Manchester United have two players who are likely to be back from injury as Erik ten Hag’s team travel to face Galatasaray.

Rasmus Højlund missed the latest set of international fixtures with Denmark due to an injury he sustained against Luton Town three weeks ago.

He was also unavailable for Erik ten Hag to select him during Manchester United‘s 3-0 win over Everton on Sunday evening, with his replacement Anthony Martial scoring in the tie.

Højlund has been crucial for United in the Champions League, scoring five goals so far in the competition, although the side sit bottom of their group with just one win in four.

Antony was also unavailable to face Everton after picking up a knock in training ahead of the tie.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Ten Hag was asked about the pair’s availability, to which he replied: “They are in the squad.”

Ten Hag was also asked if there is any worry that Kobbie Mainoo may not be able to handle such a hostile atmosphere as United travel to Istanbul to face Galatasaray, hinting that the player may start.

“No. We don’t have fear,” was his reply, before adding a famous old United adage. “If players are good enough, they are old enough.”
