Manchester United ‘s squad for their latest Champions League outing has been announced.
The Red Devils will resume their pursuit of the European Cup on Wednesday night, travelling to Turkey to take on Super Lig side Istanbul Basaksehir.
United will face the Turkish champions on the back of a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Arsenal last weekend.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping his troops will be able to extend their perfect record in Europe this season with an impressive performance in Istanbul.
The Norwegian, however, won’t be able to call on the services of all his first-team players for the trip to Turkey.
Summer signing Alex Telles will miss Wednesday’s match due to a recent positive COVID-19 test. The Brazilian has yet to feature for United since their 2-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain late last month.
Solskjaer will, however, be able to call on the services of Anthony Martial for tomorrow’s match.
The France international missed Sunday’s defeat to Arsenal through suspension but is back in the squad for United’s third Group H match.

Solskjaer is eager for his troops to get back in the win column as soon as possible and lay the groundwork for a consistent run of form.
“The main thing is working hard, trying to improve,” he said. “Coming into training each day, trying to improve.
“We want to be consistent. Last season when we found consistency we achieved third in the Premier League and Champions League football.”
He added: “Well we work every day for our fans to have something to celebrate.
“The process we are going through, we are focused and hopefully tomorrow night we can stamp our authority on the group.”
