Man Utd confirm 25-man Premier League squad

Manchester United have confirmed their 25-man Premier League squad for the first half of the campaign.

The Red Devils have had a mixed start to the new season, and they have picked up only six points from the opening four league matches.

They have the chance to bounce back after the international break with games against Brighton & Hove Albion, Burnley and Crystal Palace.

The club have now formally announced their 25-man squad for the league campaign which can’t be modified again until the New Year.

Here is the list

Goalkeepers: Andre Onana, Altay Bayindir, Tom Heaton

Defenders: Diogo Dalot, Jonny Evans*, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire*, Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Sergio Reguilon, Luke Shaw*, Raphael Varane, Aaron Wan-Bissaka*

Midfielders: Sofyan Amrabat, Casemiro, Christian Eriksen, Bruno Fernandes, Scott McTominay*, Mason Mount*, Facundo Pellistri, Donny van de Beek

Forwards: Antony, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford*, Jadon Sancho*

There are no surprise exclusions from the Red Devils. Donny van de Beek has made the cut despite not featuring in the matchday squads in the current season.

The Dutchman has been linked with a possible loan exit to Turkey in recent weeks, and his inclusion suggests that he could have some part to play.

Alejandro Garnacho, Rasmus Hojlund, Kobbie Mainoo, Amad Diallo and Hannibal Mejbri are not included as Under-21 players don’t need to be registered.

United resume their season after the international break against Brighton at Old Trafford. It won’t be a straightforward game despite the home advantage.

The club have had a sensational home record under Ten Hag for the past 12 months, but Brighton were the last team to beat them in their stadium in August 2022.

Hence, United need to play at their best to come on top. Brighton did the league double last term, but United beat them in the FA Cup semi-final on penalties.
