Erik Ten Hag has endured a brutal start to the beginning of the premier league season, losing significant players to injuries, and having to use backups.
Harry Maguire is the latest player to pick up an injury, ruling him out of the trip to Bayern Munich along with Raphaël Varane, Mason Mount, Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia, Sofyan Amrabat, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Kobbie Mainoo.
Jadon Sancho would not be playing, after falling out with the Dutch boss. Anthony is not available as he is still dealing with assault allegations.
Netherlands midfielder Donny van de Beek has not been registered for the Champions League.
Manchester United would be going against a Bayern Munich team who haven’t lost a Champions League group stage game for nearly 10 years.
“One thing is true, from the start of last season I almost never started with the best starting XI, it was always something like an injury,” Ten Hag told a news conference in Munich on Tuesday.
“But you have to deal with it and we always get the results, apart from the period we are in now. It’s a concern but that’s why we constructed the squad with depth, so we can deal with it. The squad can deal with it.
“Injuries always come in top football because we’re living on the edge and injuries are coming up.
“We analyse why things happen but we also have to deal with the facts and it’s always about the players available. We have a strong side and we have to get the best out of it.”
