De Gea and Pogba amongst absentees at Man Utd training ahead of Partizan Belgrade clash

Manchester United are holding an open training session this morning before their clash with Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is holding a press conference later on in the evening, once the squad has touched down in Serbia. We’ll have updates from that after 6pm.

Charlotte Duncker of the Manchester Evening News reports from Carrington Training Complex.

The MEN reporter claims there’s no sign of David de Gea, Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw, Axel Tuanzebe and Nemanja Matic.

Moreover, Ethan Laird is training with the first team in addition to Brandon Williams, Tahith Chong, Angel Gomes, Mason Greenwood and James Garner.

Perhaps the biggest update from Duncker is Lingard’s return to first team training, so we can expect him to get minutes tomorrow evening.

The England international has been subject to criticism due to the lack of impact he’s had in the final third, yet to score or create an assist for the Red Devils this term.

Sergio Romero is expected to start between the sticks — as will be the case for all Europa League fixtures this season.

It comes as no surprise that Shaw and Matic are missing today, with the injured pair sent to Dubai for rehab.

Check out our match preview and predicted XI for tomorrow’s game.

More updates when we have them!
