Trio to miss Cup clash

Manchester United

Manchester United trio of Wayne Rooney, Michael Carrick and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are all doubts for the Blackburn FA Cup clash.

Rooney and Carrick missed Thursday’s Europa League tie against St Etienne with minor muscular injuries, with Mkhitaryan absent from the last-32 first-leg game through illness.

Centre-back Phil Jones will be hoping to return from a foot injury in time to face his former club, while Luke Shaw is pushing for a chance after being overlooked for United’s previous four squads.

Provisional squad: De Gea, Romero, Henderson, Darmian, Fosu-Mensah, Valencia, Young, Rojo, Jones, Tuanzebe, Smalling, Bailly, Blind, Shaw, Mata, Fellaini, Schweinsteiger, Herrera, Pogba, Lingard, Martial, Mkhitaryan, Rashford, Ibrahimovic.
