Uruguay International Edison Cavani is in contention for a start, having trained with the squad this week.
“Tomorrow’s game, the only possible candidate might be Edi. We have to wait and see. He was training with the team yesterday and a couple of days before that so we have to wait and see how he feels today,” said Rangnick.
Another United player ruled out of the game is France international Anthony Martial.
“With Anthony, we’ll wait and see. It’s a question of pain and how tolerable the pain will be on his knee but, for tomorrow, he won’t be one of the players who is available.”
