Man United vs Villarreal

The 2021 Europa League final is set to play out this evening.

Manchester and Villarreal will battle it out in this season’s showpiece at the Polsat Plus Arena Gdańsk in Poland.

After finishing 7th in La Liga this season, Villarreal’s only way into the Champions League next campaign is by winning the Europa League.

And the Spaniards will no doubt fancy their chances of doing so with Europa League specialist, Unai Emery, at the helm.

Emery has won the competition three times and also guided Arsenal to the final in 2019.

Man United, meanwhile, really need to clinch this trophy to show that some progress has in fact been made under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Norwegian did mange to finish second with United in the league this season.

But his points total of 74 is still behind the 81 Jose Mourinho managed back in 2017/18, which remains United’s highest points total since Sir Alex Ferguson left.

Solskjaer is also yet to win any silverware after two- and a-bit seasons as manager, whereas Mourinho and Louis van Gaal were able to do so in less or similar time in the job.
