De Gea, Pogba and Shaw miss Man Utd training but Lingard returns ahead of Europa League clash against Partizan Belgrade

DAVID DE GEA missed Manchester United training on Wednesday along with Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw.

It was a surprise to see the Spanish goalkeeper named in the starting XI for Sunday’s draw with Liverpool but he hasn’t trained since due to a groin problem.

Wooly hats and thick jumpers were the order of the day
Jesse Lingard was back in training
Anthony Martial was fit for the bench on Saturday

That makes Sergio Romero a likely feature in Thursday’s Europa League clash with Partizan Belgrade.

Paul Pogba also sat out the day’s workout after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed the midfielder was due for a foot scan on Monday.

A hamstring injury continues to keep Luke Shaw on the sidelines and fellow full-back Diogo Dalot confirmed his own absence on Twitter earlier in the week.

Two players who missed United‘s upturn in form against Liverpool remain absent.

Nemanja Matic picked up a knock while away with Serbia and Axel Tuanzebe injured his hip while warming up for the Reds match-up.

The good news arrived in the form of Jesse Lingard.

The England midfielder was able to train after shrugging off a hamstring injury.

And he was joined by academy defender Ethan Laird in Wednesday’s session before the squad’s evening flight to Serbia.

United kick-off in Belgrade at 5.55pm on Thursday against the side top of Group L.

A 0-0 draw at AZ Alkmaar kept the Red Devils on course to qualify for the knockouts but Solskjaer will be expected to finish first and secure a seeding for the last-32.
