Manchester United have made the trip to the Austrian city of Linz, where they’ll face Europa League knockout first-timers LASK on Thursday. The first leg of their round of 16 tie will be played behind closed doors, amid fears of exacerbating the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. Ole Gunnar Solskjær is without a string of regulars, but will still be expecting his side to get the job done at the first time of asking.
Anthony Martial, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Jesse Lingard and Diogo Dalot didn’t make the trip, and won’t feature. They join Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Lee Grant on the sidelines. Solskjær’s main selection dilemma is at right-back, where Axel Tuanzebe may have to deputise in what would be his first start since June.
