Villarreal Vs Real Madrid Live Online Commentary
Manchester United are coming into the EFL Cup final in high moods after picking up their 5th consecutive victory on Wednesday in the UEFA Europa League. The form, player performances and moral is looking good. But fatigue could become an issue as the Mourinho’s men were already involved in 4 fixtures inside 15 days. The major blow for united will be absence of Armenian winger Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who is ruled out of the final due to an injury. But the skipper Wayne Rooney could be available to start the match. He scored in the 2010 final against Aston Villa, the last time United won this trophy.
Meanwhile, the Saints were having rest ahead of this game as their last competitive fixture was on 11th February against Sunderland. They won 4-0 in the trip to the Stadium of Light, ending a disastotous three game losing streak. However, Southampton have been pretty inconsistent throughout the campaign. Their problem is the inability to perform at a consistent level throughout the entire 90 minutes of a match. As regards injury news: Sofiane Boufal is unlikely to take part here, with Matt Targett, Charlie Austin, Alex McCarthy, Virgil van Dijk, and Jeremy Pied also sidelined.
