The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling pretty anxious about their side’s clash with Celta Vigo this evening…
A game with unparalleled significance, the Red Devils have placed all their hope into the Europa League in search of Champions League football next season – with Jose Mourinho prioritising Thursday evening’s clash over the Premier League.
A win, of course, will see Man Utd move into the Europa League final, whilst a loss will see them crash out of the competition. In every aspect, this game is a season-defining one – and a loss could very well have long-standing ramifications for Jose Mourinho and his players.
In the build-up to the game, though, Man Utd have received an injury boost – with Ben Dinnery revealing on Twitter that the duo of Antonio Valencia and Eric Bailly could be back in the fold for the Red Devils.

This is a huge boost for the Red Devils, as both players are crucial to the defensive strength of Jose Mourinho’s side.
Man Utd are taking a 1-0 lead into the game, following on from Marcus Rashford’s impressive goal in the first leg, and so it is important that Mourinho’s defence is on form as they look to hold on to that lead.
