Manchester United face off against RB Leipzig this evening in the Champions League looking to follow up on their impressive win against PSG last week. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to name a similar squad for the match at Old Trafford.
Eric Bailly and Jesse Lingard are the only two players definitely out of the game injured.
Alex Telles was not spotted with the rest of the squad and he also wasn’t snapped in the last training session.
The left-back missed the match with Chelsea at the weekend in the Premier League and it appears he may be absent again this evening.
Centre-back Victor Lindelof was also not spotted with the rest of his team-mates.

Ahead of the match Solskjaer confirmed his squad for the match is looking fairly settled.
“More or less the same squad,” Solskjaer said on Tuesday.
“There are a couple of doubts and knocks as you normally [have] after a tight weekend game as we had against Chelsea, but I think we will more or less have the same squad.”
United can name 12 substitutes for the Champions League and use up to five of them during the 90 minutes.
United boss Solskjaer has also opened up on how he plans on using his squad this season.
“It’s going to be a long season,” he explained. “Of course, the depth of our squad is better now.

“It’s hard to leave players out like the last game with Donny, Nemanja and Paul to start on the bench, as midfielders they are all experienced international footballers.
“It’s not easy but then, as I’ve said, we have so many games this season, they are all going to play a big, massive part in different periods of the season. I don’t think anyone is able to play all of them.
“There’s a balance when you put 11 together, it’s all important we all work well as a team – is it three or four or two?
“All sorts of discussions and who is on form and who maybe needs a break. All these little things.”
United take on RB Leipzig from 8pm this evening at Old Trafford.
