Olé Gunnar Solskjaer will be missing some key players when we face LASK Linz in our Europa League encounter on Wednesday.

The players include Phil Jones, Axel Tuanzebe and Luke Shaw, who have been ruled out of playing for now, after sustaining an ankle injury in the 2-2 draw against Southampton.

Phil Jones was however, surprisingly included in Solskjaer’s 30 man squad for the clash, although it’s unlikely he’ll play.

United go into the match with a 5-0 advantage, thanks to goals from Odion Ighalo, Juan Mata, Andreas Pereira and Daniel James, when we met in the first leg back in March.

A post on United’s official website read: “Eric Bailly started the first leg and is available after overcoming the head injury he sustained against Chelsea in the Emirates FA Cup semi-final, but Luke Shaw, Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones are expected to remain on the sidelines.”

A few first team players are also expect to be rested, after helping United finish third in the Premier League in the just concluded season.
