Henrikh Mkhitaryan & Wayne Rooney: Might not feature this weekend

Wayne Rooney, Michael Carrick and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are doubts for Manchester United’s FA Cup fifth-round trip to Blackburn.

Rooney and Carrick missed Thursday’s Europa League tie against St Etienne with minor muscular injuries, with Mkhitaryan absent from the last-32 first leg through illness.

Centre-back Jones will be hoping to return from a foot injury in time to face his former club, while Luke Shaw is pushing for a chance after being overlooked for United’s previous four squads.

Provisional squad: De Gea, Romero, Henderson, Darmian, Fosu-Mensah, Valencia, Young, Rojo, Jones, Tuanzebe, Smalling, Bailly, Blind, Shaw, Mata, Fellaini, Schweinsteiger, Herrera, Pogba, Lingard, Martial, Mkhitaryan, Rashford, Ibrahimovic.
