foot injury.

Manchester United Predicted XI (4-2-3-1):

Dean Henderson, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay, Fred, Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani

The two sides have been solid at both ends of the pitch this season and this is likely to be a close contest.

However, considering Manchester United come into this encounter in better form, we expect them to grab another victory.

Prediction: Manchester United 2-1 Roma
