Manchester United squad vs Granada in full as Anthony Elanga included

2 min read

Anthony Elanga has been named in Manchester United’s travelling squad for their Europa League quarter-final first-leg away to Granada.

The teenage forward could make his senior debut after United added him to their B-List for the competition earlier in the week.

Elanga, 18, penned a new long-term contract with the club last month and is back to full fitness after overcoming a recent collarbone injury.

The Swedish striker, who can also be used out wide, won the prestigious Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year award at United last season and has led the line for Neil Wood’s U23s this term, scoring six goals from 12 games in the league and two from four in the EFL Trophy.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side travel to Spain on Wednesday afternoon as they prepare for their quarter-final knockout tie against the La Liga side and have been boosted by the inclusion of forward Marcus Rashford.

The England international limped out of the weekend win over Brighton and was not pictured at first-team training on Tuesday, but trained on Wednesday morning and could feature.

United are already without French forward Anthony Martial for the foreseeable future after he sustained a knee injury while away on international duty last week. Solskjaer has already warned he could be out for the remainder of the season, although there are slim hopes he could return next month.

Defender Eric Bailly also misses the game having tested positive for COVID-19 during the international break while on duty with the Ivory Coast, the defender is yet to return to the UK.

Juan Mata and Alex Telles will both travel after recovering from recent injuries, while defender Phil Jones is still out.
