Preview: Lask Linz v Man Utd

Manchester United’s tie against Lask Linz will be played behind closed doors on Thursday. Phil Jones was involved in the team’s training sessions before the Reds flew out to Austria.

David De Gea, Sergio Romero, Nathan Bishop and Kieran O’Hara who is loan from Burton Albion were also present. The notable absentees were Diogo Dalot, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial, but that doesn’t mean that they are necessarily ruled out of the travelling squad. Lee Grant, Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford were also still missing.

Ole is due to hold a press conference from 18:00 GMT, when the manager will hopefully provide an update on the squad and our injured players.

Training Squad: David De Gea, Sergio Romero, Nathan Bishop, Kieran O’ Hara; Eric Bailly, Tim Fosu-Mensah, Phil Jones, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Axel Tuanzebe, Aaron Wan- Bissaka, Brandon Williams; Bruno Fernandes, Fred, Angel Gomes, Daniel James, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay, Andreas Pereira; Tahith Chong, Mason Greenwood, and Odion Ighalo.
