“Manchester United” suffered another injury ahead of the Europa League match against “Sevilla”.
Eric ten Haag’s side face Europa League champions Sevilla in the first leg of the competition’s quarter-finals at Old Trafford on Thursday. After winning the Carabao Cup in February, Manchester United are aiming for a treble this season as they prepare for the semi-finals of the FA Cup later this month.
With recent wins over Brentford and Everton, United have come through tough times and are strong contenders to continue their winning streak against struggling Sevilla in Spain’s La Liga. McTominay was sent off against Sevilla.
Scott McTominay, who has scored incredible goals in recent weeks, missed United’s first leg of their quarter-final against Sevilla through injury.
The midfielder scored four goals in two games for Scotland in European Championship qualifiers against Cyprus and Spain last month before scoring United’s first goal against Everton on Saturday. However, the Manchester Evening News claim that McTominay did not train with the rest of United’s squad on Wednesday afternoon and will not feature on Thursday evening.
McTominay joins Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw, Alejandro Garnacho, Donnie van de Beek and Tom Heaton in the treatment room ahead of Sevilla. However, the Scot’s absence will be offset by the return of Casemiro, who served a four-match ban, and the return of Christian Eriksen.
Indeed, he made his first appearance against Everton in 10 weeks as he recovered earlier than expected from injury. Alex Telles has been named in Sevilla’s squad for their Europa League game against Manchester United, with two players missing through injury.
Sevilla have announced that they will play Manchester United away at Old Trafford in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final.
The team was led by Brazilian left-back Alex Telles, who was loaned from United to the Spanish side for the season. Unlike the Premier League, UEFA rules stipulate that players can play for their parent club in European competitions. That means Telles can play in two games.
Former Manchester City Sevilla captain Jesús Navas faces Manchester United on Thursday, while Tottenham loanee Brian Gill and ex-Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic are also part of the tour group. However, the Spanish side will be without two injured players in the Europa League match. Midfielder Joan Jordan and winger Jesus “Tecatito” Corona are both ruled out. Another absentee is midfielder Pape Gué, who will miss the entire season as he plays for parent club Marseille in European competition.
Sevilla have named a 22-man squad to face Manchester United.
Other former Premier League players in Sevilla’s squad include ex-Tottenham winger Eric Lamela, ex-Liverpool player Suso and ex-Manchester City defender Karim Lekic. Argentina’s World Cup-winning trio of Gonzalo Montiel, Papu Gomez and Marcos Acuna will battle it out with this season’s top scorer Youssef Ennesiri to play at Old Trafford.
Here’s our full pick from Seville.
Goalkeepers: Bono, Dmitrovic, Alberto Flores
Defenders: Jesus Navas (c), Montiel, Bade, Marcao, Nianzu, Lesic, Acuna, Alex Telles.
Midfielders: Goodell, Fernando, Oliver, Rakitic (v/c)
Forwards: Ocampos, Lamela, Papu Gomes, Brian Gill, Suso, Rapa Mir, En-Nesiri
United are yet to announce their squad for their sixth consecutive Europa League game against Spanish opponents this season. They managed to bring back Casemiro as he was suspended domestically for his second leg win against Real Betis last month. However, he received a yellow card during the game and was suspended, so he missed the second game. But after Saturday’s 2-0 Premier League win over Everton, Marcus Rashford’s availability is in doubt.
Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford suffered a major injury while playing against Everton.
Manchester United’s Premier League game against Everton saw Marcus Rashford limp off the pitch with a serious injury. United dominated the game almost completely for 75 minutes, hitting Jordan Pickford with 21 shots in the first half.
They opened the scoring through Scott McTominay in the 36th minute and Anthony Martial’s assist for Rashford put United ahead in the 71st minute. Minutes later, however, Rashford stopped after checking the highball and pointed straight to the groin. Then, as the game went on, he first went through physical therapy and fell to the field. Erik ten Hag was forced into a change and United’s attack was replaced by England international Wout Wehorst.
Rashford then went straight into the tunnel, a very worrying sight for United fans given the schedule ahead. Work was done on site on the Ten Haag side. Manchester United qualify for the Champions League with a 2-0 win
