14 teenagers are among United’s 18-man squad for the UEFA Europa League Group L game, as they’ve already reached the Round of 32 and a win against Astana would secure top spot.

Ethan Laird, Di’Shon Bernard and Dylan Levitt all make their first team debuts for United, while Luke Shaw makes his return after suffering an injury in August.

Jesse Lingard captains the team with veteran goalkeeper Lee Grant and defender Axel Tuanzebe among the handful of more experienced players.
