The Manchester Evening News has published Manchester United’s squad list ahead of the FA Cup clash against Watford on Saturday night.
Jesse Lingard has been included in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s provisional squad for tonight’s third round tie versus Watford.
The Red Devils reached the semi-finals last year but suffered defeat against Frank Lampard’s side.
Solskjaer has already said that changes will be made — with Netherlands international Donny van de Beek set for a rare start.
The boss said: “Donny is going to play tomorrow, it’s another chance for him. And, yes, I’ve spoken to him and made him aware of how much we rate him but he will play tomorrow and it’s a good chance again for him to kick on.”
Lingard, however, hasn’t played for United since our Carabao Cup win over Brighton at the end of September. His inclusion in the squad versus Watford could see him get some much-needed minutes on the pitch, and how knows, in the middle of a transfer window he could be playing for a move?
The MEN note that Victor Lindelof and Brandon Williams were not spotted arriving at the team hotel before the game, though Solskjaer has already confirmed the latter will be in the squad.
Manchester United squad members vs Watford, as per Manchester Evening News: De Gea, Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Tuanzebe, Maguire, Bailly, Telles; Fred, McTominay, Matic, Van de Beek, Mata, Lingard; Martial, Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford, Ighalo.
We’ll have team news once it’s confirmed.
