Manchester United have named a 24-man squad to travel to Italy to face Roma tomorrow night.

Dan James has been ruled out through injury, which means the 23-year-old will stay at home.

But youngster Anthony Elanga will be involved again and the forward could make his full debut.

The club’s official website listed the full squad: De Gea, Henderson, Grant, Bishop, Lindelof, Bailly, Maguire, Shaw, Telles, Tuanzebe, Wan-Bissaka, Williams, Amad, Fernandes, Fred, Mata, Matic, McTominay, Pogba, van de Beek, Cavani, Elanga, Greenwood, Rashford.


It’s always good to see Marcus Rashford in the squad, meaning there have been no flare ups on his long-standing injuries.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has the opportunity to rest and rotate, given the 6-2 first leg lead.


But of course United didn’t play on Sunday against Liverpool, so they’ve had a week off to prepare.

That may mean Solskjaer names a strong side and of course he will be mindful of the need to do a professional job.

Elanga does have a chance of making his debut, if the tie is beyond doubt in the closing stages.

United have five subs to call upon and Solskjaer may use them all to keep his side fresh if it’s job done late on.

James’ pace would have been useful on the break, and he might have been in the frame to start if Solskjaer was thinking about making changes.

But this is a squad which is more than good enough to get the job done and take United one step closer to their first trophy under Solskjaer.
