What is the team news?
Strikers Edinson Cavani and Antony Martial are doubts for Man Utd after picking up knocks in the 3-1 win at West Ham last weekend.
Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said before their defeat by RB Leipzig on Tuesday night that neither player’s injury is serious, but was enough to miss the Champions League fixture.
Solskjaer had said: “Edinson and Anthony only minor niggles, but won’t be making the trip [to Leipzig].”
What have they said?
Solskjaer, on a war of words with the agent of Paul Pogba, Mino Raiola: “The squad is fine – they’re a team and they stick together.
“As soon as Paul’s agent realises this is a team sport and we work together, the better. That’s probably maybe the last thing I say on that. I don’t want to spend energy on that.”
