Don't miss tonight's UEFA Europa League Final live from Gdansk as Unai Emery and Ole Gunnar Solskjear go head-to-head for European silverware

Manchester United make the trip to Gdansk tonight face off against Villarreal in the final game of the UEFA Europa League. Both teams are in mixed form domestically but have fantastic records in this competition. Since dropping down from the UEFA Champions League, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men have been unstoppable, cruising past the likes of AC Milan, Real Sociedad and Roma en route to this showpiece event. United Fans will be full of confidence with the likes of Edinson Cavani, Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba in their front line. Villarreal will also believe they have a very good chance of winning their first trophy in their 98 year existence. Coach Unai Emery led Sevilla to the trophy on three occasions and also took Arsenal to the final two years ago where they lost to Chelsea.

Preview: Villarreal vs Man United

It must have tasted sweet for Unai Emery to book The Yellow Submarine a place in the final by beating his former team Arsenal 2-1 on aggregate in the semi finals. The North London club unceremoniously dumped him despite him doing what we can now see in hindsight was a good job. He was roundly mocked by Arsenal fans and the media for his thick Spanish accent in interviews. Those same people were not laughing at the Emirates when a 0-0 stalemate in the second leg was enough for Villarreal to progress, thanks to first leg goals from Manu Trigueros and Raul Albiol. Before that they eliminated Dinamo Zagreb, who had just knocked out Jose Mourinho's Spurs. They also beat Dynamo Kyiv and RB Salzburg on their journey to the final. It's been another fantastic season for perennial Europa League winner Emery in Europe and few would bet against him pulling off another big win in a final tonight.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, on the other hand, is searching for his first major trophy as Manchester United boss and the club's first major silverware since they beat Ajax 2-0 to win this competition back in 2017 under Mourinho. Aside from a couple of Norwegian league titles and a cup with Molde, Solskjaer has yet to pick up any silverware and this could be a great chance to change that. On their way to the final they beat some huge names and did it in style. They beat Roma 8-5 on aggregate in their semi final, despite losing 3-2 in the second leg, navigated a possible banana skin against AC Milan and comfortably brushed aside Real Sociedad and Granada. It's been a fairly dominant European campaign for them so far post-Champions League. With the quality they have in the squad, they have to go into this game firm favourites, but they would be naïve to underestimate their opponents and in particular the tactical nous of their coach. If United can get the win it would represent a good season for them.

So, United have the biggest injury trauma with Harry Maguire, a key player for them, likely to be missing. Villarreal could be without a couple of players but nobody of equal importance to the way they play. On paper, The Red Devils should have far too much for their Spanish counterparts. In the dugout, Villarreal for sure have the more accomplished coach in Emery, a man who is an expert at winning this particular competition and more than capable of setting up a team to win against better opposition. It's tough to make a prediction for such a big game but I'm going to stick my neck out and go for a very narrow Villarreal win.

Prediction: Manchester United 1-2 Villarreal
