Manchester United’s final away match of the Premier League season sees Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Reds head to West Yorkshire to face already relegated Huddersfield Town.

The Terriers’ fate was confirmed at the end of March but they are hoping to end the season on a high before returning to the Championship. David Wagner began the season at the helm before leaving at the turn of the year and being replaced by former Borussia Dortmund II head coach, Jan Siewert.

With the Reds still in contention for a place in the top four, this is once again a vitally important game if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side want to secure a Champions League berth for next season.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of this weekend’s fixture…

WHAT’S THE TEAM NEWS?

Eric Bailly will miss the rest of the season and the Africa Cup of Nations after the Ivorian injured his knee in last weekend’s 1-1 draw against Chelsea.

However, Marcus Rashford trained with the first team on Wednesday, despite his withdrawal against the Blues with a shoulder problem. The Englishman was substituted by Solskjaer in Sunday’s game after an hour, but the 21-year-old is seemingly on track to play again at Huddersfield.

Phil Jones, who hasn’t played since the first half of last month’s clash with Everton, could also return after being sidelined with a knock while Ander Herrera is back in the swing of things after he made his return from injury in the Chelsea game.

Academy youngsters Tahith Chong, James Garner, Angel Gomes and Lee O’Connor have also been taking part in first-team training and will hope for a chance to impress in our final two matches.

Ole could provide a full update on the fitness of his squad in Friday’s pre-match press conference.
