Man Utd trio left out of squad to face Real Sociedad
News » Premier League news » Manchester United news
Manchester United attacking trio Antony, Anthony Martial and Jadon Sancho won’t be facing Real Sociedad in the Europa League on Thursday.
The Red Devils are presently second in their group with 12 points on the board, three behind Sociedad, who have a 100 per cent record.
In order to leapfrog them, United must win by two clear goals tomorrow, but they will have to do so without the help of three attacking players.
Antony missed the recent win over West Ham United with an injury and he has yet to return to full training. Hence, he has not travelled to Spain.
Elsewhere, Martial has been involved in recent training sessions, but Erik ten Hag does not want to risk him against the La Liga outfit.
The Frenchman has just returned after a third injury this season. Ten Hag may want to handle him with caution until the World Cup winter break.
Meanwhile, Sancho has been ruled out with an illness.
