Scott McTominay was a doubt heading into Thursday’s game and was withdrawn after 60 minutes so is back to being an injury concern.

Newly signed winger Amad Diallo made his highly anticipated debut against Real Sociedad in the Europa league but is unlikely to feature here. He has a good chance of making a full debut in the return leg on Thursday.
