Man Utd squad to face Benfica announced
Manchester United have named a 22-man travelling party for Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Benfica at the Estadio da Luz.
The Red Devils left Manchester airport earlier this afternoon.
Among the players who boarded the flight was defender Marcos Rojo, who is back from his long-term knee injury, which was sustained against Anderlecht last season.
Manager Jose Mourinho is still without all of the players who were injured for last weekend’s 0-0 draw at Liverpool. That means Paul Pogba (hamstring), Marouane Fellaini (knee), Eric Bailly (knock), Michael Carrick (calf), plus and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (knee) are all absent.
The other notable names in the squad are young defender Axel Tuanzebe and midfielder Scott McTominay. Left-back Luke Shaw also makes the trip to Portugal.
