Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is taking a 22-man squad to Barcelona for the UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg on Tuesday night.

The Reds were beaten 1-0 in the first leg at Old Trafford last week and fly to Catalonia this Monday morning, determined to stage a comeback to earn qualification to the competition’s semi-finals.

Solskjaer has named a large group for the trip that notably includes Matteo Darmian, Nemanja Matic and Alexis Sanchez, who have all recently been missing due to injury.

Luke Shaw is among the travelling players, despite the fact he is suspended for the match after picking up a yellow card against the Spanish league leaders last week.

Man Utd squad to Barcelona:

David De Gea, Sergio Romero, Lee Grant, Diogo Dalot, Matteo Darmian, Ashley Young, Phil Jones, Victor Lindelof, Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw, Fred, Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay, Andreas Pereira, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Anthony Martial, Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford.
