Manchester United will be without Marcus Rashford as they aim to put their Europa League campaign back on track against FC Sheriff Tiraspol away in Moldova, after a disappointing 0-1 home defeat to Real Sociedad in their opening Group E game held last week Thursday at Old Trafford.
However, last weekend’s Premier League fixtures postponement as a mark of honor for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II who passed away may have given United manager, Erik ten Hag enough days to prepare side for the Moldova trip.
Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka also miss out of this crucial tie, but the Dutchman is still spoil for choices in Cristiano Ronaldo, Anthony, Casemiro, Eriksen, Malacia and Martinez.
Still they must be weary of a FC Sherif Tiraspol side who have shown they could hold their own against any European football powerhouses judging by their incredible 1-2 victory over 13th-time European Champions Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu last season in the Champions League.
Interestingly, the Moldovan side lead the group after winning 0-3 away against Omonia Nicosia of Greece in the opening group game, and will now fancy their chance at the Zimbru Stadium in Chisinau.
