BREAKING: Manchester United squad vs FC Sheriff confirmed as five players missing
Man United have taken a 22-man squad to Moldova for their Europa League group stage game against FC Sheriff.
Manchester United have included Luke Shaw in their squad for the Europa League group stage match against FC Sheriff on Thursday night but five players are out.
Luke Shaw is back in the squad after missing two of the last three games with a minor foot injury but Donny van de Beek, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Marcus Rashford are all out after they did not participate in Wednesday morning’s training session.
Anthony Martial is still sidelined with an Achilles injury and Martin Dubravka has not travelled to the Moldova, so FA Youth Cup-winning ‘keeper Radek Vitek has been added to the squad.
Wan-Bissaka was named on the bench for the Sociedad defeat last week yet turned up in the directors’ box shortly before kick-off while Rashford was absent altogether. Van de Beek missed the win over Arsenal and defeat to Sociedad.
Right-back Marc Jurado, 18, was part of United’s training session on Wednesday morning, having joined in with the first-team at the start of the week but misses out on the travelling squad.
United fly to Chisinau later today and Erik ten Hag will chair his pre-match press conference this evening alongside a player.
Academy goalkeeper Radek Vitek, centre-back Tyler Fredricson, midfielders Zidane Iqbal and Kobbie Mainoo, as well as forwards Anthony Elanga, Shola Shoretire and Charlie McNeill were added to the United squad’s B list last week.
McNeill, who celebrated his 19th birthday on Friday, came on against Sociedad for his United debut and is in the squad again.
