Solskjaer Includes Unsettled Youngster In His Traveling Squad Ahead Of Europa League Clash


Manchester United will tackle AZ Alkmaar in matchday two Europa League fixture on Thursday and they are expected to leave Old Trafford today.

Meanwhile, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed the list of players who will be traveling to the Eredivisie side for the upcoming fixture.

Injured French international Paul Pogba couldn’t make the list, while longtime absentees Bailly, Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw are expectedly excluded.

Unsettled youngster, Tahith Chong made the cut desperately despite the uncertainty surrounding his career at the Theatre of Dreams as a result of lack of game-time.

The youngster has failed to nail down a spot in Solskjaer’s starting lineup and it doesn’t look like things will change anytime soon.

The Netherlands U21 star has featured in just one Premier League game this season and he is yet to convince Solskjaer of his ability to score goals.

According to the Daily Mail on Monday, Eredivisie side PSV Eindhoven is considering reaching a loan deal with United for the winger in January.

He will hope to feature against Alkmaar at the AFAS Stadion on Thursday.

See United full squad below: David De Gea, Sergio Romero, Lee Grant; Diogo Dalot, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Axel Tuanzebe, Marcos Rojo, Brandon William Scott McTominay, Nemanja Matic, Fred, James Garner, Andreas Pereira, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Angel Gomes, Daniel James; Tahith Chong, Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood.
