Manchester United will face AS Roma in the Europa League semi-final. Ole Solkjaer’s men beat Granada 3-1 on aggregate –to set up a reunion with the familiar faces of Henrik Mkhitaryan and Chris Smalling.

Man United are looking to win the Europa League for only the second time, however, they must get past Roma in the next round. The Red devils had crashed out of all four semi-finals they’ve reached under Solkjaer in all competitions. Will they be fifth-time lucky?
