Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw and Chris Smalling are all doubts for Manchester United when they take on Valencia tonight. Eric Bailly returned to training on Tuesday ahead of the Champions League clash, but Martial, Shaw and Smalling were all absent from the session.
Bailly played his first match for two months in last week’s draw with Arsenal but then sat out Saturday’s victory over Fulham, which Martial and Shaw also missed.
Smalling started that game but was replaced in the second half after suffering an injury.
With qualification for the knockout stages already secured boss Jose Mourinho will not take any risks and is likely to rest a number of players.
He has already announced that Paul Pogba, who has been left out of the starting line-up for the last two games, and Andreas Pereira will start, and goalkeeper Sergio Romero is also set to play.
Diogo Dalot, who has shone on his first two Premier League starts, looks likely to be rested after missing training along with fellow defender Matteo Darmian, while Victor Lindelof and Alexis Sanchez are definitely sidelined through injury.
There could be chances for 17-year-old academy stars Mason Greenwood and James Garner, who both took part in the session at Carrington.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
