Ole admits to selection dilemma on Wednesday for Europa League final

When asked if he had a dilemma regarding the pair, Ole replied: “Yeah, you might say so. Both of them have done really well but we’ll see. We’ll pick a team that I think will make problems for Villarreal but, luckily, I could rest both of them today. They’ll both be knocking on my door [laughs].”

If Harry Maguire is ruled out then there will also be a decide made of who will presumably partner Victor Lindelof at the heart of the back four, although the skipper is still being given a chance to prove he can make it, despite suffering ankle-ligament damage against Aston Villa recently.

”I’ll wait for Wednesday,“ stressed the manager. ”Maybe see if he can run on Tuesday. He’s a bit away so I don’t expect him to be ready, no. Of course, Harry wants to play. It’s going to be up to the doctor to say how he is. As I’ve said, I don’t expect him to be ready. But I’m forever an optimist and still hopeful.

“He has to train on Tuesday when we’re over there. So it’s not many days. I don’t expect him to be ready.”
