Manchester United trio Antony, Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire are all ‘doubtful’ to recover from injury in time to face Barcelona this week, according to the club website.

All three were absent from the squad to face Leicester City at the weekend, and were not pictured in training on Monday.

Along with long-term absentees Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek, the trio are expected to miss out.

Maguire was on the bench against Barcelona last week and started against Leeds, before picking up an injury which could rule him out of the second leg.

There was a positive injury update on Antony last week from manager Erik ten Hag, but it does not sound like he will be back and considered as a starter.

This could change if he is pictured in training later today, but at present it looks unlikely. A place on the bench is the best he can hope for if fit.

All three players will be desperate to recover, with the Carabao Cup final also on the horizon. United’s squad is continually being tested during this busy period.

Scott McTominay is back from injury after making his return at the weekend as a substitute.

United also welcome back Marcel Sabitzer and Lisandro Martinez from suspension after they missed the first leg.
