Sanchez back in the United Squad


Share this article


Alexis Sanchez, Nemanja Matic and Matteo Darmian are back in the Manchester United squad for tomorrow's Champions League quarter final second leg away to Barcelona.

Ander Herrera misses out with a hamstring problem while Luke Shaw has traveled even though he's suspended for the match after picking up a yellow card last week.

United trail Barca 1-0 from the first leg at Old Trafford last Wednesday so the odds are stacked against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men.

Sanchez scored 47 goals in 141 games for Barca between 2011 and 2014 and left the Nou Camp with a La Liga winners medal from 2012/13.

The 30-year-old has only bagged five goals for United since arriving on a free transfer from Arsenal over a year ago.

Sanchez has missed more than 10 games this season due to injuries but all will be forgiven if he can help United advance to the semi finals of the Champions League.

United scored three goals in Paris in the last 16 so they've already shown a comeback is possible but Barca are unbeaten in 30 European home matches, a run that dates back to September 2013.

The Catalans have also progressed 36 out of the 38 times they won the away first leg in European competition. United have lost only twice in their last ten visits to Spain.

United squad to face 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.
