Manchester United missing nine first-team players for Galatasaray clash

Manchester United will be missing nine first-team players for Wednesday's key Champions League clash with Galatasaray.

Manchester United have confirmed their squad for Wednesday's Champions League clash against Galatasaray, with Rasmus Hojlund and Antony both returning from injuries.

The duo were absent against Everton in the Premier League on Sunday due to fitness problems, but both were able to train on Tuesday morning, and they are fit for the contest in Istanbul.

Luke Shaw made his injury return against Everton after three months out with a hamstring issue, and the England international is set to start again for the Red Devils.

Meanwhile, Kobbie Mainoo will be bidding to keep his spot in central midfield after putting in an excellent performance on his full Premier League debut.

Marcus Rashford has not made the trip, though, as the England international is suspended following his red card against Copenhagen in Man United's last match in the competition.

Dan Gore and Hannibal Mejbri are included, while there is also a spot on the plane for forward Joe Hugill, who is yet to make his senior debut for the club.

Casemiro, Lisandro Martinez, Mason Mount, Jonny Evans, Christian Eriksen, Tyrell Malacia and Amad Diallo are all still on the sidelines for the 20-time English champions through injury.

Meanwhile, Jadon Sancho is still not involved in the first-team picture at the club following his high-profile falling-out with Ten Hag.

Sancho is set to leave Man United when the January transfer window opens for business, and it is highly unlikely that he will play for the Red Devils again.

Facundo Pellistri made a positive impression off the bench against Everton on Sunday, and Ten Hag said during his pre-match press conference that the Uruguay international must now start having an impact as a starter when given the opportunity.

"He has to make also a step from bench player, coming in and having a good impact, to a starting XI player," he told reporters.

Meanwhile, Ten Hag also said that Alejandro Garnacho, who scored one of the best goals in Premier League history against Everton, "can be much better".

"I don't know if he has been training that, it won't be good for his back! He has that special talent, but I am more happy for his work off the ball against Everton. For me, it was his best game. He is going to be such a good player, for his age, for his talent, he can be much better," he added.

Man United are currently bottom of their Champions League section on three points, one point behind both third-placed Galatasaray and second-placed Copenhagen.

Man United squad vs. Galatasaray:

Onana, Bayindir, Heaton; Dalot, Lindelof, Maguire, Reguilon, Shaw, Varane, Wan-Bissaka; Amrabat, Fernandes, Gore, Hannibal, Mainoo, McTominay; Antony, Garnacho, Hojlund, Hugill, Martial, Pellistri
