Morgan Schneiderlin and Wayne Rooney miss Manchester United's trip to Wolfsburg

Manchester United are dealing with something of an injury crisis as they attempt to escape from the Champions League group stage.

Morgan Schneiderlin has failed to recover from the injury sustained against West Ham on Saturday, and has not travelled with Manchester United to Germany ahead of the club's crucial Champions League game against VfL Wolfsburg.

Other notable absentees include Wayne Rooney, whose ankle is still hungover, Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera and Phil Jones, along with long-term absentees Antonio Valencia and Luke Shaw. However, Paddy McNair, who was taken off at half-time on Saturday, has recovered sufficiently to travel.

McNair's replacement on the day, Guillermo Varela, is one of several kids in the travelling party: Andreas Pereira, Sean Goss and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson have also made the journey. And there's a return for not-quite-a-kid-any-more-but-certainly-not-a-fully-formed-footballer-yet Nick Powell, who might make the bench.

Full squad:

David De Gea, Sergio Romero; Paddy McNair, Chris Smalling, Guillermo Varela, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian; Bastian Schweinsteiger, Michael Carrick, Sean Goss, Nick Powell, Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard, Andreas Pereira, Juan Mata; Memphis Depay, Marouane Fellaini, Anthony Martial.
