United confirm Europa League squad
Manchester United have named a 25-man squad for the Europa League group-stage campaign.
The list of players to face Omonia Nicosia, Real Sociedad and Sheriff Tiraspol in Group E is not exhaustive as those on the 'B' list can still be added on a match-by-match basis.
This includes the likes of Anthony Elanga, with UEFA rules stating that club-trained players born after 1 January 2001 do not have to be counted as part of the main group.
UEFA defines club-trained players as ‘those who have been eligible to play for the club concerned for any uninterrupted period of two years since his 15th birthday by the time he is registered with UEFA – or for a total of three consecutive years with a maximum of one loan period to a club from the same association for a period not longer than one year.
‘Players aged 16 may be submitted if they have been registered with the club for the previous two years without interruption.’
Defenders Phil Jones and Brandon Williams are currently unavailable and have not been selected based on their respective recovery timescales.
United's six summer signings have all been named and are therefore available to play against Real Sociedad in Thursday's opener at Old Trafford, with kick-off at 20:00 BST.
We then travel to Moldova on 15 September to take on Sheriff, before a double-header with Cypriot side Omonia in October.
Sheriff visit Old Trafford towards the back end of next month, with the away game against La Real closing out the group stage on 3 November.
