Mirror Online Sports 3 weeks ago

Manchester United have confirmed their 20-man travelling squad for the Europa League clash against Partizan Belgrade this Thursday.

As expected, Paul Pogba and David De Gea - who both missed Wednesday's training session - will not travel to Serbia for their European encounter.

Diogo Dalot, Luke Shaw, Nemanja Matic, Tim Fosu-Mensah, Axel Tuanzebe and long-term absentee Eric Bailly are also notably missing from the squad.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been able to include Jesse Lingard, who took part in the session at Carrington before the squad flew to Serbia for Thursday's match.

De Gea's absence means Sergio Romero will be between the sticks for United in Belgrade.

De Gea suffered an injury scare while on international duty with Spain earlier this month, appearing to hurt his hamstring in a Euro 2020 qualifier in Sweden, but was able to play in Sunday's 1-1 draw with Liverpool .

Pogba remains sidelined by a foot problem, having spent time in Dubai during the international break to try to regain fitness. Shaw and Matic were absent as they too have travelled to Dubai to take part in warm-weather training.

Tuanzebe added to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's injury woes when he withdrew from the starting XI to face Liverpool at Old Trafford with a hip problem.

But there was some better news as Lingard took part following a hamstring problem, while Anthony Martial and Aaron Wan-Bissaka were also involved after featuring at the weekend, as was Phil Jones after he made his return to the substitutes' bench.

With a number of players out, academy full-back Ethan Laird also took part in the session.

Travelling United squad

Sergio Romero, Lee Grant, Matej Kovar; Phil Jones, Ethan Laird, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Marcos Rojo, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Brandon Williams; Fred, James Garner, Daniel James, Jesse Lingard, Scott McTominay, Juan Mata, Andreas Pereira; Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford.
