Pellistri, Fosu-Mensah in Man Utd squad for Istanbul Basaksehir clash

Facundo Pellistri is in Manchester United's squad for tonight's Champions League clash with Istanbul Basaksehir.

The Manchester Evening News says Mason Greenwood and Pellstri are with United's squad for tonight's Champions League clash with Istanbul Basaksehir.

The United team arrived at The Hilton Hotel in Manchester city centre on Tuesday afternoon to prepare for the game against the Turkish side, which kicks off at Old Trafford at 8pm. Basaksehir stayed over at the Lowry Hotel, which is often used by United, on Monday night, so Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad had to find an alternative base.

Greenwood, Pellistri and Teden Mengi were among those squad members spotted outside the hotel. Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay weren't seen, but they could be joining up with the squad later, though it's very possible that both will miss tonight's game.

Pogba trained with United at Carrington on Monday, but missed the most recent win over West Brom after picking up a "knock" while playing for France against Sweden last week.

Confirmed United squad members:

David de Gea, Dean Henderson, Lee Grant; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Harry Maguire, Teden Mengi, Axel Tuanzebe, Victor Lindelof, Alex Telles, Brandon Williams; Donny Van de Beek. Nemanja Matic, Fred, Juan Mata, Bruno Fernandes, Facundo Pellstri, Daniel James; Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial, Edinson Cavani, Odion Ighalo.
