Man Utd squad and team news

Manchester United won’t  feature Brandon Williams and Harry Maguire. Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have started to train with the squad and could feature at some point in the match.

“We have some doubts with Anthony [Martial], but he was training all week with the group, so I’m really happy with that situation. He is performing really well; he makes a good impression. Marcus also joined training, so we are happy with that,” informed Ten Hag.

Victor Lindelof is available once again and the defender played for Sweden during the international break.
