Manchester United have named their squad for this week's Champions League clash with Club Brugge.

Manchester United have named their travelling squad for this week's Champions League qualifier away to Club Brugge.

The Red Devils won the first leg 3-1, with a late goal from Marouane Fellaini extending the advantage gained from a Memphis Depay double.

United have listed 18 players who are flying to Belgium, announced via the club's official Twitter feed.

The 18-man squad is as follows: Romero, Johnstone; Blind, Darmian, McNair, Shaw, Smalling; Carrick, Fellaini, Herrera, Mata, Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger, Young, Hernandez, Januzaj, Memphis, Rooney.

Who's out?

The notable omission is goalkeeper David de Gea, who is yet to feature this season. He remains at home along with Victor Valdes and Anders Lindegaard, with Sam Johnstone backing in for Sergio Romero.

This has not negatively impacted United so far, yet to concede a goal in the Premier League.

Defender Marcos Rojo misses out, lacking match fitness, while Phil Jones remains sidelined with injury.

A draw would be enough to see United qualify for the group stages, and bring with it the financial reward which follows. This may yet lead to a late splurge in the transfer market.
