Manchester United have revealed which squad members have travelled to Russia prior to Thursday’s Europa League last 16 tie with FC Rostov. The first leg, which kicks off at 6pm BST will see Jose Mourinho’s side looking to build on their 4-0 aggregate victory over Saint-Etienne in the last round and progress further in a competition that they’ve never won, either in its current format, or when it was referred to as the UEFA Cup.
According to Manutd.com, the travelling squad is as follows:
De Gea, Romero, O’Hara; Valencia, Jones, Rojo, Smalling, Blind, Darmian, Young; Carrick, Herrera, Fellaini, Pogba, Mata, Lingard, Mkhitaryan; Martial, Rashford, Ibrahimovic.
Notable absentees from this list are Luke Shaw and Wayne Rooney, who both started Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Bournemouth at Old Trafford, and Bastian Schweinsteiger, who wasn’t in the squad for last weekend’s game. Henrikh Mkhitaryan returns having been injured in United’s 0-1 win over Saint-Etienne two weeks ago.
