Ten Hag reveals team news for Bayern tie

Monday 11 December 2023 12:16

Erik ten Hag has provided his Manchester United team news for Tuesday's UEFA Champions League tie with Bayern Munich.

The clash is a must-win one for the Reds, if we are to have any hope of reaching the knockout stages of the competition, as three points and a draw between FC Copenhagen and Galatasaray would see us progress in second spot behind Bayern.

After the 3-0 home reverse to Bournemouth on Saturday, there is a need to react positively in the 20:00 GMT kick-off, but the Bundesliga champions represent the toughest of opponents.

Tuesday's visitors have selected 19 players for the flight to Manchester.

Victor Lindelof is a doubt after missing the loss to the Cherries, with Luke Shaw starting in the middle, alongside Harry Maguire.

"It's a condensed programme," Ten Hag said at his press conference at Carrington. "We have training so, in this moment, I am not sure about everyone who is available for tomorrow but the question is over whether Victor Lindelof, whether he can make it or not. We will have to see tomorrow."

Lindelof was spotted in training afterwards but there was no Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, who is back from suspension in this competition, due to illness. 

Amad and Donny van de Beek are ineligible, while Casemiro has returned to the grass but is still unavailable, with the same to be said of Lisandro Martinez. The likes of Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Mason Mount have also been absent due to injury.


Thomas Tuchel has taken a 19-man squad to Manchester, without key forward Serge Gnabry, who picked up an injury in the 5-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt at the weekend.

Keeper Sven Ulreich and centre-back Matthijs De Ligt are also both absent but Harry Kane is one of a number of outstanding forwards available for the visitors, who have already clinched top spot in Group A.
