Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has provided the latest on his plans for our Europa League away tie against Omonia Nicosia.

The boss faced the media at Carrington before flying out with his squad for Thursday's 17:45 BST kick-off in Cyprus.

After defenders Raphael Varane, Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, plus midfielder Donny van de Beek, were missing from the morning's open training session at Carrington, their injury situation was one of the first topics posed to Erik during the briefing.

"They are unavailable for tomorrow," said Ten Hag of the aforementioned quartet.

"Yes, in the case of Rapha, I have good hope [that he comes back soon].

"Harry will take a little bit longer. The other two, I cannot give a prognosis."

The manager added that everybody else is training well and, of course, he will have plenty of options in attack, with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial fit again.

We hope to announce the travelling squad in full this afternoon.


Brazilian winger Bruno is in cracking form for the hosts and will be a man to watch as he looks to continue his run of goals.

There are some familiar faces in contention for a place in Neil Lennon's XI, such as ex-Celtic striker Gary Hooper and former Manchester City youngster Brandon Barker.
