Manchester United will be looking to bounce back after suffering a 1-0 defeat to Barcelona on Wednesday in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.

Barcelona will play host to United on Tuesday as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer team try to overturn a goal deficit.

United currently have six injured players, they are Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic who have played major roles in the club’s success in the second half of the season.

Alexis Sanchez is another star who looks set to be recalled to the squad this weekend.

“He’s done lots of recovery work and is injury-free,” Solskjaer said of the Chilean.

“He’ll step up and train with the team, probably in the squad for West Ham on Saturday and then let’s see if he plays.”

Both Eric Bailly and Antonio Valencia are still recovering from injuries and are not expected to feature.

With certain players out injured, and United’s squad already being fairly thin when it comes to reliable backup players, youth players become the backup, and are placed into the first squad when they might not be ready for that level of play quite yet, for example, this season it has been Mason Greenwood and Scott McTominay who have been brought up to the first team fairly early, and have shown those signs of amateurism.
