The Frenchman is currently serving a three-match suspension after he picked a red card during United's 6-1 mauling by Tottenham.

The forward has already missed two league matches, with the Sunday tie set to be his last.

New summer signing Alex Telles is also due to be out of action after he recently tested positive for coronavirus that also ruled him out of the RB Leipzig Champions League meeting.
