Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has confirmed key senior players will open opportunities for young promise on Thursday night.
United will host Real Sociedad in a last 32 Europa League second leg battle, where the job is virtually done after a 4-0 win in the reverse fixture.
Speaking to the media ahead of Thursday, Ole confirmed the likes of Paul Pogba, Donny van de Beek and Edinson Cavani will miss out through injury.
“They'll still be missing,” Ole told Man United’s media.
“They've not joined training so they won't be ready. no. Paul has been outside on the grass and is starting to step up his recovery but he's not near the team for this game.
The Norwegian coach also assured the club’s supporters another opportunity to watch the exciting young talents of Amad Diallo and Shola Shoretire.
“Amad and Shola will, of course, be involved. They are in the squad but I am not going to tell you if they are starting or not,” Solskjaer said.
