Players to Watch

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Whether he starts or comes off the bench, he will be the man to watch against his old club as Milan try to buck this trend of poor performances at home in 2021. The striker has the fortitude to score a match winner and build some momentum for the club as they seem to be running on fumes for the moment. The striker will be expected to disturb Maguire and overpower him.

Marcus Rashford

Another player who missed the first leg of the tie. Rashford will look to cause a lot of problems where Martial was rather quiet. Kjaer and Tomori will need to cut him off before he is allowed the space to run or to shoot as that is where he excels. The extra support from the CDMs will also be vital to ensuring he doesn’t trouble Gigio.

Theo Hernandez

Theo is turning into a wild card for us. On the one hand, he scores equalisers, winner and puts in incredible crosses and assists. On the other hand, he has poor positioning, is easily beaten in defence and is slow to track back. The Napoli game was lost because of his error where Politano easily took advantage of him on the counter. In this game, that is a risk with quick players coming down the wing.

Prediction: Milan 2 - 1 United
