Will these two key players be handed starts against Bayern Munich or will Ten Hag keep them benched?

Man United are without Jadon Sancho as well as Antony but still, Ten Hag kept Alejandro Garnacho on the bench against Brighton and we doubt if the youngster will get a start in midweek as well.

Manchester United head to Germany to take on Bayern Munich and all eyes will be on ETH to see what changes he makes to his starting line up.

The manager has a long injury list which forced him to make several changes to his line up on Saturday and one of the problematic areas for him was the attacking department. With Sancho and Antony out of the picture, Garnacho was hoping to move up the pecking order but the Argentine is a right-winger and this proving to be a headache for him as well as his manager.

Rashford and Garnacho both play on the right-hand side and now that the Man United boss has integrated Hojlund into his side, Garnacho is finding it really hard to get starts.

Marcus Rashford is ineffective while playing through the middle or out on the left so he has to operate on the right wing which means Garnacho has to remain on the bench. Bruno Fernandes has been preferred on the left wing and on Wednesday, he will remain in that position with Rashford playing on the right and Hojlund as the centre-forward.

Alejandro Garnacho had recently signed a new contract with Man United but the youngster will have to wait because his manager still does not think that he is good enough to start ahead of Rashford.

Sofyan Amrabat is the other big name who is waiting to make his debut for United and he has been training separately at Carrington in the buildup to the Bayern Munich game.

There are still question marks over his participation but if he is fit and available then it will be a big boost for Erik ten Hag.

As things stand, Amrabat and Mason Mount are both ruled out for the Champions League opener but the Morocco international is closer to full fitness than the ex-Chelsea midfielder.

Alejandro Garnacho will start on the bench at the Allianz Arena that’s for sure but with so many attackers missing the 19-year-old will definitely get game time, possibly around 15 to 20 minutes in the second half.
