Luke Shaw, one of the club’s best performers this season, will definitely miss out after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season against Manchester City.
Romelu Lukaku, who featured off the bench during the 3-1 defeat to Pep Guardiola’s side, was sent back to Manchester from Belgium over the international break due to an ongoing hamstring problem.
Victor Lindelof – another defender in superb form – came off during Sweden’s meeting with Turkey at half time due to illness, and should recover in time for Saturday. Marcus Rashford, however, is more of a doubt after sustaining a knock against Croatia at Wembley over the weekend.
And to complete the list, Marouane Fellaini – evidently receiving due punishment from the gods for shaving off his majestic afro – could also miss out after Belgium manager Roberto Martinez decided he was not in the right condition for games against Iceland and Switzerland.
