Early Squad News: Man United name 21-man squad to take on Valencia CF

Manchester United’s attentions turn back to the Champions League, as Jose Mourinho’s men look to end a run of three games without a win.

The club is in turmoil both on and off the field at the moment. The only way to get back on track? Scoring goals, putting points on the board. Valencia CF visit Old Trafford in what’ll be an intriguing match.

Do the Red Devils go out and attack and make a change to their tactics? Or do they sit back and try to hit the Spanish side on the counter?

Before that, an eagle-eyed Manchester Evening News reporter has unveiled the 21-man squad that’ll take on Valencia – and there are a few big omissions through injury, including Ander Herrera and Jesse Lingard.

It’s nice to see Diogo Dalot back in the mix for this one, while Andreas Pereira is also recalled. Alexis Sanchez will be looking to start after missing out completely against West Ham. He’ll be looking to right a few wrongs.

Manchester United’s 19-man squad in full (per the Manchester Evening News):

Goalkeepers: Sergio Romero, Lee Grant

Defenders: Antonio Valencia, Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw, Matteo Darmian, Diogo Dalot, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly

Midfielders: Fred, Scott McTominay, Juan Mata, Marouane Fellaini, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Andreas Pereira

Forwards: Alexis Sanchez, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Romelu Lukaku
