Manchester United will be without two key players for Thursday’s Europa League game against AC Milan at Old Trafford.

According to Evening Standard, Manchester United will be without forward Marcus Rashford for the Europa League last-16 first-leg clash against AC Milan.

Rashford was forced off midway through the second half as United beat Manchester City 2-0 on Sunday at the Etihad Stadium after suffering an ankle injury.

As per Sky Sports, scans revealed the striker had avoided ligament damage but the bruising sustained will not have subsided before Thursday’s game.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is also expected to miss Thursday’s Europa League game against AC Milan. He has been out with a thigh injury.
