LONGFORD’S Jesse Lingard will start for Manchester United as they return to Europa League action tonight.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed the former William Beamont High School student would be in his 11 for the second leg of their last-16 clash with Austrian side LASK at Old Trafford.

With United 5-0 up from the first leg, it is a chance for Lingard and other fringe players to impress as they look to seal progress to a quarter-final tie with either Copenhagen or Istanbul Basaksehir.

For the midfielder himself, he will be aiming to finish the elongated 2019-20 season on a high after scoring in the final Premier League game of the season against Leicester on July 26.

"Jesse (Lingard) will be starting but the team won't be too different from the team that played LASK away," Solskjaer said sat alongside the attacking midfielder.

"We know it will be a difficult game. It wasn't a 5-0 difference between the teams, we were winning 2-0 after 60 minutes and scored three in the last five so we know we have to perform and there's opportunities for players to stake a claim, if they get through."

Tonight’s game kicks off at 8pm and is being shown live on BT Sport.
