Confirmed MUFC squad vs AZ Alkmaar; James and Gomes travel, Pogba out injured

James Garner and Angel Gomes have travelled to the Netherlands as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer names his squad to face AZ Alkmaar in tomorrow night’s Europa League clash.

The manager has named a 21-man squad for the trip and Mason Greenwood, who scored the only goal in United’s win over FK Astana, is again included in the squad.

Tahith Chong and Brandon Williams also travel with Solskjaer keen to give his youngsters experience in European competition, which will hopefully stand to them when United get back into the Champions League, granted they’re all still at the club when that eventually happens.

Gomes is back after recovering from an injury and he was one of United’s few stand out players from the opening Europa League encounter of the season.

The big news from the confirmed squad is Paul Pogba’s exclusion, as the club revealed that the midfielder “requires a period of further rest and conservative treatment for the foot injury he sustained during the game against Southampton in August.”

Solskjaer will hope to have the World Cup winner back for Sunday’s trip to Newcastle United.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka hasn’t travelled and will stay at home to recovery from a bout of tonsillitis.

The confirmed squad looks like this: David de Gea, Sergio Romero, Lee Grant; Diogo Dalot, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Axel Tuanzebe, Marcos Rojo, Brandon Williams; Scott McTominay, Nemanja Matic, Fred, James Garner, Andreas Pereira, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Angel Gomes, Daniel James; Tahith Chong, Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood.
