Having been knocked out of the FA Cup by Leicester, and with Manchester City on the brink of claiming the Premier League title, the Europa League represents United’s one remaining chance of silverware this season as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to claim his first trophy since taking charge.
United overcame Italian giants AC Milan in the previous round to reach this stage, while Granada, who are currently ninth in LaLiga, beat Solskjaer’s former club Molde 3-2 on aggregate, despite losing the second leg of their last-16 tie.
