Europa League 6/5/2021 – Arsenal v Villareal

  • Kieran Tierney and Alexandre Lacazette both took part in full training on Tuesday in a big boot for Arsenal.
  • Mikel Arteta rested a whole load of players at the weekend and will recall the likes of Bernd Leno, Bukayo Saka and Thomas Partey here.
  • Dani Ceballos is suspended for the home side after his red card in the first leg. With Granit Xhaka expected to start at left-back, Mohamed Elneny has a decent chance of starting on Thursday.
  • Given Nicolas Pepe’s form in the Europa League this season, only one of Martin Odegaard or Emile Smith Rowe will likely start on Thursday. Given Odegaard started against Newcastle, it appears the latter will get the nod here.
  • Former Watford midfielder Etienne Capoue misses out on a return to England after his red card in the first leg. Ex-Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin has a decent change of starting as a result.
  • Tottenham loanee Juan Foyth picked up an injury in the first leg and then missed out at the weekend raising major doubts over his availability on Thursday.
  • The Spanish side at least had Pervis Estupinan, Paco Alcacer and Ruben Pena available against Getafe at the weekend.
  • Alcacer surprisingly started against Getafe on Sunday raising the prospect of Carlos Bacca coming into the starting XI here.

Europa League 6/5/2021 – Roma v Manchester United

  • Roma lost Pau Lopez, Jordan Veretout and Leonardo Spinazzola to injury in the first half of their 6-2 defeat to Manchester United last weekend. Lopez has been ruled out for the remainder of the season, with Veretout also unlikely to feature here. Spinazzola caused United real problems prior to his injury and the Italian side will hope he makes the return leg.
  • Antonio Mirante replaced Lopez in goal last week and made an error for one of United’s goals, while Daniel Fuzato made his first start of the season in goal at the weekend and also made an error leading to an opposition goal. Not great heading into Thursday.
  • Roma have recovered Gianluci Mancini from suspension if Paulo Fonseca wants to make changes from a side that shipped six goals last time out.
  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should really play his reserves on Thursday after Manchester United won 6-2 on Thursday night. Even more so as United play on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday next week. However, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Solskjaer went strong against Roma given he has failed at the semi-final stage four times already as United manager.
  • Donny van de Beek, Nemanja Matic, Alex Telles, Eric Bailly and Mason Greenwood stand the best chance of recalls on Thursday from those that didn’t start the first leg, but Dan James is injured and hasn’t travelled.
