Manchester United take a commanding lead into tonight's Europa League round-of-16 second leg against LASK at Old Trafford.

Goals from Odion Ighalo, Daniel James, Juan Mata, Mason Greenwood and Andreas Pereira in Austria mean United are already guaranteed of a place in the last eight. United will face either Istanbul Basaksehir or Copenhagen in the next round in Cologne on August 10, with the second leg of that game taking place in Denmark tonight.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed Jesse Lingard will start tonight's match with Luke Shaw and Axel Tuanzebe the only injury absentees. Youngsters Teden Mengi and Ethan Laird could also be involved in some capacity given the current aggregate scoreline. The United boss suggested he would name a similar team to the side that won so comfortably in the away leg.

Kick off at Old Trafford is at 8pm.

Stay tuned for the latest team news and score updates.

A good omen?

Manchester United will confirm their place in the last eight of the competition by avoiding disaster tonight.

The last time the Reds reached the quarter-final stage of the competition, they went on to secure the trophy under Jose Mourinho three years ago.

Score prediction

United have been backed to record another heavy victory tonight.

Former Reds forward Michael Owen believes they will run out 3-0 winners.

He told BetVictor:

"The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last 13 UEFA Europa League home games and have registered four wins out of four at Old Trafford this season, scoring 13 goals and conceding none.

"It’s difficult to see anything other than another tough night for the Austrian team and I am going for another clean sheet and easy victory for Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s men in this one. Manchester United to win 3-0."

Prediction: United 3-0 LASK

United rotation policy

It's fair to say Solskjaer has used the Europa League to rotate his squad and keep players fit for their Premier League matches.

United have used 35 different players during this season's competition, seven more than any other side.

Expect that rotation to continue tonight but the strongest side should be named in the latter stages as United seek more European glory.
