Manchester United name 24-man Europa League squad

Manchester United have named their 24-man squad for the Europa League ahead of the knockout stage of the competition.

Luke Shaw makes the squad as he continues his recovery from a double leg break suffered earlier this season, while Antonio Valencia and Marcos Rojo are also included despite the duo also suffering long-term injuries.

The likes of Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Paddy McNair are not in the list but they qualify to play due to their homegrown status.

Goalkeepers:

David de Gea

Sergio Romero

Sam Johnstone

Defenders:

Phil Jones

Marcos Rojo

Chris Smalling

Luke Shaw

Guillermo Varela

Matteo Darmian

Regan Poole

Midfielders:

Mata

Carrick

Blind

Young

Herrera

Valencia

Fellaini

Schneiderlin

Schweinsteiger

Lingard

Forwards:

Memphis Depay

Anthony Martial

Wayne Rooney

William Keane

Regan Poole, who recently received international clearance to play for Man United, and William Keane are brought into the squad while Nick Powell misses out after joining Hull City on loan.

United face Danish outfit FC Midtjylland in the first leg of their round of 32 tie on the 18th February.

Qualifying for the Europa League was a disappointment after United’s Champions League exit last year but the club should be aiming to win every competition they are in and supporters will expect a good performance against Midtjylland.
