Manchester United injury problems ease on eve of clash with Celta Vigo

Luke Shaw will not play again this season – Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho

Henrikh Mkhitaryan's first season at United has not been plain sailing - but his role in the Europa League has been crucial.

Celta Vigo knocked out the fancied Shakhtar in the last-32 stage and since then have eased past Krasnodar and Genk, with this competition seemingly their best opportunity of securing European qualification for next season as they're down in 11th in La Liga having lost five of their last six matches.

Celta did beat Barcelona 4-3 in October, so Manchester United should expect a tough test on Thursday night.

That's extremely good value indeed, considering that Manchester United are now priced at odds of only around 17/10 with most bookmakers to beat Celta Vigo on Thursday night in the Europa League.

There will be those who say that United should never have been in the Europa League in the first place, and Jose Mourinho will count himself among them.

Midfielders Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini will return to action against Celta.

Because of their situation in LaLiga, a comfortable situation, they manage to think just about the Europa League, to rest players, to be in the maximum of their condition so [it will be] a hard match for us.

However, the United boss has confirmed Sunday's start against Swansea was his 19th and final appearance of a hard campaign, having been forced off after just nine minutes.

Nashville Tops St. Louis
The last time the Ducks lost their first two at home, the Predators knocked them out of the first round a year ago in seven games. The Predators never got the man advantage in Game 2, and they got their first almost midway through the first period.

Only Juventus, Bayern Munich and Ajax have won all of UEFA's major competitions - the Champions League, UEFA Cup/Europa League and the defunct European Cup Winners' Cup - as well as being crowned world champions by winning the FIFA Club World Cup or its forerunner, the Inter-Continental Trophy.

"Chris Smalling and Phil Jones are back, and Paul Pogba", he told reporters.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo are recovering from knee ligament damage.

"It's a hard game for us", said Mourinho.

'In relation to the Premier League I think it's too late because in the past month we played nine matches, seven of them in the Premier League. Marouane Fellaini is also available as his ban only means he can not play domestic matches.

"Mata was injured for a while, but he is ready to play", Mourinho said. So when you arrive in the semi-final you want to be in the final'.

"Whenever I started the season at Liverpool, my mentality was to play 40 to 50 games, because it meant I was playing every week and was being successful".

But it is obvious that he still holds City close to his heart and will hopefully "keep the city blue" as he puts it when Celta face United in Europe's secondary competition.
