Ajax v Manchester United preview

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly is suspended for the Europa League final against Ajax on Wednesday.

The defender was handed a straight red card towards the end of the semi-final, second leg against Celta Vigo and will not be available in Stockholm.

United are bidding to win the competition for the first time in the club's history, while Ajax are seeking their first major European trophy since 1995.

The winner of Wednesday's final will also earn a place in the group stage of next season's Champions League.

Jose Mourinho rested several of United's big names on Sunday as they ended their Premier League season with a 2-0 home win over Crystal Palace.

Ajax finished their Eredivisie campaign with a 3-1 win at Willem II, where they fielded the youngest starting XI in league history with an average age of 20 years and 139 days.

UEFA have moved to reassure fans that stringent security measures will be in place at the Friends Arena following Monday's terror attack in Manchester.

Bailly is suspended, while Mourinho has confirmed Sergio Romero will keep his place in goal over David de Gea.

A serious knee injury prevents Zlatan Ibrahimovic playing in his home country, while Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young and Luke Shaw are long-term absentees.

Marouane Fellaini (hamstring) and Chris Smalling (toe) trained on the eve of the match after sitting out the Premier League finale against Palace.

Ajax will be without suspended Nick Viergever, while fellow defender Daley Sinkgraven has resumed training after a recent knee injury but is not deemed ready to feature.

Davy Klaassen will skipper Peter Bosz's side, with Chelsea loanee Bertrand Traore set to line-up in attack.
