Man Utd find themselves in the EFL Cup final later this month against Newcastle with their first chance of silverware. Still in the FA Cup also, ten Hag will be hoping that his squad has the depth to attack on all fronts.
Victory in Camp Nou this evening would put them in a strong position to push for Europa League glory also. Having been axed from the Spanish national team prior to the Qatar World Cup, David de Gea will have a point to prove in Camp Nou this evening.
With all eyes on this huge clash, he can make a statement tonight. A clean sheet leading to a United victory would show what a mistake they made. After a home defeat against Real Sociedad in their opening Europa League, United then won five games on the bounce.
This form then led to the Red Devils going on a run of form in the Premier League too. That defeat cost them as the Spanish side pipped them to top-spot in the group. Amazingly, both sides have opted to play a left-back, at centre-back today.
Man Utd have opted to play Luke Shaw in the middle this evening despite having Harry Maguire on the bench. This could backfire massively on both managers if they were to lose this evening. Xavi makes a number of changes to the side due to the injuries of Sergio Busquets and Ousmane Dembele.
