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

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final with Granada.

Manchester United will look to take a step closer to Europa League glory when playing host to Granada on Thursday evening.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team hold a 2-0 advantage after the first leg courtesy of goals from Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes.

Although a number of players will miss this game, United are in good spirits after their second-half comeback to defeat Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Man United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of welcoming the La Liga side to Old Trafford for the second leg of this quarter-final tie.

Eric Bailly

Bailly returned a positive coronavirus test while on duty with the Ivory Coast. While the defender may return to England in time for Thursday's game, he will have to go through quarantine protocols before being considered for selection.

Jones is yet to pull on the red jersey this season due to his ongoing knee problem, and the defender may not be ready for action until the start of the 2021-22 campaign.

Possible return date: First leg of semi-final

Like Maguire, Shaw was cautioned during the first leg in Spain, resulting in his suspension. Alex Telles is expected to come into the side as a like-for-like replacement.

McTominay completes the list of players who miss out on Thursday evening. However, United are well stocked for options in the middle of the park with Nemanja Matic likely to get the nod in place of the Scot.
