It has been a hectic period for Man United fans, and the owners finally decided to sack club legend and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following a 4-1 thrashing at relegation-battling Watford.
Michael Carrick will be the interim manager, and this is possibly one of their biggest games of the season.
This is the second last game of the group stage, and even though they sit top on seven points, they are only two points away from 3rd and four points away from bottom.
Villarreal will feel confident they can pick up the victory and whoever wins between the two on the night will sit top of the group.
