It's a game Manchester United dare not lose.

Victory against Ajax in Stockholm's Friends Arena tomorrow night would not only mean claiming the only trophy to have eluded United during their illustrious history — it would also secure the Champions League qualification that is so important in terms of summer signings, and write off a disappointing Premier League campaign.

Injuries have hampered José Mourinho's side in recent months, and the Red Devils still boast a significant list of absentees.

Top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimović, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw and Ashley Young will all miss out through injury, while Marouane Fellaini is also a slight doubt after suffering a hamstring injury. Eric Bailly will also be unavailable following his red card in the semi-final second-leg tie with Celta Vigo.

Fellaini is expected to be fit in time for tomorrow night's clash, though Michael Carrick could come into the side if he's ruled out of the Manchester United starting XI.

Elsewhere, Mourinho has confirmed Sergio Romero will be in goal — as he has been for the majority of United's Europa League games this season.

Phil Jones and Chris Smalling could be paired together in defence, but the fact that the former played 90 minutes against Crystal Palace on Sunday suggests he won't feature from the start against Ajax. We expect Daley Blind to come in alongside Smalling, with Matteo Darmian dropping in at left-back.

Mourinho has a number of options going forward, but we anticipate Anthony Martial, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata to miss out on a starting place in favour of the three that faced Celta Vigo in both legs of the semi-final: Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Henrik Mkhitaryan.

It's been a difficult season for United, with a lot of games and injuries to key players hampering their progress under the Portuguese manager. Tomorrow night his squad have to make just one final big push to put it all right.
