Manchester United XI vs Barcelona: Predicted lineup, confirmed team news and injury latest for Europa League

February 22, 2023
  1. Manchester United manager Erik ten Haghas confirmed Harry Maguire and Antony are back in contention for Thursday’s Europa League clash with Barcelona.

The England defender missed the win over former club Leicester with a knee issue but is available for the second of their enthralling play-off.

Still, Maguire is unlikely to start now Lisandro Martinez is free of the suspension that ruled him out of the first leg.

With Martinez available, Luke Shaw will likely move to left-back in place of Tyrell Malaica.

Antony, meanwhile, returns after a four-match absence with a leg injury to bolster ten Hag’s attacking options.

Still, Anthony Martial remains injured after failing to recover from a hip problem in time for the game at Old Trafford.
