Manchester United XI vs Barcelona: Team News, Injury Update and Predicted Lineup
Antony and Harry Maguire fit for tonight’s Europa League game, Manchester United have both Antony and Harry Maguire available for their starting line-up to face Barcelona in the Europa League today.
England defender Maguire missed the win over former club Leicester in the Premier League on Sunday with a knee issue but is available for the second leg of their enthralling play-off round tie.
Still, he is unlikely to start now Lisandro Martinez is free of the suspension that ruled him out of the first leg. With Martinez available, Luke Shaw will likely move from central defence to left-back in place of Tyrell Malacia.
Brazilian winger Antony, meanwhile, returns after a four-match absence with a leg injury to bolster Erik ten Hag’s attacking options.
United may decide to move Wout Weghorst back up front after Jadon Sancho excelled in behind the striker late on against Leicester, moving Marcus Rashford to the left wing.
However, Anthony Martial remains injured after failing to recover from a hip problem in time for the game at Old Trafford this evening.
Both Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek are long-term absentees in midfield.
Predicted Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Casemiro, Fred; Fernandes, Sancho, Rashford; Weghorst.
