Missing Players and team news:


Milan’s main man Ibrahimovic would dearly love to line up against his former employers this week after missing the first leg, but the 39-year-old – who has just earned a recall to the Sweden national team – may only be considered for a spot on the bench after overcoming a thigh problem. However, two players who missed the first leg in Hakan Calhanoglu and Theo Hernandez are both back in the fold for the hosts, but Ante Rebic’s return against Napoli ended on a sour note as he was sent off – and subsequently hit with a two-game domestic ban – for insulting an official. Franck Kessie caught the eye at Old Trafford with his assured display in midfield, and the Ivory Coast international could find himself alongside Soualiho Meite this week if Sandro Tonali once again drops down to the substitutes bench. As for United, doubts continue to persist over the fitness of Cavani, Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek, but the latter is supposedly intent on heading for the exit door after struggling to get a look-in when fully fit. Anthony Martial’s absence against West Ham depleted Solskjaer’s striking options further, but the Frenchman is understood to have a good chance of coming back for this one, and he will certainly spearhead the attack if Cavani is not passed fit, although the Uruguayan is “very likely” to be ready, according to the Red Devils boss. David de Gea has completed a mandatory isolation period after returning from Spain to be with his newborn child, but Henderson is likely to reprise his role in between the sticks in any case.
