Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Villarreal

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's injury and suspension news ahead of Tuesday's Champions League clash with Villarreal.

Fresh from Saturday's 4-1 defeat at Watford in the Premier League, Manchester United will resume their Champions League campaign with a clash against Villarreal on Tuesday.

The loss at Vicarage Road made it five defeats from their last seven league matches, which has seen the Red Devils fall 12 points off the top of the Premier League table.

The Red Devils are currently top of their Champions League section, though, picking up seven points from four matches in Group F, which has left them on course for the knockout round of the competition.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Man United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their trip to Spain.
