For United, David De Gea seems to be a doubtful prospect, while Juan Mata and Phil Jones are out with injuries. The United shot-stopper is in Spain to celebrate the birth of his first child, news of which he announced via a tweet. Dean Henderson is expected to start for Solskjaer’s side between the sticks.

Hakan Calhanoglu, Ismael Bennacer, and Mario Mandzukic could all return for the tie against United, despite the trio currently recovering from minor injuries. However, former United star Zlatan Ibrahimović is expected to be ruled out of the first leg which is a big blow for the Milan club.

Manchester United vs AC Milan prediction

United might have at times struggled to find the net, but they should be favorites going into this tie. Zlatan’s towering presence in the box would be a big miss for the Italians, who could have caused plenty of troubles for the English side. The big Swede would be missed owing to a thigh problem, and Solskjaer’s side should be able to see the game through, owing to their recent form.
