Manchester United welcome Young Boys later today for the final match of their group stages encounter
Although having qualified into the knockout stages, today’s game against Villarreal is a very important one for Ralf Rangnick who has stressed on the importance of winning games.
According to the German, maintaining a winning streak will help boost the team confidence which is the most important team to him at the moment.
The former Leipzig boss is yet to have Paul Pogba in his line up with the Frenchman working hard to make it back into the 11.
Pogba is expected to renew his contract with the club and United are on the other hand ready to lose him as a free agent instead of selling him off.
Cristiano Ronaldo netted a sensational goal the last United encountered Young Boys and will be expected to be in the line up today when Ralf Rangnick picks his 11.
Harry Maguire appears to be getting a night off as Ralf Rangnick picks a replacement for the captaincy role.
This also entails a starting opportunity for Eric Bailly who have been out of action for a while.
Unlike prior the Crystal Palace game, Luke Shaw, Raphael Varane, Jesse Lingard and Edinson Cavani were all present at Carrington ahead of United’s Young Boys game.
“I haven’t finally decided, to be honest,” Ralf replied, when asked about his selection for the 20:00 GMT kick-off.
“It definitely makes sense that we rest a few players due to the crowded fixture list over the next few weeks and months.
“We need to make sure we have enough recovery as possible, also for the Premier League, but, on the other hand, we need to keep our positive momentum.
“Our ethos is to win games, even if we maybe play with a few new players, fresh players, it’s still important we win the game. We definitely want to win the game.”
Anthony Martial has also joined his fellow Frenchman, Paul Pogba on the sideline following an injury.
