    It won't be long now until Carrick names his first United team-sheet.

    The former England midfielder has already revealed he is 'clear in his own mind' who will start – but just who will make the grade?

    Here's how SunSport is predicting the Red Devils line-up tonight, with the XI confirmed around 4.45pm GMT.

    He was always known as a steady hand on tiller and boy do Man Utd need someone to navigate them safely through this current storm.

    Michael Carrick opened up on Ole's sacking yesterday in his first press conference before the team flew out to Spain.

    He said: "

    First of all it's been an emotional time for everyone at club. I worked with Ole for three years and known him for a lot longer.

    "Knowing the person that he is, the values that he has, how he treats people. To see him lose his job was tough for me and a lot of people at the club. I think you can tell from the emotion yesterday what he meant to everyone.

    "Results are everything, as much as you build the right environment you don't get what you deserve. A massive thank you from us all."

    Well, sort of.

    Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's Man Utd reign is over, with the Red Devils legend dismissed on Sunday after a humiliating 4-1 defeat to Watford.

    It follows a barren domestic run for United, but in Europe they've been kept afloat by Cristiano Ronaldo's uncanny ability to score in stoppage time.

    So now under the caretaker tutelage of Michael Carrick, United take on Europa League winners Villarreal tonight in Spain.

    The Yellow Submarine aren't enjoying the best of season's in La Liga, but showed at Old Trafford in their 2-1 defeat that they are serious contenders for the knockouts.

    And that has been demonstrated by back-to-back wins over Young Boys and Atalanta, making this a huge game in the context of Group F.

    For the winners, most likely qualification and the pressure off going into Gameweek 6. For the losers, all very much to play for.

    Kick-off in Spain is set for 5.45pm, so settle in for some tea-time football right here on SunSport.
