Manchester United squad against Istanbul Basaksehir includes Mason Greenwood and Facundo Pellistri


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side face the Turkish side at Old Trafford tonight at Old Trafford as Man Utd continue to the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Mason Greenwood and Facundo Pellstri are with the Manchester United squad for tonight’s Champions League clash with Istanbul Basaksehir.The United team arrived at the Hilton hotel in Manchester city center on Tuesday afternoon to prepare for the game against the Turkish team, which will start at Old Trafford at 8 p.m. Basaksehir stayed at the Lowry Hotel, often used by United, on Monday night, so Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team had to find an alternate base.

Greenwood, Pellistri and Teden Mengi were among the team members spotted by MEN photographers outside the hotel. Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay have not been spotted or photographed, but they could join the squad later, although it is very possible that the two will miss tonight’s game.

Pogba trained with United at Carrington on Monday but missed out on the most recent victory over West Brom after receiving a ‘hit’ while playing for France against Sweden last week.

United are without Jesse Lingard, Luke Shaw and Eric Bailly for the game, while Sergio Romero, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo are not being considered for selection as it stands.

United players will travel from their hotel in Old Trafford ahead of tonight’s game, which will give Solskjaer and his side the chance to move up to nine points in their Champions League group. United have won their last two Premier League games, against Everton and West Brom, but lost the opposite game against Basaksehir in Istanbul.

Confirmed United Team Members:

David de Gea, Dean Henderson, Lee Grant; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Harry Maguire, Teden Mengi, Axel Tuanzebe, Victor Lindelof, Alex Telles, Brandon Williams; Donny Van de Beek. Nemanja Matic, Fred, Juan Mata, Bruno Fernandes, Facundo Pellstri, Daniel James; Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial, Edinson Cavani, Odion Ighalo.
