Unfortunately for United, it's unlikely that captain Harry Maguire will be fit to start the final at centre-back.
The England defender is still recovering from his ankle injury and will want to make sure he is in tip-top shape for the Three Lions at this summer's Euros.
David de Gea should start in goal ahead of Dean Henderson, while Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof take command at the back.
Edinson Cavani should start up top for the Red Devils.
Villarreal are waiting to hear if Juan Foyth will be fit for the final, while goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo could start ahead of the shaky Geronimo Rulli.
Etienne Capoue could make the Spanish side's XI in midfield in place of Francis Coquelin, with Dani Parejo also expected to play in the middle of the park.

Villarreal haven't been at the top of their game in La Liga this season.
But in Europe they've excelled, beating Arsenal in the last round 2-1 on aggregate.
They were beaten by Real Madrid on the final day of the regular season – but only after the title chasers scored twice in the final four minutes.
Man Utd meanwhile are on a sticky run themselves, with one win in their last four games.
They were superb against Roma in the semi-final first leg, but were exposed after taking their foot off the gas in the Italian capital.
If you can expect anything tonight, it's goals.

2,000 fans are in Poland to cheer on their Man Utd heroes as the Premier League side take on Villarreal for the Europa League crown.
It was 2017 the last time the Red Devils lifted this trophy, when they cruised past Ajax 2-0 in Sweden.
