Manchester United name 20-man squad for PSG clash, five youngsters in
Manchester United have included five youngsters in the travelling squad ahead of Wednesday’s clash with PSG.
United are 2-0 down from the first leg and need an unlikely result to avoid elimination.
Star player and top scorer Paul Pogba is suspended.
United also have several players out injured. Ander Herrera, Anthony Martial, Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata, Phil Jones, Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard are all missing.
United have a crucial Premier League match away to Arsenal on Sunday, so one or two absences may be precautionary.
United confirmed the full squad for the PSG trip via the official website.
De Gea, Romero, Grant; Bailly, Dalot, Lindelof, Rojo, Shaw, Smalling, Williams, Young; Fred, Garner, Gomes, McTominay, Pereira; Chong, Greenwood, Lukaku, Rashford.
It is refreshing to see exciting young striker Mason Greenwood recovered from injury and making the trip.
Brandon Williams, Tahith Chong, Angel Gomes and James Garner are among the under-23 players stepping up.
With Andreas Pereira and Scott McTominay in contention to start, United are light of experienced options in midfield.
Fred may get an opportunity to shine, but PSG are formidable opponents and it will not be easy for any player to stand out in Paris.
