Revealed: Our travelling squad for Milan

Wednesday 17 March 2021 12:44

Manchester United have named the travelling squad for Thursday's crucial Europa League second leg against AC Milan, although there was a late pre-flight change.

The first leg at Old Trafford finished 1-1 following a late Rossoneri equaliser, but the Reds have been handed a lift in recent days, with several prominent first-teamers returning to training after injury.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team are due to fly from Manchester to the Italian fashion capital on Wednesday afternoon, and the boss will be delighted he has a few more options available to him.

David De Gea is back in the squad after taking paternity leave to witness the birth of his first child, while Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek return to bolster our midfield flexibility. Edinson Cavani suffered a reaction to the final session, so was removed from the original list, and fellow striker Anthony Martial has not overcome the injury he picked up in the first leg.
Juan Mata also misses out, but the squad is buttressed by Amad, who scored his first United goal at Old Trafford last Thursday.
Other absentees from the squad for the first game are Nathan BishopEric Bailly and Shola Shoretire, who will stay in the United Kingdom.

De Gea, Henderson, Grant; Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Telles, Tuanzebe, Wan-Bissaka, Williams; Amad, Fernandes, Fred, James, Matic, McTominay, Pogba, van de Beek; Greenwood, Rashford.
