Man Utd stars arrive at The Hyatt Hotel without Cristiano Ronaldo and Pogba in hint pair will be rested against West Ham

CRISTIANO RONALDO and Paul Pogba are likely to be given the night off as Manchester United prepare to face West Ham for the second time in four days.

The United squad arrived at Manchester’s Hyatt Hotel without two of their biggest stars in attendance.


That suggests the big-hitters will be rested as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rings the changes for the Carabao Cup tie.

The Red Devils boss is expected to make wholesale changes to the side that snatched a 2-1 victory over the Hammers in Sunday’s Premier League clash.

A quirk of the fixture list means the two sides meet again just four days later, this time at Old Trafford.

Star midfielder Bruno Fernandes was pictured at the Hyatt but he is likely to join other regulars such as skipper Harry Maguire and keeper David De Gea in taking a back seat.

That would pave the way for Jesse Lingard to build on his match-winning performance at London Stadium with a starting role at home.

Out-of-favour midfielder Donny Van De Beek could also get the nod as he struggles for minutes under Solskjaer.

And veteran striker Edinson Cavani is expected to come in for Ronaldo – the man he let take the famous No.7 shirt this season.

Also in the squad is defender Phil Jones, who could make an emotional return to action after 20 months out of the United first team.

The 29-year-old revealed how his knee injury saga left him “an absolute mess” as he suffered abuse from fans and regularly left the training ground in tears.

Jones last appeared in a senior game against Tranmere in January 2020 but is included in the squad to face West Ham.
