Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani missing for Man Utd’s clash with AC Milan

Heavyweight Clash

Tonight’s Europa League last-16 clash at Old Trafford features two of European Football’s superpowers, both of whom have fallen on tougher times than they are used to over the last few years.

Manchester United and AC Milan last faced off 10 years ago in the Champions League, but it is the continent’s secondary competition that features the two giants this evening.

For United, the Europa League and FA Cup represent their best chances of securing silverware this season, as they remain 14 points behind local rivals Man City in the Premier League.

Unfortunately, the expected absence of former Red Devils star Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been confirmed, as he recovers from a thigh injury. The Swede of course won the Europa League with United back in 2017, his sole season with the club.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has sent out a strong team for tonight’s game, with Eric Bailly and Alex Telles coming in:

Stars miss out

Manchester United were expected to be without Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani tonight, and both do miss out.  Rashford was substituted with an ankle injury during the 2-0 win over Manchester City on Sunday, whilst Cavani is yet to return from a muscle injury.  

Dean Henderson also continues in the absence of David de Gea, following the birth of his first child.

AC Milan are also missing all of Theo Hernandez, Ismael Bennacer, Hakan Calhanoglu, Ante Rebic and Mario Mandzukic.
