Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial will be absent for Manchester United's Europa League last-16 second leg, but top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic is in line to start against Rostov.

When asked about Rooney, boss Jose Mourinho said: "He got a kick in his knee area. He stays in medical department".

On Martial, Mourinho added: "He was injured for Chelsea match. He is out of my mind. Same players we had in last match, plus (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic."
