The confirmed Man Utd team news and line up for their trip to face AFC Bournemouth in the Premier League.

Antony will miss Manchester United’s clash with Bournemouth on Saturday evening due to injury.

Erik ten Hag has named an unchanged side from the team that drew 2-2 with Liverpool last weekend, with Marcus Rashford fit enough to start the match after his own fitness scare. Willy Kambwala and Harry Maguire continue their partnership in central defence, while teenage trio Ethan Wheatley, Harry Amass and Habeeb Ogunneye have all been named on the bench.

Antony was not spotted getting off the team bus that arrived at the Vitality Stadium and shortly afterwards club sources confirmed that he was missing due to injury.

It means that United have now had 57 separate cases of injury or illness that have caused a senior player to miss a competitive match this campaign.

United were already without the injured Scott McTominay, Raphael Varane and Jonny Evans for the trip to face Bournemouth following their recent setbacks.

United XI: Onana, Wan-Bissaka, Kambwala, Maguire, Dalot, Casemiro, Mainoo, Fernandes, Garnacho, Hojlund, Rashford Subs: Bayindir, Amass, Ogunneye, Amrabat, Eriksen, Mount, Amad, Forson, Wheatley.
