Reaction

The big news is that Harry Maguire is in and does travel. He has been out injured for the past fortnight.

There is still no guarantee he will play, but he has a small chance, and it will be important for the club captain to travel and help his side behind the scenes even if he is not fit.

The other big piece of news is Anthony Martial’s absence. The Frenchman has not recovered from his knee injury in time to be considered.

Martial was last week left out of France’s Euro 2020 squad too, but Solskjaer had said he hoped he would be fit for the Europa League final.

Youngsters Shoretire, Amad and Elanga are all in. Hannibal is not included as he is ineligible.
