Manchester United’s biggest game of the season is closing in. The Red Devils host Celta Vigo, holding a slender 1-0 lead from the first leg in Spain last week. Marcus Rashford provided the all-important goal, but the game is still more than up for grabs; particularly if Jose Mourinho’s team don’t perform.
The Manchester Evening News‘ training squad information has proven to be quite reliable when it comes to what the eventual matchday squad looks like, and hopefully, for this match, it’ll be no different.
With several regulars missing out at the weekend, the squad is looking rather refreshed, considering our hectic fixture schedule. The likes of Paul Pogba, Eric Bailly, Antonio Valencia and Daley Blind all returned after missing out at the weekend which was great to see.
There was also spaces in the squad for Joel Pereira, Matthew Olosunde, Demetri Mitchell and Matty Willock, who are clearly knocking on the door of the first-team. Axel Tuanzebe and Scott McTominay also were involved.
This match will be one where the senior players like Michael Carrick, Wayne Rooney and Antonio Valencia will have to stand up and be counted. We need huge performances from every single player who starts in that game, and let’s hope we’re celebrating a massive result in just 24 hours time.
