Middlesbrough v United - Early Team-News

Middlesbrough v United - Early Team-News

The games really are coming thick and fast for Manchester United at the moment.

Hot on the heels of our trip to take on Chelsea in the FA Cup on Monday and then entertaining FC Rostov in the Europa League on Thursday, Manchester United are on the road again this weekend taking on Middlesbrough on their home patch.

Ahead of the game we`ve assembled some early team-new.

Starting with our hosts Middlesbrough:

After dispensing of the services of Aitor Karanka in midweek, Middlesbrough have placed Steve Agnew in temporary charge.

Agnew will be hoping that Bernado Espinsoa and Rudy Gestede will be available after picking up injuries.

However, the Middlesbrough caretaker boss will be without the services of Daniel Ayala, Calum Chambers and George Friend.

But Adlene Guedioura is available for selection after missing out last time, against Manchester City, due to being cup-tied.

Continuing with Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho will be without the services of Paul Pogba after the French midfielder picked up a hamstring injury in the midweek victory over FC Rostov.

Daley Blind is also rated as a doubt after receiving a blow to the head in the Europa League tie against FC Rostov.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ander Herrera are both absent through suspension.

But, on a positive note, Wayne Rooney, Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial may be available for selection.
