We used FIFA 17 to predict what would happen when Man U play Ajax tonight

Can Jose Mourinho's men take the Red Devils back to the Champions League?

Manchester United take on Ajax tonight in the Europa League final – so what better time to use FIFA 17 to see who’ll emerge the winner.

To do this, we put the match on ‘Legendary’ then assigned both teams to the CPU.

Could Jose Mourinho’s men return to the Champions League? Or will Ajax break their hearts.

Here’s the full match report…

The teams shake hands before kick off – United are clearly up for the game and look to attack from the off

2min: Ajax have seen more of the ball so far. Hakim Ziyech is starting to try his luck down the left flank
6: What the hell just happened? Eric Bailly glitches and gets disposed by Davy Klaassen in the BOX, who then shanks it wide of David De Gea. Huge opportunity missed by Ajax. Also, sort it out EA
8: Marcus Rashford finally gets the ball and surges forward before feeding Antonio Valencia. Henrikh Mkhitaryan whips a cross in but it’s easily headed away
16: Ander Herrera’s having another solid game in midfield – he picks out Rashford well but the youngster’s well marshalled

32: Anthony Martial goes on a trademark charge down the flank and feeds in a cross – but it’s well defended. United need a new tactic
40: Wayne Rooney tries to find Rashford on the break but fails
43: The ball falls to Rooney again, he lined up and shoots. ***GOAL!*** What a brilliant finish from the United veteran – top right corner. André Onana had no chance. Rooney celebrates by shivering and running around in circles.

46: Rooney’s really up for this – and gets straight into the thick of things from the off
52: Martial pops up in midfield – picks out Mkhitaryan, who feeds Valencia. Sadly, his poor cross goes straight to a defender
58: Rooney’s once again at the centre of everything good for United. He finds Rashford in the box who’s disposed by a player who… seems to go through him? Literally
61: Juan Mata replaces Rooney – not sure why, he’s been their best player

64: ‘ave it! Mata’s first touch is to hoof it down the pitch. More of that please, Juan. Not.

68: Herrera comes off for Marouane Fellaini – obviously Mourinho wants to defend the lead. Or give away a penalty. I can’t tell.
79: Martial gets through, feeds Mata – back to Martial who forces a decent save from Onana (what’s my name, Onana, what’s my name?).

81: Martial off for Ashley Young… really, Jose?
85: Paul Pogba who has literally done nothing this match apart from run round in circles. Still, he picks out Mkhitaryan beautifully. The Armenian makes a rather strange bee-line towards the corner flag before losing it on the edge of the box
90That’s all, folks – United win 1-0. The crowd cheer as Rooney is awarded the man of the match. Rightly, so.
