Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side fell to a disappointing defeat against Young Boys on the opening day two weeks ago and they have just lost their last two games on the spin in domestic competitions. This week they face Villarreal, the side they lost last season’s UEFA Europa League final to and Unai Emery will be hoping to orchestrate another victory over the Red Devils.
