Manchester United vs Partizan Belgrade - Lindelof misses Partizan clash with back problem

Manchester United will be without central defender Victor Lindelof because of a back problem for the Europa League Group L clash against Partizan Belgrade

Youngsters Ethan Laird and Matej Kovar could be in the squad again as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer freshens up the group.

Left-back Luke Shaw, who has been sidelined since August with a hamstring injury, has been out on the grass training again, while midfielder Paul Pogba continues his recovery along with Eric Bailly, Axel Tuanzebe and Nemanja Matic.

Partizan boss Savo Milosevic has a full squad from which to choose as he attempts to gain revenge for a 1-0 defeat in Belgrade last month.

Milosevic has reported no injury problems and could field the same starting line-up as he did at the Stadion FK Partizan.

That would mean a return to Old Trafford for midfielder Zoran Tosic, who had a short spell with United earlier in his career.

Man Utd provisional squad: Romero, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Jones, Williams, Garner, McTominay, James, Lingard, Rashford, Greenwood, Kovar, Rojo, Young, Pereira, Fred, Mata, Laird.

Partizan Belgrade provisional squad: Stojkovic, Urosevic, Pavlovic, Ostojic, Miletic, Tosic, Natcho, Zdjelar, Soumah, Asano, Sadiq, Stevanovic, Vujacic, Brezancic, Pavlovic, Ivanovic, Scekic, Umar.
