    There are three changes to the United side that drew with Leeds last weekend.

    De Gea is back between the sticks, replacing Henderson.

    While youngsters James and Greenwood make way for experience in the shape of Pogba and Cavani.

    Rashford appears to have recovered from his foot injury.

    Meanwhile former United players Smalling and Mkhitaryan start for Roma at Old Trafford.

    Former City man Dzeko leads the charge this evening and will no-doubt be glad United fans aren't in attendance.

    In case you needed reminding…

    Here are United's ten Europa League goals so far

    Who is scoring for them this evening?

    If history is anything to go by, United have a strong chance this evening.

    Of their last seven meetings with Roma, they've only lost once.

    Mind you, all of those clashes were in the Champions League.

    Manchester United may be favourites to lift the Europa League trophy, but they have to welcome Roma, and several former players, to Old Trafford first.

    Added to that is the fact that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to have a thing about semi-finals.

    The Manchester United boss has lost his four previous semi-finals. But is this year his strongest chance of silverware?

    Solskjaer knows that the domestic title is heading to their neighbours and that this is his only chance to lift a trophy this season.

    Having won his last piece of silverware in 2013 with Molde, Solskjaer has claimed it would be a "dream come true" to win his first trophy as United boss.

    United will be without Anthony Martial this evening, but they do have a boost in the shape of Marcus Rashford.

    The forward has been suffering with a foot injury, but is in contention, so too is Eric Bailly who could make his first appearance in six weeks.

    Former United defender Chris Smalling has missed plenty of action for Roma with a thigh injury, but is expected to be deemed fit for his return this evening.

    Another familiar face likely to line up for Roma this evening is Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but United are probably more concerned with Edin Dzeko.

    The former Manchester City man enjoyed scoring plenty of goals against United while based in the city- can Harry Maguire and co keep him quiet this evening?
