Manchester United host LASK Linz as they continue their quest for the Europa League. They already have one foot in the quarter finals as they won the first leg 5-0 before lockdown. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has set his eyes on winning some silverware after qualifying for the Champions League next season.

The Red Devils put in an excellent performance in Austria as they thrashed LASK 5-0 with goals from Odion Ighalo, Daniel James, Juan Mata, Andreas Pereira and Mason Greenwood.

LASK have won just two of their last ten league games upon returning to action in June. They also lost their last three league matches to finish fourth in the Austrian Bundesliga.
