Manchester United duo miss training ahead of Omonia

Two key Manchester United stars missed training ahead of their next outing.


Manchester United are set to face off with Cyprus-based outfit Omonia in a Europa League match on Thursday.

Manchester United head into the match sat second in Group E after two games.

The Red Devils picked up a win against Sherriff but also lost to Spanish side Real Sociedad, who top the group with six points.

As for Omonia, they are dead bottom of the group with no points. Neil Lennon’s side have scored one and conceded five so far and are expected to be an easy win for Manchester United.

However, it looks as though United will have to face Omania without two of their key players.

This comes with Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane missing training on Wednesday morning ahead of flying to Cyprus.

Maguire also missed the Manchester derby over the weekend through injury, but he has become something of a fringe star under Erik ten Hag anyway.

Varane, though, is a much bigger loss as he has been forming a solid partnership with Lisandro Martinez this season.

And whilst United can probably make do without the Frenchman for Thursday’s game, they are likely to want him back vs Everton on Sunday.

Manchester United head into the weekend’s Premier League action 6th in the table with four wins and three losses.

They had been in good form, but shipped six to Manchester City last weekend – a result which is expected to see Scott McTominay dropped for new signing Casemiro in gameweek 10.

As for Everton, despite a slow start and not scoring too many goals, they are currently 11th in the Premier League with two wins, four draws and two losses.
