BREAKING: Manchester United training squad for FC Sheriff fixture as four players missing
Man United travel to Moldova for their first Europa League away game of the season against FC Sheriff.
Luke Shaw trained with the Manchester United squad on Wednesday morning ahead of their second Europa League group stage match against FC Sheriff.
Shaw has missed two of the last three games with a minor foot injury and Donny van de Beek was absent for the win over Arsenal and defeat to Real Sociedad. He was not in open training.
Van de Beek was a guest of former club Ajax for their Uefa Youth League tie against Liverpool in Kirkby on Tuesday afternoon.
Right-back Marc Jurado, 18, was part of United’s session again, having joined in with the first-team at the start of the week.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Marcus Rashford did not participate in the open session. 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. Anthony Martial is still out.
United fly to Chisinau later today and Erik ten Hag will chair his pre-match press conference later this evening.
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 trained again this morning.
United are certain to stray close to six years without a major trophy and the Europa League was the last competition they won in 2017.
Outfield United training squad vs Sheriff:
Jurado, Dalot, Lindelof, Varane, Martinez, Maguire, Shaw, Malacia, Iqbal, Casemiro, Fred, McTominay, Eriksen, Fernandes, Sancho, Shoretire, Elanga, Antony, Ronaldo, Garnacho, McNeill
