Tonight, they will face Galatasaray in the Champions League in the second group fixture having lost the first one to Bayern Munich.

Erik ten Hag desperately needs a victory to get things right but injuries are piling up and eight players are set to be absent against the Turkish giants.

Man Utd have confirmed that the likes of likes of Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Lisandro Martinez, Kobbie Mainoo, Amad, Donny van de Beek and Jadon Sancho are set to be unavailable.

However, there is a major boost with the return of Brazilian international, Antony.

The South American winger returned and trained with the squad during the weekend and Ten Hag has revealed the former Ajax man is in consideration to feature vs Galatasaray:

The Dutch manager said (Man Utd):

“Antony will be in consideration. Yesterday was his first time in team training. We have a final training [session] and then we’ll make a decision. But he will be in consideration, yeah.”

“I think the team news is probably [just that] Antony dos Santos can return.”

The Old Trafford boss has also suggested that Sergio Reguilon could once again be unavailable and in such a scenario, Amrabat may have to feature in the LB role again.

Have your say – Who will come out on top tonight?
