Confirmed: United's squad for Cyprus trip

Wednesday 05 October 2022 12:15

Erik ten Hag is taking 22 players to Cyprus for Manchester United's Europa League group game away to Omonia Nicosia.

The list features several changes from the party that travelled to Moldova in mid-September, with fit-again forwards Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford plus on-loan goalkeeper Martin Dubravka among the names added to it.

Ten Hag will clearly be hoping for a similar outcome to that previous overseas trip, as the Reds look to build on the comfortable 2-0 win over Sheriff Tiraspol.

Kick-off against Neil Lennon's Omonia side at the GSP Stadium in Nicosia is scheduled for 17:45 BST on Thursday , and the confirmed team line-up will be announced 75 minutes earlier on and in the United App.

De Gea, Heaton, Dubravka.

Lindelof, Martinez, Malacia, Dalot, Shaw.

Fernandes, Eriksen, Fred, Casemiro, McTominay, Iqbal.

Forwards: Ronaldo, Martial, Rashford, Antony, Sancho, Pellistri, Elanga, Garnacho.
Players absent from this trip include Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane, Donny van de Beek and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

When asked about the injured quartet in his pre-match press conference, held at Carrington this morning, Ten Hag said Varane is likely to return to action sooner than the others.
