Manchester United have confirmed a 22-man squad that will travel to face Sheriff Tiraspol with five first team players missing out.
Having lost our Europa League group stage opener to Real Sociedad last time out at Old Trafford, Erik ten Hag will be hoping to get our European campaign back on track by clinching three points in Moldova.
The Red Devils will be hoping to oust FC Sheriff in Thursday’s clash which kicks off at 5.45pm.
Martin Dubravka, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Donny van de Beek, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial will all miss the trip to face the side that beat Real Madrid in last season’s Champions League group stages.
Manchester United confirm 22-man squad for trip to Sheriff Tiraspol
After undertaking the final pre-match training session at Carrington this morning, Ten Hag has confirmed his 22-man travelling party.
Goalkeepers: De Gea, Heaton, Vitek.
Defenders: Lindelof, Maguire, Martinez, Malacia, Varane, Dalot, Shaw.
Midfielders: Fernandes, Eriksen, Fred, Casemiro, McTominay, Iqbal.
Forwards: Ronaldo, Antony, Sancho, Elanga, Garnacho, McNeill.
Ten Hag is expected to hold his pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow night’s trip at 5:45pm today.
With Sunday’s game against Leeds United postponed, the Dutchman may opt to go with his strongest side given our defeat against Sociedad and with there being no Premier League game this weekend.
Following the trip to Moldova, the Reds won’t be back in action until 2 October when we travel to face Manchester City in the first derby of the season.
The trip to the Etihad Stadium will be our first top-flight clash in 28 days having last played when we beat Arsenal 3-1 at Old Trafford on 4 September.
