Manchester United vs Ajax: Full squad for Europa League final

by Sam Peoples

Jose Mourinho has taken a 20-man Manchester United squad to Stockholm for Wednesday night’s Europa League final.

David de Gea has travelled even though it is widely expected Sergio Romero will start against Ajax and in terms of defensive options both Phil Jones and Chris Smalling have travelled. One is likely to partner Daley Blind at centre-back but at this stage it isn’t known.

Youngsters Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Axel Tuanzebe are in the squad, as is goalkeeper Joel Pereira, but there are no other youngsters who were involved against Crystal Palace.

Here is the full squad via Manchester Evening News: David de Gea, Sergio Romero, Joel Pereira, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Antonio Valencia, Axel Tuanzebe, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian, Ander Herrera, Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford

All in all, it’s as strong a squad as we could hope with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw all out with injury. Two players won’t be named in the final 18-man match day squad and they are probably going to be Pereira and Fosu-Mensah looking at the list, so long as other players aren’t injured between now and kick-off.

As always, we will bring you the full starting XI when it is announced an hour before-kick off on Wednesday night.
