Confirmed: Manchester United’s full squad vs PSG, injuries take its toll

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United’s full travelling squad for the clash against PSG has been confirmed with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer incredibly naming eight academy players.

The Norwegian is currently attempting to navigate through an injury crisis and has had to call upon the club’s more inexperienced players to replace the absent senior stars.

The likes of Ander Herrera, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata will miss the second leg against the French champions with United already 2-0 down.

There’s no pressure on Solskjaer or his players to deliver a result but many are still hopeful of an incredible comeback being on the cards.

The Red Devils also have to keep an eye on an arguably even more important fixture that’s coming up with Arsenal just on the horizon as the race for a top four spot heats up.

The experience for the youngsters in particular will be fantastic and one they’ll unlikely get to go through once again for a while longer.

The likes of Marcus Rashford, Andreas Pereira and Scott McTominay are almost certain to start but the rest of them will most likely spend their time on the bench.

It is perhaps too early to blood a few of them but should Manchester United quickly find the tie escaping from them, it might be wiser to substitute the more key players off the pitch given the fixture against the Gunners.
