Thursday 05 September 2019 14:30

Manchester United's squad for the 2019/20 UEFA Europa League group stage has been confirmed.

The Reds are in Group L, alongside Astana, AZ Alkmaar and Partizan Belgrade, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men enter the competition we won in 2016/17.

We begin with a home match on Thursday 19 September, against Kazakhstan Premier League outfit Astana. Tickets are currently available for this opening encounter at Old Trafford, which kicks off at 20:00 BST.

United discover European opponents


Dates and times for our six Europa League group fixtures have now been confirmed.

Due to the tournament rules, the squad is broken down into four sections: A List, Club Trained, Association Trained and B List.

Please note that the B List is not presented below, as it may contain an unlimited number of players and is made up of homegrown youngsters who can be called upon during the competition.

The B List players are in addition to the following 24 names who have been registered with UEFA by the club:


Eric Bailly, Diogo Dalot, David De Gea, Fred, Daniel James, Matej Kovar, Victor Lindelof, Anthony Martial, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic, Marcos Rojo, Sergio Romero.


Jesse Lingard, Scott McTominay, Andreas Pereira, Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw, Axel Tuanzebe.


Lee Grant, Phil Jones, Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Ashley Young.

Luke Shaw joined United as a teenager from Southampton.

Matej Kovar, the young Czech goalkeeper, is on the A List because he is not yet eligible for the B List, having arrived at United's Academy in January 2018.

Luke Shaw is considered Club Trained, despite signing from Southampton, because the criteria includes players who have been registered with the club for 36 months between the ages of 15 and 21. The left-back was aged 18 when he joined the Reds in June 2014.
