Rashford named in Man Utd's travelling squad for Sevilla clash but three key players missing

Marcus Rashford has been named in Manchester United's travelling squad for their Europa League clash with Sevilla.

United travel to face the La Liga side in Andalusia on Thursday night with the quarter-final tie finely poised at 2-2 after the first leg at Old Trafford.

Rashford has been passed fit for the match after returning to training on Wednesday.

The England international, who has scored six goals in eight games in the Europa League this season, missed the first leg against Sevilla and the weekend win over Nottingham Forest with a groin injury.

Luke Shaw has also been named in the squad after missing United's last three matches with a hamstring problem.

Tyrell Malacia has also been included after missing the Forest win with a knee problem, while Marcel Sabitzer has also made the cut after being pulled from the starting line-up at the City Ground following an issue in the warm-up.

Their availability is a major boost for manager Erik ten Hag, who is without a number of first-team players for the trip to Spain.

Bruno Fernandes is suspended after picking up a booking in the first leg against Sevilla, while Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez both picked up serious injuries in that match.

Martinez has been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a fractured metatarsal, while Varane is expected to be out for 'a few weeks' with an unspecified injury sustained which forced him off at half-time.

Scott McTominay has also not been included after failing to recover from a knock, while Donny van de Beek and Alejandro Garnacho are long-term absentees.

Should they beat Sevilla, United will face either Juventus or Sporting Lisbon in the semi-finals of the Europa League, with the Italian side leading 1-0 from the first leg.
