Sanchez and Matic set to return for United with Herrera expected to stay home

Nemanja Matic and Alexis Sanchez will both return to the Manchester United squad to face Barcelona, ESPN report.
United face Barcelona at 8pm on Tuesday and the squad will fly out today.
One player not expected to fly is Ander Herrera.
The £30 million midfielder remains injured and is continuing his recovery.
Given his uncertain contract status, his availability for the rest of the season remains unclear.

Selection issues

United rotated the team against West Ham at the weekend, with Scott McTominay, Victor Lindelöf and Marcus Rashford all rested.
Matic is likely to remain a bench option at best, with Fred, Paul Pogba and McTominay likely to be United’s midfield trio.
Sanchez likely is a wildcard option off the bench. It’s hard to see Solskjaer throwing him straight in, but not inconceivable given his experience.

The biggest issue remains at full-back. Luke Shaw is suspended for the fixture after picking up a yellow card in the first leg.

If United are to drop Ashley Young after his terrible first leg performance, it would mean giving Marcos Rojo or Matteo Darmian a go at full-back.
That hardly seems fair on them given their lack of action, to be thrown back into such a big game.
It could be Young on one flank and Diogo Dalot on the other.
