Rio Ferdinand, Owen Hargreaves and Paul Scholes have all tipped Manchester United to win the Europa League final against Villarreal.
The Red Devils reached their first final under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after beating Serie A side Roma 8-5 on aggregate in an entertaining semi-final tie.
Spanish outfit Villarreal, meanwhile, booked their place in the May 26 final with a 2-1 victory over Arsenal, as Unai Emery got revenge over his former club.
