Manchester United’s squad to face Fenerbahce has checked into the Lowry Hotel as part of their standard home match day ritual.
Notable players who were not spotted with the squad are Ander Herrera, Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia. All three played the full 90 minutes against Liverpool so there is every chance Jose Mourinho has taken this opportunity to rest them.
Other than that, Morgan Schneiderlin wasn’t spotted. He was missing against Liverpool due to suffering an injury in training and there is no confirmation as to whether he’s fit enough to return just yet.
Here are the confirmed squad members as reported by the MEN: De Gea, Romero, Johnstone, Fosu-Mensah, Darmian, Smalling, Bailly, Rojo, Shaw, Fellaini, Carrick, Mata, Lingard, Memphis, Ibrahimovic, Rooney, Rashford, Martial
As you can see, Henrikh Mkhitaryan is also not on the MEN’s list but we’re all expecting to see him in the squad having been passed as fully fit for Mourinho. Apparently Pogba and Mkhitaryan still live at the hotel, so that could explain that.
United will make a few changes tonight having played Liverpool only three days ago and with Chelsea coming up on Sunday but regardless of what team Mourinho puts out it should be strong enough to overcome Fenerbahce.
I’d personally like to see plenty of players rested ahead of Stamford Bridge, that’s the most important game, and I’d hate to see anybody pick up an injury which could rule themselves out of the match this weekend.
