Manchester United play Villarreal in the Champions League at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
United lost the opening game of their new Champions League campaign with a 2-1 defeat against BSC Young Boys and they’ve since been knocked out of the Carabao Cup and lost their Premier League unbeaten record against Aston Villa.
There’s reason for optimism, though, because United are still level on points with Manchester City and Chelsea in the league standings while leaders Liverpool are just one point ahead – a positive result against Villarreal will ensure United regain momentum once again.
“You expect what you have learned in the last few seasons,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said when asked about the Spaniards.
“We have played each other five times, every time has been a draw. Very well organised, technically very good. They can play from the back. It is hard to press against them, which I thought we did well in the final.
“Difficult to create chances against and we have to be better to create chances. It was an even final.”
