Man Utd players Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic, Eric Bailly and Antonio Valencia were missing from training and Marcus Rashford trained separately at first.

Manchester United are set to be without Ander Herrera for their Champions League quarter-final first leg with Barcelona.

Herrera was one of four players who sat out open training at United’s Carrington training complex on Tuesday and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not expect the Spaniard to be available for the Wednesday night tie.

Nemanja Matic, who was also among the absentees at Carrington, could recover to figure but Solskjaer may have to turn to Fred and Scott McTominay again. The pair started in United’s last 16 comeback at Paris Saint-Germain in the absence of Herrera, Matic and Paul Pogba.

Eric Bailly and Antonio Valencia are out with unspecified injuries and Alexis Sanchez will not be considered, despite returning to training.

“We still hope maybe that Nemanja can be ready,” Solskjaer said. “Ander probably out, but Eric and Antonio definitely out. Marcus needed the extra warm-up and hopefully he won’t get a reaction, he joined parts of it at the end but he couldn’t join the boxes, which is the fun part of training, but let’s see tomorrow. Hopefully he’ll be ready.

“Sanchez? First training session today with the team, he’s done lots of recovery work and is injury-free. He’ll step up and train with the team, probably in the squad for West Ham on Saturday and then let’s see if he plays. But he’s not going to be able to join in tomorrow.”
