Phil Jones is not available for selection against Young Boys as the defender is not on the 25-man competition list, limiting Rangnick options.

He said after beating Crystal Palace: “The problem is we can only play players who are in the Champions League list.

“For example, Phil Jones, whom I would love to give game time on Wednesday after his long-term injury, unfortunately, he is not on the list, so we have to put our focus on players who will be allowed to play.

“It is possible, I don’t know if we play a completely new 10 players because I don’t know if we have enough players on the list but it’s definitely possible we could play with some new players.”
