Well we await news from yesterday but it doesn't appear that there's any fresh injuries to report the fact Carrick played the full game would suggest he'll be dropping down to the bench for this one and you would assume the more regular first team players will return along with Fellaini who isn't banned so is almost guaranteed to start.
Predicted Starting XI
Valencia Bailly Blind Darmian
Fellaini Herrera Pogba
Mkhitaryan Rashford Lingard
I think it will be something like that we don't have a lot of options, Mkhitaryan has been in good form in the Europa League so I guess he will start, Rashford you assume is nailed on as the CF then the other side could be anyone from Lingard, Mata, Rooney. I'd probably start Lingard as the other 2 maybe give you more options off the bench.
My prediction is a very nervy 1-0 win can see if being tight and Utd getting a late goal.
OK so... I don't want to be "that guy" and I don't want to be Mr Negative... But does anyone else have a bad feeling about this?
We played superbly last week away from home. We really should have come away with more than the 1 goal lead. But we didn't and that's what makes me nervous.
Celta are a good team, they showed last week that they will create good chances and they are very much alive in this tie. And with the way we have been playing at home and the problems we have had with being clinical it's got to be playing on most of our minds right?
If we are focused on the task I think we will be ok, if we go out thinking we will win easy then we are in trouble.
An early goal would be huge in this one but we probably thought that vs Anderlecht.
Hopefully the players don't start dropping like flies, needs a big performance from Pogba again he has to dictate this game and create the chances hopefully this time our attackers take them. That feels like a broken record this season though.
I would be a lot more apprehensive if it was a draw from the first leg, but I think an early goal will be the best thing for us because it'll draw Celta out and they'll have to push on. Then we should have opportunities to pick them off and with Pogba back and Rashford in top form I'm pretty confident.
