Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made just two changes to the starting lineup as Manchester United prepare to take on Sevilla in the UEFA Europa League semi-final.
The stage is set as the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League begins tonight. Manchester United lock horns with Sevilla in Cologne in the first of the two Last 4 ties, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has chosen to make a couple of changes to the side that started in the quarter-final against FC Copenhagen.
The first shuffle comes in goal, as David de Gea comes in for Sergio Romero, in a throwback to Solskjaer’s decision in the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea. The Spaniard will be protected by a back four, which sees the second and only change of the night.

Victor Lindelof comes in for Eric Bailly at the heart of the Manchester United defence, with captain Harry Maguire his partner. Brandon Williams and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, meanwhile, continue as the full-back pairing for Manchester United against Sevilla. Up ahead in midfield, Solskjaer has chosen to stick with Fred, which comes off as a surprising decision.
The Brazilian takes his place in the midfield double pivot ahead of Nemanja Matic again, partnering Paul Pogba, while Bruno Fernandes reprises the no. 10 role. Finally, in attack, the first-choice trio of Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood starts again, with Martial leading the line for Manchester United against Sevilla, while Rashford and Greenwood are the two wide men.
