Varane, Fred and Ronaldo Return to the Starting XI | Team News, Injury Updates, and Predicted Lineup – Manchester United vs Omonia Nicosia

Manchester United vs Omonia

The Manchester United team news is here as they prepare to take on Omonia Nicosia in the 4th group stage match of this season’s UEFA Europa League.

Omonia Nicosia head into Thursday’s clash in disappointing form, after losing 1-0 to AEL in the League, while Manchester United registered a 2-1 win over Everton during the weekend. After defeats in the first three Europa League group games, the Cypriot First Division side are obviously going to be eliminated from the Europa League if they can’t get a win in this one.

Injury/Suspension List:

Jadon Sancho was on the bench against Everton and might be given a chance. Academy stars Charlie McNeill, Joe Hugill, Shola Shoretire, Isak Hansen-Aarøen, Daniel Gore, Kobbie Mainoo and Sam Murray were all involved in United’s first-team training yesterday.

Facundo Pellistri has returned from injury, but Mason Greenwood is still suspended. Raphael Varane was back against the Toffees and could start on Thursday. Fred might start ahead of Christian Eriksen to give the Danish maestro some rest.

Donny van de Beek, Martin Dubravka and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are all left out of the squad due to injury concerns. Brandon Williams and Phil Jones have been left out of the squad for the group stage. Casemiro might start ahead of Scott McTominay. Antony Martial is out with an injury sustained in the game against Everton.

United boss Erik ten Hag said last week that Axel Tuanzebe is also battling a long-term injury problem, and the defender is facing a spell on the sidelines with the unspecified issue. Tyrell Malacia could get some game time in this one with Luke Shaw having stolen the left-back spot in recent weeks.
